escape from the heat

For ever I've been wanting to take a trip to the cabin and get out of this 100º+ weather, but it seems like something is going on every weekend. So I was determined this weekend. Turned out Ryan had a lot to do this weekend and wasn't going to be able to go. I figured since he'd be working all weekend we wouldn't see him anyway so I might as well take the kids. So my mom and I drove up with the kids Friday afternoon (dad was going to come up a little later, and that turned out to be this morning).

Oh boy was it a breath of fresh air...literally! I forgot how sweet the air is up on the rim.
It was actually pretty nice having just mom and the kids there.
It POURED last night. The rain was so loud that it woke us in the middle of the night. Thank goodness the cabin is waterproof! (At least it's got that going for it)

Then this morning we took the kids on a hike up a little mountain. It was a little hard for the kids.
Mom helping the kids up the mountain.
Made it to the top!

We also went to the Pinedale cemetery. Here's Gwen in front of her great, great, grandma and grandpa's head stone.
After a Navajo Taco lunch with dad in the Pinedale barn, we drove over to SnowFlake. Here the babies in front of the Jesse N. Smith house. He's their great, great, great, great, great grandpa.
We also had to stop by the SnowFlake temple to let the kids see how pretty it is. And seriously we were so cold! It was like 56º! Then we drove home to the valley where it was a cool 87º.

Great weekend get away. Glad to be home.

What? You've been holding out on us? You are related to Pinedale people? So does that make you a cousin of George's?
