Our Lives in the Outdoors (so far)

Lately I have been remodeling one of our bedrooms and converting it into a guest room. With five kids we have never had space for a spare room, until now. Our daughter and oldest moved out a few years ago, and my two oldest sons are now out on their own. My third son just graduated from high school and is looking at his options, which may involve moving out soon. I decided to do a photo wall in this new guest room to highlight our outdoor activities together over the years. I also decided to do it all in black and white with black frames. It was really difficult deciding what to print and put on the wall, as I loved so many of these photographs and the great memories that they conjured up. Below are the photos I originally selected, with only a fraction of them actually being printed, framed, and hung on the wall. The photos cover many years and a variety of activities and are not arranged in any particular order. Warning: there are a lot of photos here.
