An unexpected trip

A sad occasion took us to St. George this weekend. Our friends lost their 13 year old son and we felt it was important to be there to support them. We miss you BH.   After the service and luncheon we decided to go to Snow Canyon.  This is us below the names on Pioneer Names trail.image

This is on Petrified Dunes.

We stopped at the petting zoo in Scipio on the way home so the kids could see the camel.image

St. George is quickly becoming a favorite spot for our children. They might love it as much as I do. The funeral gave us a chance to connect with friends, talk about priorities and spend time together as a family. I could feel God’s love as we heard stories and shared memories about BH, and remembered what a great kid he was. I could also feel His love as I took the time to quietly gaze on the magnificence of his creations, and know that He did all of this for us.

Trifecta part 1- iFly

The Christmas experience for my boys was to go to Ogden to do indoor skydiving, indoor surfing and bouldering.  Yesterday I took them to iFly to start their Christmas experience.  This is their second run.

Trifecta part 2- Flowrider

The Flowrider was the second part of their Christmas gift.  Jaxon tried the surfing, but he preferred the boogie board.  He did a barrel roll three times and rode it like a kneeboard.

Mason did really well on the surf board.  I thought he was going to wipe out here, but he pulled it out.

I was able to join the boys for the Flowrider, and it was a blast.  It was a lot harder than I expected, but I managed to pull off an accidental 180.  Getting back was the hard part.

Trifecta part 3- iRock

We finished at iRock with some bouldering.  The boys are monkeys.

We finished with nachos at Costa Vida, then hit the Lego store and Build-A-Bear at the Fashion Place mall.  We were all tired and sore when it was all over, but as Mason put it- “This is the best Christmas present ever!”  And that makes it all worth it.

Last Saturday I took my daughter to Momentum in Lehi for her Christmas present. I knew she would be good at bouldering.. We climbed until our hands were too sore to continue.image

Winter ride

I took my boys and dogs for a winter ride this morning. We found this frozen section.IMG_2603

I rode across some frozen sections. This one didn’t hold me, so I kept pedaling to get back to the dirt before I got wet.
