Labor Day week

We went down to Southern Utah (hot) for Labor Day.  It was pleasant (hot) and the kids really enjoyed being with their cousins on both sides.  They went swimming a lot and some of us got to go through the Subway in Zion (or is it Zions ;)  )
Anyway, we had a wonderful time and look forward to more trips down there this coming winter.

ballooning May over Park City

I took Amber on a hot air balloon ride in May and finally uploaded it online... It was a blast.  At least when she wasn't scared, it was really fun.  I highly recommend it.

2 days, 2 posts, 2 much fun with the camera

We went climbing up AF today. And poor Scott was fine on the climb but fell out of his 'cubby' 18 inches off the ground. Landed on his head. A little bleeder, but not bad enough for stitches. Spence really climbed well, and we would have video to show of it if our SD card hadn't filled up on his GoPro. Next week, I guess. Well, here are some shots in the yard today.

on the step

What a beautiful weather day it was on Monday. Nice rain, sunny evening, flowers are out, tomatoes are growing, kids are enjoying the summer...

Back at the Ranch

It's been quite some time since we've blogged.  In fact, I think the whole blog world has slowed way down.  I think that means we are doing more real life-ing.  That's a very good thing.  But I thought I would share one moment.  We were sitting in the front room after a nice fast Sunday and we popped over to BYUTV on the ipod and watched an episode of the Story Trek.  The story we really enjoyed was the one with Harold Wise in Honeyville Utah, a 70-year-old rodeo roper.  We wish we could watch Harold as we head to the Western Stampede this week.

Well, Camille seems wide awake after the show
But these two weren't looking so lively...

Oh, did I mention that Amber kicked my butt on Friday as we attempted Crossfit.

Here was our workout...

3 Rounds for time:
400 Meter Run
21 Kettlebell Swings 53/35
12 Pull-ups

And here was the result
 --- yup, I ripped through the front leg of my shorts and I'm pretty sore.  Good job honey.  I'll just go back to my canyoneering and climbing ;)  They are easier on the apparel.

Boys... Scott was lying on the couch and said "Daddy, I think you need to take a picture of me with a funny face"  
Thanks Scott - you made my day

Give me your best stare - photo...  
my kids know that sometimes after FHE I pull out the camera for a group shot.  Well this time they got individuals, and they were great sports.  

congrats to Spence who got his braces off today!

quote of the day

"I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to me."
Scott to Seth

We're downstairs playing blocks... Scott goes over and get some blocks out of the bin and on his way back over to the tower, he says "Woah, my big brain almost pulled me over" as he catches his balance.
