One Last Hurah for Summer

Yesterday I took the girls, along with some others in the ward, to the Zoo before the weather gets all cold. Kaitlyn had never been to the zoo (that she remembers) and she loved it. every time I ask her what her favorite animal was she tells me a different one, so she must have liked them all!
There were a lot of baby animals there this time. Kaitlyn loved the baby elephant Zuri. There was also a baby giraffe and baby tiger cubs. I guess the animals are drinking the same water as all the other girls in Utah!

All the kiddos! Phoenix, Kaitlyn, Jack, & Tanner

This tiger came right up to the glass and was licking it! The kids were going crazy!
Hailey had fun at the zoo too....eating her duck!

Bell Canyon

This summer Brian and I decided we wanted to go hiking. So about once a week-ish we would drop the girls off at my parents and head up the mountains.

One of our favorite hikes we found was the Bell Canyon Trail up off Wasatch. You start in the middle of some condos but once you’ve been going for about 20 minutes you walk up over this hump and all the sudden THIS is what you see:

It is beautiful. As we hiked around more we got some beautiful views of the salt lake valley. THIS is why I love living here and never want to leave!
