Last weekend we hiked Rattlesnake Trail with the Aunties and caught wild brookies at Curtis Creek.
Thankfully, Brave loved doing both in her new Osprey Poco pack!
Proof that you don't have to stop doing the things you love when you start having offspring.
What's one thing you want to do more with your kids?

Love this post! SO many people told us we would have to give up our hobbies (ie backpacking, hiking, fishing) when we had our son. Completely wrong! We have been looking for a pack for our wee man, and I was wondering how you liked the Poco? A friend recommended it, and we were just reading the specs last night. Ironic!

I just love these pictures! Such a beautiful place! I was in Asheville this weekend and it was snowing! Crazy! We want to start camping again and going on more weekend road trips with our littles. We put those things on hold for a while because we had three littles in three years- it was crazy around here! We are hoping next fall we can pack up and head out for our first family camping trip. Any tips? And your little girl is just a cutie:)

I can't even begin to express how much I appreciate this post, and your words beneath those wonderful photos.

My husband and I would love to have offspring, but we have SO many hobbies and interests, and we've been told so many times that we'll just have to give them up. You and your family have shown me otherwise, and it has completely changed my outlook on the issue. I have appreciated every one of your posts since Brave's birth showing the difficulty of motherhood, but also showing that your life as you knew it does NOT have to end when they come.

With the most sincere thanks!

Yes! Why give up your hobbies when you can bring the little ones into them?! Love it!
