It’s what we wear […]

      Outdoor Fashion Friday: New Kids’ Footwear *Muddy Munchkins by MyMayu Review and Giveaway*






        I am so SO excited to introduce you to Muddy Munchkins boots by MyMayu out of Canada. They are a “new kid on the block” and pushing out their first line of footwear for kids that keeps them dry, warm AND moving comfortably and safely. They are a solution to the annoying bulk of mud […]

        Ahnu Brand Spotlight and Giveaway






          Rarely is there a brand of footwear that Mtn Papa and I can agree on and love.  His feet are long and narrow, mine more “duck like” (short and wide).  What works for him rarely works for me and vice-versa.  However, I think we may have found a new favorite brand that we can both […]

          Best Hiking Gear for Kids






            As much as I know it can be hard to swallow because of how fast they grow, kids do benefit from proper hiking gear just like adults.  Here’s a list of some of our favorites that we have used and loved this summer.  Many of these links are affiliates.  Thank you so much for clicking […]

            Summertime Chaco Feet






              I am a long-time lover of Chacos.  The sandals, the lifestyle they promote and the pretty sweet tan lines. So much, in fact, that I wore them on my wedding day, 6.5 years ago.  While I wore brown, I’m not the only one wearing something other than heels on our big day and they are available […]

                All Weather Boots for Kids + Muck Hale Giveaway






                  I know it is only October, but we have seen an immense range of weather these past few weeks.  From summerish to winter (with 10 inches of snow) to a beautiful dry fall and then tons of moisture…and mud.  It’s tough to find footwear for the kids that can adequately cover all those conditions! Last […]

                  Cozying up with Slippers on my Feet!






                    What a crazy, crazy week it has been here.  Starting with the government shut down and all that has trickled down as effects of that and then 10+ inches of snow and a 12 hour power outage over the last 24 hours.  It’s hard not to feel slightly unsettled in a Park that is now […]

                    Best Kicks for Kids






                      While I know many people have already spent the big bucks on getting their kids set up for school, I couldn’t resist sharing some of our favorites from this spring/summer/fall.  While all our reviews are done on boys (sorry, that’s what we have here!), most of these shoes also come in “girl” colors.
