On Monday of Spring Break I got the brilliant idea, it was to go and hike up to Timpanogas Cave...Yeah I even went online and looked at the details of the hike... So we got all loaded up and all excited to go, we drove there only to see that there was lots of snow still up there and that the Cave was closed for the Season. I can't believe I didn't think of that...our snow at our house just melted, I guess I just assumed that it would be melted up there too. I felt pretty dumb, the kids were disappointed that they couldn't go into the "Cave" but we decided to make it a fun day anyways!!! We found another nature trail in the American Fork Canyon and we went hiking! We hiked to a picnic area and had our lunch. We played by the river, climbed on rocks....it ended up being perfect even if it wasn't what we had planned to do.
Here's my big Bray-Man!!! He is such a mountian goat. He loves exploring, climbing, throwing rocks into the river and leading the way!!
Kolby was happy and content the whole time. He looks so small next to his daddy. I love these guys!!!
Sophie get the most improved hiker award. At the beginning she was tenative and scared, always wanting to hold my hand...but then she became a little mountian goat too. She realized that it can be really fun to go hiking and exploring!! Good Job Sophie!!
Adelyn is so beautiful!! She was having a great time but then got alittle worried when we saw a sign that said "Stay on the path, rattlesnack reserve" She was really brave though and we didn't have any problems after that of "Staying on the path!" ;)
Here is a picture of how much braver Sophie got. She walked over to this big rock with Brayden and climbed up it all by herself!! Brayden was a big helper too. He's such a good big brother!!
Our four amazings kiddos!!! I'm the luckiest mom in the world!!!
Adelyn did the whole hike all by herself too!! What a big girl. Thanks for being my special helper Addy!!
Being out in the nature felt soooo good since we have been cooped up inside all winter because of the cold and a new baby!! Spring is beautiful, it's so rejuvinating and I love it!! It's fun to go out and do family activities outside again!!!
Wow, everyone was pretty tired, it was the kids idea to do a sleeping picture. I love it. Everyone did really good, except I think they forgot to explain the idea to Kolby!! ;) We had a great day. I love spending time together. Fun memories!!
