At the beginning of summer, I made a blog schedule, listing all the blog posts I planned to write because I would have so much time to write this summer. Boy, was I optimistic! Our summer was crazy busy on so many levels, and I found myself barely keeping up with everything. I had a bunch of kid projects--one son needed braces, another needed to learn to drive, two started at new colleges, etc. But there were a lot of fun things too. So instead of a blog post, I'm going to share some of my favorite pictures from the best parts of the summer. Here they are:
|My husband and me above Alta Ski Resort.|
|I came here with my youngest son for my birthday activity. I love how the trees arch over the pathway.|
|We hiked up to Stewart Falls on a hot day and enjoyed feeling the cool mist from the falls.|
|I love these Black-Eyed Susans I spotted a few days ago.|
|My mother-in-law took us to Yellowstone National Park. It was so beautiful. The kids' favorite activity was wading in the river. We found out later that a wolf was wading less than a mile downstream from us. (We got to see the wolf too.)|
|We adopted a new dog because, hey, I wasn't busy enough.We named her Cinnamon. We love her. She is so feisty, though,|
I sometimes think her name should be Tabasco. Next stop: Obedience school.
|As you can tell, we did a lot of hiking this summer. |
Here I am in a canyon near our house. I love the clear water in the background.
|My husband takes this big huge backpack on all our hikes.I tease him that he's overprepared. My youngest, overhearing me, |
has started overfilling his own backpack, saying he's "over-repaired too."
