Saturday Evening Getaway

 

Saturday morning Roger worked in the yard for several hours and I worked in the house. After all of our hard work, Roger came up with the fabulous idea of going to our nearest mountain (Kelly Canyon about 50 minutes away) and barbecuing. So, we packed up and headed out. It was so beautiful and refreshing to be in the mountains. After our wonderful barbecue that Roger put on, steak for mom and dad and hot dogs for the kids, we hiked around and let Malachi lead the way.

 

The kids, also, enjoyed our getaway. They had a lot of fun just running around and doing all the things that kids like doing, like getting dirty. Malachi's favorite thing was to climb on rocks and throw rocks (I think that throwing things is a natural instinct for boys).

 

We told Malachi not to go up this steep trail, so what does he do? He went up the trail. Roger and I both told him to come down, but he just pretended like he couldn't hear us. Finally, Roger yelled up to Malachi, "Don't let the bears eat you." The next thing we know, Malachi is running back down the trail.

Your kids are so cute. I can't believe that Malachi is already 5 yrs old. We loved the picture of your two girls holding hands. They are so cute. Thanks for sharing your family with us.

Your outting looked way fun. The pictures are darling. How did you get four in a box like that? Isn't it funny how as soon as kids turn five they think they are the smartest people in the world, and can do whatever they want, and never get hurt. My five year old is going through the back-talking phase, not a good phase. They are fun, but trying to hard to be independent!

Looks like fun. It is exciting to have summer here to be able to enjoy the great outdoors!
