Busy, Busy

On Saturday we got up, went to Macey’s and had free french toast for breakfast then went and saw


it was cute, I love the Toy Story movies, it definitely was scarier than the previous ones, and yes, I cried at the end. 

Then that night we drove down to 

manit temple

the Manti temple and saw the Mormon Miracle Pageant.  It was such a beautiful night.  I don’t think that we will go to it again until the kids are a little older though because it didn’t start until 9:30 pm and ended at 11:30, we didn’t get home until 1:30 am because it is an hour away and the I-15 was closed.  We had a very low key fathers day ( I even let Steven sleep in, even though Calvin got up 5 times during the night!).  Hope you all had a great weekend also.

Summer has officially begun!  We were able to take our first camping trip and hike.

That is our new tent behind us, it is HUGE with two rooms and a patio!


The view from our tent.


The kids enjoying the patio area.


We hiked up the first to the first waterfall toward Timpanogas.  It wasn’t too difficult, but Audrey said she was tired when we could still see our tent at the campsite, *sigh*.  She did really well though.

This big guy walked right in front of us on the trail.  Kind of intimidating, Peanut wanted to take it on though.


Audrey took this picture, pretty dang good if I do say so myself!

Beautiful, and only 20 minutes from our house.


To bad I cut off Steven’s head, it would have been a great photo, it’s still a good one of Calvin.  He always sits with his arms up like that, in the carseat, stroller, grocery cart, wherever.  He is in charge.camping-16
