Provo River Trail

Scott has returned and so has the Fancy Nancy.  Some claim that I'm not allowed to blog while the hubster is away.  Really?  Was I that depressing?  I like to call it introspective.  In the meantime, as things have been settling back into a routine, a lot has been happening around here.  I won't go into all the boring details but I will highlight a super fun thing we did last Saturday--we rode our bikes up Provo Canyon.  I felt so organic and earthy.

With Emma on Scott's bike,

me with Grace in tow on the beach cruiser,


and Ben & Sarah each powering it up by themselves (oops no photo proof),

we made it almost 5 miles (the number gets bigger every time I talk about it) from the mouth of the canyon to Vivian Park.

Excepting the pit toilets, Vivian Park was a perfect resting point before returning back down the mountain.  

Ben with a gorgeous backdrop.  


Grace doing what she does best, finding trouble.  

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls on the way back to play in some super frigid water.  Scott's new job as an intern for the city of Sandy's Public Utilities department has brought him a new found understanding of where this beautiful run off goes.  He wasn't pleased when he saw dogs playing it.   Our incredibly clean humans are okay to play in it.






If you come to visit us, likely you will be offered the chance to join us on this awesome excursion.  Just be ready.

I guess I have cut my hair! It's an a-line bob. If I could lose a chin or two, I'd do a close-up. :) We need to hook up soon.
