Summer was awesome this year, despite being a little crazy with new baby, older kids actually having a life now, things like that.
But not wanting it to just go by wasted, we started Adventure Thursdays. And since I was too busy enjoying Summer (and eating up every minute with a newborn before she turned into the chunky little wild woman that she already is) to blog any of it, you get to see it now. Plus this way when next Summer rolls around I can see what we did and use it for a jumping point for ideas for new adventures.
For the first rewind, ZigZag.
I mentioned ZigZag when I finally got around to running it back in the Spring. I had been dying to get hubby and the kids up there since that day and we finally got around to it in July.
Adventure mode with the whole fam means I have Emily wrapped up
And Aaron gets Sam in the backpack.
Everyone else gets to burn off their energy.
They are troopers and I love it!
It's really a pretty short little hike, but a tad steep for little legs in a couple of spots. Still, check out Charli who at this point was actually running. Love.
Highlights on the way up were this pile of sticks that the kids were sure was an eagle nest,
And the view from the top is awesome.
The other side of our city
If you look far enough you get Utah Lake over the hills
Our side of of the city and the fields that surround us
This would be the "mid-valley" field and the spot where they are building the new middle school.
And look at the back side of this hill-trails galore!
I did some running through there last year and can't wait to really get back down in there to explore again next year. It's like a whole new world back in those little valleys.
No traipsing through the wilderness would be complete without a bazooka
Or a lightsaber.
And sweaty mom and dad from carrying the babies.
Nothing a round of popsicles couldn't fix.
