Bear Sighting & Bear Trouble in Skagway Alaska

June 27, 2016

Our drive to Skagway, Alaska from Carcross, Yukon was one of the most scenic drives I’ve ever done in my life. There were beautiful mountains, lakes and waterfalls to soak in.  In some ways it was also unexpected because the north west corner of British Columbia was spectacular but the tourist map we had didn’t […]

Sand Dunes, Beaches and Trains in The Yukon

June 26, 2016

On Day Two we hit a wall. Is this really going to work?  A poem with the lyrics “no no no, they’re always saying no” keeps running through my head.  Are the kids really going to have fun when all we’re saying to them is “don’t do that”, “don’t touch that”, “stop that”, “be careful”.  […]

Camping, Being Tourist & Laundry in Whitehorse

June 26, 2016

Today is our first full day on our long anticipated Yukon summer adventure and I’m sitting at the laundromat. In truth I don’t mind so much.  I used to hate laundromats in the days when I had to use them for all my washing.  I used to buy more underwear or socks if I was […]

Packing Toys for a Canoe Trip

May 25, 2016

We recently took a 5 day canoe trip to prepare and plan for our 50 day canoe trip this summer. One of my packing questions was what toys to bring for the kids? Do we bring new toys that they haven’t grown bored of yet, but which are untested?  Or do we bring the well […]

Campfire Toasted Sandwiches

February 9, 2016

My husband is the cook in our family. He’s a fabulous cook although even he will admit that our food choices have declined since the kids started eating solid food.  It’s frustrating to make a nice dinner and then have two little kids turn their noses up to it.  Other times he makes “kid friendly” […]

The Environmental Fireplace is a Campfire in a Box

January 19, 2016

After naming the blog campfires and kids the the first piece of gear we purchased was related to campfires. When Dwane worked for Nahanni River Expeditions they took fire boxes on their canoe and rafting trips.  He remembers them as really easy to use, while creating really good heat for cooking and warmth and providing […]

What gear do we need to take our kids camping comfortably?

January 19, 2016

Pre-kids we did a lot of camping. When Dwane was guiding he would sleep in a tent more nights than in a bed during a year.  When we met we had two of everything, two tents, stoves, etc.  Now it feels like we don’t have the gear we need in order to take our kids […]

Our Wild Children

January 13, 2016

This blog is about taking our kids outside, on hikes, paddling, beachcombing & into the wilderness.  Our hope is to inspire and educate others to allow them to do the same.  We would like to build a community of like-minded families.  We intend to get the most from these experience by living in the moment while we are out […]
