The sweetest little guy I know ❤️When the camera goes swimming. #lakeshark #wisconsinThese two. ❤️Turns out camping with a baby and two olders was not a relaxing choice. There were swarms of mosquitoes, I woke up every 45 mins, whisper screamed SHHHHHHHHH (on repeat) at everyone , forgot the salsa, froze my ass off... However, a fantastic choice WAS impulse buying the @backporchcoffeeroasters pour-over pouches. (swipe) I didn’t loud scream at my husband or kids because I was too busy enjoying my coffee 💆🏻♀️ @backporchcoffeeroasters if you would like to sponsor a tired camping mama, I will happily join your professional coffee drinking team.

Just east of Fresno, CA, in an area geographically similar to Yosemite, lies Kings Canyon National Park. After hearing about the canyon’s reputation for unrivaled beauty, we decided to meet some friends and check it out. We pulled into the entrance and I felt like I missed something.
Parents are often reluctant to take their child on multi-day visits to the backcountry. On the surface, I can understand their concerns but when I dig deeper it’s more often assumptions and irrational fears that keep a family inside. Hopefully this post will provide motivation and tips for outdoor sleepovers! Continue reading
Today we spent over 12 hours packing. Yes, it really took over 12 hours and we don’t have the kid to blame.
Zion From Bryce we drove down the gorgeous highway 89 and into the northern entrance of Zion. Having never visited Zion national park before I really had no idea what to expect.
The fun part of meeting friends in Joshua Tree is no cell reception. We rely on the old fashioned method of leaving notes on the back of campsite information boards. Just after midnight on Friday, we found our note, drove to our campsite, and discovered that someone else had parked their car and pitched their tent where ours was supposed to be.
I don’t know why I was nervous. The backcountry is about as uneventful as a place can get. In all the miles we covered the most exciting thing that happened was leaving Sage’s wipes by a log and trying to figure out how to change future poopy diapers with just a few squares of toilet paper.
This summer’s Lake Lopez kick off
This weekend, we took Sage on her first overnight backpacking trip in the San Bernardino Mountains. Our hike in started on Saturday late afternoon. We climbed 6.5 miles, 2,700 feet, and arrived at our campsite just before sunset.
Sage’s 2 month birthday was made even more special because it marked the beginning of Peter’s 6 week hiatus from work.
At 8am, in front of our hotel, we were met by our guide, Humphrey, and personal chef, Severini. After a quick stop at the Bushmen office, we were off to Arusha. Arusha is a very big city, one which serves as a jumping off point for the big Safari parks in Tanzania. It was the first large city we’ve spent any time in since arriving in Africa.
June 16th – Day 1
Liz: Watched by curious monkeys, we commenced our hike in the thick, lush, rainforest. Being from southern California, the depth of green in places like this never ceases to amaze me.
After 25 actual hours on airplanes and 42 total hours of travel time, we have made it to Moshi the town that sits at the base of Mt.Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. We are both deeply exhausted but happy to finally be here.
