My friend Robyn K. was out visiting from Georgia so that's why we made a point of spending time up there with her and her three boys. I brought Hammy along and it was really fun having him with us. What did we do?
Hiked up to the "Y" on the mountain. It is straight up!
We hung out with Amara a couple times, one up Provo Canyon where the kids played in a stream and then we saw two moose, and then we went up to her house for a bbq and a movie. It was so fun seeing her.
I took the kids to the Hot air balloon festival on the 4th of July. It was fun seeing all the different balloons. The girls loved seeing a little girl and her American Girl Doll with her very own hot air balloon. Once we returned home, I received a picture from Robyn saying she had taken a picture of her son at the festival and hadn't even realized I was in the picture. Too funny!
The street where the parade was supposed to be was lined with tents, sleeping bags, couches, BBQs, tables and chairs, and people. We thought it was kind of funny that people were so serious about getting a good "position" for the parade, but then we thought it was actually a fun tradition that many of them had each year. I love doing silly things like that.
While driving home we were backed up for awhile and saw smoke. This is what we saw once we got closer.
Then we had to stop in Beaver for fresh cheese curd and ice cream. It's tradition.
Made one last stop for the kids to rest. The kids had fun with bows and arrows. It was so fun seeing them trying to figure them out. Literally. Sometimes the arrows were pointing backwards.
Such a fun trip. Such fun memories with my kids. So grateful I can pitch a tent, my kids are easy going and we have fun together. And EFY?....... G LOVED it. It's worth every penny. It's the right thing to do.
