Fall is Here!!

Ollie, Tracie, Charlie and I went on a GREAT hike on Saturday up to Lake Blanche in the Wasatch Mountains. The trail is just west of the city in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Oliver definitely had the best seat in the house!

The boys talked about grizzly bears and sasquatches...

while the girls talked about rheumatoid arthritis and Heroes Season 4...

The fall colors were already pretty intense!

Lake Blanche just below Sundial Peak. What a great spot for lunch!

Charlie packed so much great food! Thank you so much!

Tracie and Oliver relax after the journey to the top.

I truly think Ollie is going to be a mountaineer!


We were all excited to be hiking down slope on the way back to the car! Ollie even managed to sneak in a little nap.

Ollie and mom uploading some photos to the blog.

His first experience with peas proved that they not only smelled horrible, but they nearly made him gag as well.

They are loads of fun to smear on the face though!

Thanks Aunt Amy for the sweet backpack, Good night!

a great week

Oliver loves his bath time

Yesterday was a sad day as Grammie Trish said her goodbyes. Oliver even had a crying fit as she got out of the car at the airport. We had a lot of fun this past week with Bob and Trish and hopefully gave them a good taste of SLC. The weather cooperated nicely which added to the appeal of the city. It has been a wonderful Summer full of visitors and although we are sad to see it go, the leaves are beginning to change and Fall is welcome in our household. Who is coming to visit for ski season??!!

Indian Summer

Ollie wasn't sure what to think of the little goats, he got his toes nibbled a bit by one!

Zipline at the Olympic ski park

I'm bringing my camera up on the zip next time!

Sunny day at the State Capitol

Memory Grove Park

It's been a busy 3 days since grammie Trish and grandpa Bob arrived. We've done lot's of sight seeing in the area. Oliver had a good time today with his grandparents while his mom and dad were at work. He was a good boy. :)
Many more pictures to come...
