We went up to Yosemite for a long weekend the end of April. Matt was a speaker at the California Trails Conference and it was our first getaway with Jasper.
We stayed at Tenaya Lodge for a few nights and then at Wowona tent camping alongside the rushing river. Jasper was a real champ as the temps dropped to near freezing and we cuddled together to keep warm.
We were able to keep it green with the diapering even in the wild- we always use cotton prefolds and wool covers normally with the occasional bamboo Goodmama fitted diaper- and so this was a first for us to depart from that routine.
We did G Diapers which worked fine for the most part. They have a cotton outer, a nylon liner and then an insert which is like a thicker maxi pad. I would not ever use these on a regular basis but for travel, they are a good choice for us.
Unlike disposables, they biodegrade and can be flushed, composted or thrown in the trash. They did leak (our first ever nighttime leak) the first night at the lodge requiring the sheets to be changed. Made us miss our cloth diapers and we did cloth the rest of the trip for overnight and just toted the wet dipes home (he still did all his poops on the toilet even on the trip! Yay!) but yes, he did look cute in the G's and no rash from wearing them...
the beauty of Yosemite...such dramatic
weather changes from moment to moment.
The air is amazing up there and it truly is a magical part of the world.
We just love it and that is an understatement.

We spent our first summer up in the Sierras right by Yosemite when we fell in love, then returned last winter and was there skiing when we found out we were having a baby, got married up there last May and did a Yosemite hike the day before the wedding with our close pals and family, had a babymoon in September just before Jasper was born so for us to have his very first getaway be up here was very special for our family.
I feel blessed.
All three of us have the distinction of having our Venus in Scorpio which means we all enjoy the same things and like to be together doing things and having fun. So far, this is proving to be true. Pretty cool.
I mean look at this smile...he did not stop grinning...
