Follow us on Instagram!Happy belly. Happy life.For his 3rd birthday all he wanted was bike time 🚲 The sweetest day for the sweetest boy I know. We love you C-doo! Happy Happy BirthdayThey are makin’ some big plans out there and I think it’s going to end with Cedar stealing all the marshmallows. #natureplay #getoutside #ourlocalplaygroundMy girl fishes in off the shoulder dresses 👗 🎣 💥Dear body, I’m sorry I have said and thought so many terrible things about you. You give and give, I take and take. You have never let me down and I still call you names. 8 weeks ago you birthed a human in under two hours. Yesterday you ran 5 miles, today you ran 5 more. You’ve birthed three speedy times without any medical intervention or pain medication, you’ve been making milk for babies for 7 years, you’ve run marathons, hiked one of the tallest mountains in the world, climbed thousands of feet, biked and hiked hundreds of miles, backpacked, swam, surfed, skied, dove, lifted, traveled, held, carried, kissed, hugged, and healed. You have done ALL this and I still say you aren’t tight enough, tall enough, small enough, fast enough, smooth enough, strong enough, perky enough, pretty enough, bikini-ready enough... well enough is enough. It’s taken this 3rd pregnancy, my awesome birth and my speedy recovery to finally realize how amazing you are. So guess what? I am DONE (finished) thinking shitty things about you! I am sooo tired of hating you. If this is what a body looks like that can do and give ALL OF THIS then you are PERFECT. I love you and I am grateful for you. However many pounds you still carry from this last pregnancy are just fine. I promise to get off the scale, to nourish you and to continue working on healthy relationships with food. And you just keep doin’ your thing ok? Maybe if I start loving you more we can keep all this great stuff going another 50 years. Whattaya say? #effyourbeautystandards #bodyjustice🌟Shiloh Jasper Sedivec 🌟He finally has a name! Sweet Shiloh is 1 month old, 9 lbs 7oz and faring well in a busy and noisy home. Life with three is tender, exhausting, perfect, hilarious and overwhelming. I don’t have enough brain power or arms to meet everyone’s needs, it’s full on, I need a shower and a HOT cup of coffee but I am in love with this beautiful headache we’ve created. Caring for these peanuts is my greatest privilege and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you for joining this crazy crew of ours Shiloh. We love you. (Cedar wasn’t interested in being in a picture today so it looks like we have two but I swear there are 3 😂)

Last weekend, we checked an item off our adventure bucket list when we completed Cactus to Clouds (C2C) as a family. My first attempt in 2011 was thwarted by a cold I caught at 9 weeks pregnant. Peter ended up doing it anyway with his friend Gabe and I met them at the tram and hiked to the summit with our friends Greg and Cathleen.
Since then, the full C2C adventure never lined up well with our weekend travel schedules and despite how much we love adventure, taking Sage on the hike always felt a little daunting. Ultimately though, our curiosity about whether we could do it with a 2 year old won over and we decided to go for it. I mean, really…who doesn’t love a good sufferfest?
The last portion of our vacation was the big motivator for taking the trip. Our friend Greg was participating in the Zion 100, an ultra-marathon spanning 100 miles of the Zion wilderness. I was so excited about his race that I begged Peter to plan a vacation to Utah around the same time. He agreed and there we were, meeting everyone at Greg’s hotel to learn about our responsibilities as support crew and pacers. The race began in the dark, early in the morning on a Friday. (I was already so jealous of him)
Good morning Greg! Ready to run 100 miles?! Continue reading
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.
The last leg of our honeymoon was spent in lovely Boulder Colorado with our friends James and Rebecca. If there were an award for the “awesomest outdoor couple” these two would win.
