We’re new parents. Our daughter, Olivia, just turned four months old. As you know, the shift to parenthood is a dramatic one. Life changes. It’s suddenly difficult to relate to those without kids—it’s impossible to understand the intensity of the passion and devotion you have for this child, and the shift in priorities, until you’re faced with it.

But on the other end, many parents are caught up in the hustle and bustle of status quo life. They’re content to burn the hours of the day on a decent job, to buy a decent house, to get the kids in a decent school, and to find a two weeks a year to forget about the the other 50.

Nothing against it, the average life has just never been for us.

Apple Picking in Oregon’s Hood River Valley

It was a crisp morning, cast over with a dewy, grey blanket and lazy to rise. A tiny sparkle of orange and yellow peeked from the trees, hinting that autumn had just arrived. We awoke with a mind for adventure, inspired by ever shrinking days, and set out to gallivant about the orchards, apple picking for the year’s first pie.

Tasting a Kiyokawa Apple

Along the deep blue river we sped east, hanging on the edge of Oregon, and into the canyon of the Columbia River Gorge. The massive river poured from a blue hole in the grey sky at the far end. At each winding turn we shed the unnecessarily constricting robe of adulthood, layer by layer until, through the blue hole, we were born children again open and ready for anything to come.
