Timpanogos Cave

This last weekend we wanted to go on a hike. We thought about some of our usual places, but then decided we should go to Timpanogos Cave. We drove through the Alpine Loop and the scenery was beautiful. The hike to the cave was more uphill than I was prepared for, but it was well worth it. The cave was fascinating and the hike down was much easier, so it turned out to be a fabulous outing.

Hint of Fall

We went up the canyon last weekend and I was amazed to see the colors changing already. Here are some images taken by the boys from the car.

Back to School

Now that both boys have had their first day back to school, I thought I would share pictures of them ready for school. Yesterday I listened to a show on NPR about back to school traditions. There were some cute ideas like recording the child's age, height, etc on a piece of paper and taking a picture of the child holding the sign or neighbors passing out Krispy Kreme donuts to the kids as they walk to school. One word of advice was to not let your child see you cry. When I heard this I thought to myself are the tears ones of sadness or joy? Hmmmm.

Burger Boy

Boy #2 ate an entire cheeseburger last night. Then he enjoyed his milkshake.
