Yes, I’m still posting about Alaska even though it was well over a month ago. But unless you want to look at pictures of boxes and chaos, this is the best I’ve got. I promise, these pictures are much more interesting!
One of the things I knew for sure I wanted to do with the girls was take them on their first camping trip in Alaska. Josh and I did most of dating up in the mountains of North Georgia and so even though we don’t get a chance to do a lot of hiking and camping down here anymore, it’s still something we both really love to do.
My girls made me proud 🙂
A stick and glitter shoes. What else does a girl need?
Diaper changes in the wild.
The most awesome thing about playing with leaves in Alaska? You don’t have to worry about ticks or snakes!
My mom got trapped in the tent. It was awsome. We pointed and laughed.
Eliza refused to cooperate with most pictures, of course.
Gigi and the big girls
Eklutna Lake. One of my most favorite spots in all of Alaska.
I think you can see why I love it so much.
Me and my girls
I promise this is real and not just a painted backdrop
The Bean, sticks, water and mud. Heaven.
Dogs were the icing on the cake
The dogs didn’t mind her little toddler throws
Pap and the big’uns
This picture makes me ridiculously happy
Boots. Now she’s serious.
Maybe my most favorite picture of my girls ever.
Mucky muck hands!
Wet britches, always the sign of a good time.
First camping trip also means first smores!
Eliza’s first marshmallow

It’s not a party until someone loses their shirt.
Mama and her babies
I was worried about how they would do sleeping in a tent in almost 24 hours of light
Clearly, I didn’t have much to worry about.
Except she didn’t really want to stay in the sleeping bag.
Of course Mr Brown Dog came camping!
