Here is a recent picture of our crazy Zack! He has turned into pure trouble!! He is into everything and has learned to climb up everything - even walls it seems. He is just too cute though so it is hard to ever get too mad at him. He had just finished licking a brownie spoon in the picture - he got a hitler mustache somehow while licking the spoon. Last weekend we went up to Snowbird to ride the tram. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful drive up the canyon seeing all the colorful leaves.

The tram ride was fun - they smash you in like sardines, but it is a quick ride to the top.
It was so windy and cold at the top. We spent most of our time on the top in the warming hut by the bathroom. Ty hates wind, so he walked around with his hood over his face most of the time. :)

Adam's canyon

A couple weekends ago we went for a hike up Adams Canyon. We loved this hike when we lived down here before and were excited to do it again now we're back. This is the view down from the top. There is a 400 ft. waterfall - more of a trickle now - at the top of the hike. When hiking with kids it is always great to have something exciting and fun at the end of the hike :)
There were little pools of freezing cold water they played in.
Rich just got a bunch of walking sticks from work that we tried out on this hike. They were awesome! Very entertaining for the kids, but also very helpful for Rich and I. We loved them!

This is the very beginning of the hike before you get up into the mountains.
We don't hike for very long before we have to stop and feed these crazy boys!
We saw this gross creature while hiking. I saw it first when I almost stepped on it! I hate snakes!
Kade wore the camel back and apparently drank water the whole time because we had to stop about every 10 min. for him to use the bathroom.
It was the perfect day for a hike and thankfully Ty and Kade made it the whole way without us having to pack them.

We had a fun, long day at Lagoon on Saturday. We went with a lot of my family and had a great day. It was 85 degrees, still warm but not too hot, and the lines were not very long. Lagoon-A-Beach was closed so we spent all day riding rides, and taking turns staying with the little kids on the rides while the others went and rode the big rides. I think everyones favorite was Wicked. We LOVED it! By midafternoon everyone was getting sleepy - Zack saw my dad and brother laying on the grass and ran over and cuddled in between them. My nephew Hank and Ty had a great day together - riding rides and playing.

Zack LOVED the rides - Ty was more selective on what he loved, but if he loved it he rode it over and over and over. This was one of the rides Ty LOVED!
We had a great day and loved being with family.
