SO you want to get outdoors, but its Fall and you have a baby... that means changing weather, changing light, and just the general extra needs of hiking with a toddler. We try to get out with Jessamyn pretty frequently so today I thought I would put together a little guide for how we get out in the Fall (and soon to be Winter) with a baby.Read More
I would definitely not classify us as advanced hikers... more gentle wanderers. Hiking for us generally involves setting out on a trail and going as far as we can and then heading back home. I remember the first time we took Jessamyn hiking... it was actually on her first camping trip. We had a really rough, cold night... She was about six months old and basically just screamed the whole night long. That morning we got up and headed out on the trail. It was the first time the whole trip she didn't scream her head off... she actually giggled and enjoyed her self.
Since then we try to go out at least once a week, obviously this doesn't always happen but when it does it is always magical. Jessamyn always has the best time, meeting all the dogs, taking in all the scenery. Ben and I always seem to have the deepest and best conversations and inevitably we stumble across something beautiful.Read More
