Hey all. It's been awhile since I've written anything. For that, I apologize! Here's what has happened since that last time I wrote... We bought a fly fishing/outdoor sporting goods store! Sometimes it's interesting how life works. You really never know what will come your way or when. Over the summer, my family and I were fishing at Stump Lake in the Greys River Wilderness. You have to hike just a little over a mile to get to the lake. We were the only people there for about an hour. Then, up walks a jolly guy with a long beard and introduced himself as "Grizz". If he reads this, I hope he kn ..read more

Until this year, I had only camped a few times in my life. The Summer of 2020, we went camping almost EVERY weekend! Here is my favorite gear I had as a newbie! I'm also linking the products below if I was able to find them, or a similar product. Camping Cot For the first couple of times out this summer, we didn't have cots. We slept on the ground. Which, is great.. but didn't feel great when I woke up the next day. We typically hike 5-10 miles a day when we camp, and that is hard to do when you don't get a good night of sleep.

I want to start off #momweek with my son's birth story because it's unique.

We don't know. Read on. My mom used to tell me that she could never keep a surprise from me. This story is my karma! My husband and I decided we were ready to start our family on whim. Fortunately, it happened pretty quick for us. We are blessed! I swear a mother's instinct is 100% legit. I really really wanted to know what our ..read more

National Elk Refuge Sleigh Ride in Jackson Hole

Traveling to Jackson Hole in the Winter? Make sure to go on a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge. You'll get up-close to Jackson Hole's largest elk herd via a horse drawn sleigh. February is the best time to go as all elk have migrated down to the refuge by then. Due to COVID, I recommend making a reservation ahead of time. Check out their website here for more information. Here's some photo's from our sleigh ride! This is definitely a fun activity to do with little ones. Very family friendly. Remember to bundle up! #jacksonhole #nationalelkrefuge ..read more
