Up the canyon

My family lives in a gorgeous area of Utah. Our town is nestled on the foothills of the mountains in the corner of the valley, just minutes from the mouth of the canyon. This makes it really easy for us to enjoy take advantage of everything the mountains have to offer--especially during the summer. While Matt and I were in town, we headed up the canyon on a stormy/sunny afternoon (Utah weather is bipolar like that) for some laid-back kayaking at the reservoir. 
As evidence of the bipolar weather--the below pictures were taken just five minutes apart. Sunny:
Crazy, right? We had a few good hours of play under our belts by the time the rain and thunder started so we went home and came back another night to make a campfire. The boys found a mini "Pride Rock" while gathering sticks for the fire, hence the lion shot below.
Summer just wouldn't be complete without s'mores in the canyon!
Watching the babies toast their marshmallows was my favorite. Pretty sure Gabey Baby caught his marshmallow on fire on at least eleven different occasions. So cute.


  1. Aww Ash you and your family are so adorable! And you're lucky to live near such a beautiful area! Hope the little guy is treating ya well :)

  2. i LOVE that canyon too!! nothing compares! that's awesome you got to go up there on your visit here.

  3. So how far along are you? And your due date? Cuz....from your pics you look about 20 weeks;) So exciting!!

  4. Kami- I'm 36 weeks tomorrow, but I was 33 in these pictures. I'm a bit behind in blogging these days... and always :)

  5. I'm pretty sure that if the marshmallow doesn't catch on fire then it couldn't possibly be done yet. That's my preference at least.

  6. You are such a good blogger. These pictures are gorgeous! I miss those Utah mountains like crazy! You were smart to get up there and get a good dose of the outdoors (and s'mores!) while you were visiting. Love it!

  7. I agree with April. You guys have lots of fun together as a fam. That lake was gorgeous and perfect for kayaking.
