My husband (the geologist) and I (the chemist) have two energetic boys. Early on with our oldest son we realized that being out in nature, away from electronics and the distractions of work and home, was the best place for us to be. Now that our boys are older (11 and 7) we are ready to up our outdoor adventure game and give backpacking a try. Once we decided that this was the year we would start backpacking we quickly realized there was a lot to learn, and not as many resources as I’d hoped to find on backpacking with kids. I hope the information we share with you in this blog helps inspire you to get outside with your family and friends to enjoy all that nature has to offer.

All of the pictures on this site were taken by us during our adventures.
