A Family Hike

Daniel's Summit Lodge makes a good place to meet up with our Salt Lake kids and grandkids for a Sunday afternoon hike. 
The visiting is fun.
Riding on Papa's shoulders is always interesting.
 There are plenty of insects to be found,
Some of us needed a walking stick.
Then there's rock chunking, with plenty of opportunity to get good and muddy.
And when the exploring's over, there's a tailgate picnic,
and some good relaxation time.
Ah, this is the life!


  1. Such a great family post Janie. I can't think of any way better than to be together in all that glorious scenery. Lots of good mud to play in too ;)

    Wishing you a great day,

  2. This looks like it was a wonderful get-together. Your grandchildren are sure cute, but I expect you already know that.

  3. It looks like a great time was had by everybody.

  4. Your grandkids are the cutest ever! All these photos are keepers!

  5. A wonderful family outing indeed. A hike with the grandkids followed by a picnic. Life is good!!!

  6. Janie, What great Grandkid pics - such personality. That little one has sure grown - I see he's quite the ham. Glad your granddaughter is a tomboy who likes bugs and mud! Looks like a gorgeous day for a hike with the little ones.

  7. Looks like a great and wholesome time was had by all. Especially the hammy little guy in the chair, at the end!

    Thanks for taking us along.

  9. Precious are those faces and memories.
    Janie, you and Steve have a beautiful family.

  10. What a wonderful place to hike. I love all the big shady hats - a necessity, no doubt. It's fun to meet up with family, isn't it?

  11. Oh my, your grands are growing! What a lovely family you have! Looks like it was a beautiful, fun-filled day.


  12. What a lovely way to spend time with your family.
