Our two oldest grandkids flew out to visit without their parents, a first for us.
We fished, hiked, checked out dinosaur bones, and visited the zoo with cousins. The bird show at the zoo was impressive, with raptors swooping in right over our heads. Afterward, the cousins had their picture taken with a bald eagle.
On the drive back from a fishing expedition, Daisy enjoyed bonding with her boy.
A few weeks later, our son was back with his whole family. The cousins posed on a bridge.
A hike in Albion Basin, near Alta Ski Resort, is a family favorite.
The views and wildflowers are great.
There are rocks to climb.
Some of the rocks have fossils.
For an added treat, a little patch of snow remained for a short glissade.
We also had a special addition in June. On a trip to visit the newest family member, we caught both our son and his daughter wearing Mona Lisa smiles.
