After enduring a LOOONNNNGGGG wet and cold spring, summer has finally arrived in Utah. We love to get out into our beautiful wilderness and camp as many weekends
before hunting season arrives as we can fit in.
We have been in a small group Bible study with five other couples for nearly five years now. Cleverly, our comedians gave our group the name, "With The Father," or, "WTF" for short. Ha ha.
Most of the group joined us about an hour south of our home town for a weekend of camping fun. And some scenery... sheesh!
Day one, we explored Bridal Veil Falls. Or some of us explored the falls and some of us stayed with the little ones and watched
the men them explore.
I didn't need to be convinced to hang out with this guy.
We looked up and watched these guys get smaller and smaller. Can you find four of my men in this picture?
I'm exaggerating. We had plenty of fun at the bottom.
Squirt and his buddy Bean. These two have so much fun together:
Back at camp, we enjoyed the fire, the food, and the fun of Father's Day.
We split up meal responsibilities between the families, and luckily, the Andersons volunteered for breakfast.
Yes, they are all ours!
Day two: we drove up another canyon to visit the Mt. Timpanogos Caves. The hike was about 1.5 miles each way and a gain of about 1100 feet of elevation. Sounds tough, but it was paved the entire way. The kids had no problem at all.
This is the stuff I want to spend our free time doing. These types of places are right at our fingertips out here and even when it is a little further out, the travel time has always proven worthwhile.
Weekends like these make me see clearly why God gave me boys.
