Labor Day hike and trip to the cabin!

Labor Day was glorious. We spend the weekend up in Bountiful with my folks and had the most wonderful time. Monday morning we woke up early and went hiking with our little family up Mueller Park Canyon. The kids are getting so good at trucking it in the mountains. 

Love this picture of Dan. 

Eli climbs up. 

Sammy wants to follow, like always. 

My boys in the woods. 

Finn did a good job on the mountain too.

Sweet Sammy. 

Little hiking family. 

Eli and I shoot the breeze.

Now on the to cabin! My dad's cabin is up near Huntsville. It is a magical place and my kids LOVE it. 

Sammy on an ATV. He loves this thing. 

We played a lot of horseshoes!

I was not very good at them. 

Daddy takes the guys around on the tractor. 

I set Sammy up on a rock and took a lot of pics. No apologies. 

Greg plays the harmonica. 

Finn listens. 

Margaret cooked up the yummiest lunch. 

Utah State Fair 2013

It's a yearly affair, and one we don't ever ever miss. It's my favorite fall event. I can't really explain it. I've gone pretty much every year ever. Our kids have never missed a year. I want to keep it that way. 

It was pouring down rain when we arrived at the fair. That is why I looked like a drown rat in most of the pictures. 

Eli got up close with a milking cow. He loved it. 

Sammy pets the giant pumpkin. 

Sammy and Eli pet a small bunny. 

Sammy was a little cautious. 

Eli road the roller coaster. He was in heaven. This kid doesn't know what caution means. 

I love this one. 

Dan and Eli took a spin on the bumper cars. Dan is brave. 

I braved it with Eli in the "fun house". It was gross the sweat of a thousand children lingered on every surface.
