we went camping, & this is what my iphone saw:


we had an excursion this week. i had to do some shooting around rocky mountain national park…so we made a couple days of it & had ourselves a camping trip! just the two of us, the dogs, and our little tent. it was last-minute (as the best trips are) & just grand. i'll tell you more about the trip when i post photos from the camera, but here are a few iphone snaps -- blogging from the road! take that, zenon, girl of the 21st century! (does anyone else know ALL the words to supernova girl? get at me.)

& also, a short list of my favorite parts while they're fresh: 
// total surprise: for all his athleticism & big-dog kinda personality...turns out archibald hates camping. but it was sweet to watch robbie carry him around, wrapped up in a blanket, singing to him. my heart spilled everywhere. 
// our arduous -- eventually miraculous -- journey to finding a campsite. 
// pulling over to take snaps of elk, grazing in a field. 
// & passing a million & a half deer, too. 
// watching robbie put his eagle scout skills to work -- he is an exceptional camping buddy! & also the king of marshmallow roasting. 
// overalls. duh.

  7. Oh my goodness this looks like the perfect, most fun little trip ever!! I love your outfit!

    and it is adorable that you guys carried your pup around! Reminds me of one of my neighbours who's dog got too old for the forest hill walk they do most days so he cut holes out of an old back pack and made a doggie carrier! So cute!

    Ps - where is your back pack from? It's so cute!

  9. @ngaio: thank you! the backpack is from target, last year. and the idea of cutting an old backpack into a dog carrier is GENIUS.

  10. @janice: oh, bernie LOVES camping! it's so strange to us because bernie is such a homebody, and archie loves being outside, the dog park, etc. but ya never know! we think archie was afraid of the fire.

  12. Overalls - perfect for camping! I haven't been camping since I was a little kid in NY! I'm the type that doesn't think there is such a thing as camping in FL where we live now! But rocky mountain? Much more my style and worth camping for!

  18. I used to live there and I never acclimated to the altitude. I wonder if it bothered Archie because he has a squished face and I know Frenchies have difficulty breathing.
