12 weeks ago today @rebornbyadventure and I welcomed our daughter Zoey into this world. Since then she has taken road trips across 5 States, spent 16 nights out under the stars camping and seen some of my favorite nature places on the planet.
Well yesterday, she completed her first backpacking trip!!! We hiked roughly 21 miles over the 4 days and of those 4 days we spent 2 of them relaxing at one of my favorite lakes in WA.
As parents, our pace has slowed down and our bags are heavier but the rewards of seeing her smile and "oh" and "awe" at these places that we love and cherish is all I need to keep going.
