I'd love to say that our trip to Seattle/Portland included long outdoorsy hikes and stops at handmade markets and vintage stores- but we mostly ate, drank, hung out with awesome family, and introduced Juniper to swings. All in all- a wonderful break!

Spring Break Blues

Moonwalk from Reel Water Productions on Vimeo.
The ultimate full moon shot. Dean Potter walks a highline at Cathedral Peak as the sun sets and the moon rises. Shot from over 1 mile away with a Canon 800mm and 2X by Mikey Schaefer.

I'm missing Yosemite pretty bad right now and this video doesn't help. What also doesn't help is that everyone seems to be on spring break right now (including my husband) except me. Thank God for good friends who have us over for dinner and sunshine. Oh how I have missed you, sunshine!



I'm off to the pacific northwest for a week, but wanted to get a quick post in. I was inspired by Kate's last post about Kevin Russ that I pulled over to the side of the road a few times while driving around a napping Juniper. Actually I just held my iphone out the window to capture the turkeys. I had to majorly crop in on them- so the quality isn't great. But it was a good reminder that no matter the road we take, there's beauty to be found.

birthdays + the Scamp

February and March are big birthday months for our family. Nelson turned 2 on the 11th. He got a play kitchen for his Christmas/birthday present. D had a birthday on the 25th and is going on a ski vacation over spring break. Christmas, birthday and about any other present is getting rolled into that one. On the 26th I had a birthday. We celebrated with dinner out and D surprised me with this in black. (Note to self - I must keep writing gear roundups. They pay off!) And this weekend we are heading to Kentucky to celebrate the rest of our family's birthdays (there are four more) and really do it up for my mom who is turning 70!

In other news we had a chance to check out the Scamp last night. I'm sad to say that I don't think it is the one for us. My friend bought it to convert into a mobile shop and it would be perfect if you want to gut it. For our needs there were just too many camping comforts that either weren't there or needed an overhaul. I'm sad to say we passed. I do have a lead on another Scamp. A neighbor down the street has had one parked outside their house for as long as we've lived here. I've never seen them take it out. Now I just have to get up the nerve and straight up ask them if they want to sell it.

I won't give up on this dream!


the Scamp

If you follow us on facebook you already know that D and I have the opportunity to buy a Scamp. To say that I'm excited about this prospect is an understatement. It has been a dream of mine to own one of these beauties.  

We hope to get a chance to check it out later this week. And I promise to take pictures and post an update. My head is swimming with ideas of how to fix her up. Seriously, I can't believe one might be ours soon!

I think this might become a regular thing - finding beautiful videos of beautiful places set to beautiful music.
