Family Hike






So on Saturday, we loaded up the car and took off out of town...ya right! Actually, we drove up the street and hiked the Mountain's Edge hill. It was very pleasant, mostly due to the wonderful weather over the weekend, which made it totally fun. Tons of people were out and about. The best part of hiking the trail was watching Bryanna hike most of the way up, she was a trooper! When she would get tired, she'd turn to Mark and say, "I want a hug!" I loved watching her have fun. It was challenging enough (not to mention carrying a 24 lb. baby up the hill didn't make it any easier) but short enough that kids can do it too. Next time I will definitely do the longer route now knowing what to expect. I always like to find something to do outside that gets my heat rate up so I'm not subject to my running path around my house (although that isn't so bad if I don't have to push both the kids every time in the double jogger! I like a good workout, but I'm not a masochist!!!)
If only the weather was pleasant year round...what would it be like? Would we be outside all of the time doing something fun, or would we get used to it and take the good weather for granted? I can only imagine the list of activities I would have lined up for every Saturday! If only...If only!!!

That looks like so much fun! Doesn't look like too much has changed since we left... building certainly has slowed down! We have a home in Mts Edge but never took that hike up the "Mountain"... looks like a great time though! Good for you guy for taking advantage of the nice weather. Parker was born July 27, 07.

I thought about mentioning it to justin that we should take a hike on that trail but, then I thought about the whole carrying the baby up the hill. I quickly changed my mind. It was so beautiful this weekend though, I should have done it!! Looks like you had fun!!

So that's what it looks like up there? Is that the hill where the park is? I've never been up there, but we'll have to try it one of these days! Isn't that what we always say? So, are you guys still planning on going up to SLC for Brit's wedding? Hope you're all doing well.

I love having that mountain so close. It's a real neat thing to do with family and even yourself. The weather was delightful this weekend, wasn't it?
