All in the Family

Sometimes we explore trails with kiddos instead of horses.
Around July 4th, we had the whole family in town.
With 8 kids ranging in age from 1 to 12, choosing an acceptable hike was a challenge, especially with daytime highs in the valley at over 100.
We chose a location up Big Cottonwood Canyon, near Guardsman Pass.  A shady trail at high altitude made for a pleasant activity.
The destination was Shadow Lake, where rock throwing and critter hunting were popular.
Baby Z had fun dipping her toes in the water.
One evening, we all went to a local rodeo.
Mostly, though, we just enjoyed each other's company.


  1. Making some great memories for the younger ones is what you were doing. They will remember the get together the rest of their lives.

  2. You have 8 grand babies! What a blessing to have everyone with you at once; I'm sure that isn't an easy feat. I'm sure you enjoyed every minute.
