You know those people who have a baby and then flood your feed with baby photos? Well, Iโ€™ve become one of them ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜

Happy first birthday sweet Desi! Canโ€™t wait to see you again! #cousins #babyspam #gazillionphotos #throwback ๐Ÿ“ท: @hiseanmarrs โœจ


Enjoying this time together. It is nonstop (especially this week) and he is a magnet for danger, and yet I am loving it. Absolutely loving it. โค๏ธ #momlife #babyspam #gazillionphotos ๐Ÿ“ท: @saltedbeard


Grandparents = Grand Angels ๐Ÿ˜‡ So grateful for these two and all the help and love they give to us and the lil guy. Especially this week while @ruff_cut_hawaii is away (swipe to see what heโ€™s been up to). #grateful #mahalomahalomahalo #granparents


Howโ€™s this cuteness? ๐Ÿ˜ #littlefriends #babyspam #gazillionphotos #buddies ๐Ÿ“ท & ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป @honu29


Thorne Bay, Alaska:.

You are the land of hard knocks. Everything requires more effort. On this trip getting water was a daily game of challenge and triumph. Food = hours on the sea, foraging and improvising (also, being friends with @kilinahe @m_batchelor & the @washburnfam boys who are so generous with their catches โœจ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŽฃ). Learning by trial and error is what living is made of here (Iโ€™m glad I still have eyebrows).

Over the past week I have been humbled by my lack of knowledge (sometimes sheer stupidity) over and over again. And thereโ€™s something about that, that I love. Thereโ€™s something about it all that makes me feel more human. Maybe thatโ€™s why I love camping too. Less convenience and more roughing it. Less instant answers and more problem solving. Thereโ€™s something kind of nice about things not being so easy or assumed.
Bringing the baby up here this year and seeing the wonderment through his eyes while trying to keep his wild wiggly being safe only added another layer.

Thank you for the good times Alaska. I love you forever. Canโ€™t wait till next year ๐Ÿ’™


Alaska has been great, but hard on the baby. His whole face is busted up from various bumps and stumbles ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’” But maybe if we put this bucket over his head no one will notice ๐Ÿ˜‰ #webrokethebaby #alaskanescape @alaskan_escape


โœŒ๐Ÿฝout Hawaiโ€™i. Alaska here we come! Mahalo @kimi_swimmy for the @yeti borrow, hopefully weโ€™ll return it filled with some salmon ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ#adventuresahead #babyspam #gazillionphotos (we actually donโ€™t leave till tonight, but Iโ€™m excited!)


Always looking for a stage on which to ham it up on. #babyspam #gazillionphotos #babyonayeti ๐Ÿ“ท: @saltedbeard


I treasure every moment with you Mom โค๏ธ
