Beautiful Fall

Today I took my kids up to Snowbasin Ski Resort for the day...It was sooooo beautiful.  Fall is my FAVORITE time of year-the crisp air, the sun, and of course, THE COLORS!!!  I actually FORGOT my camera and then I left my cell phone in the car and we were all ready at the top of the Gondola, so I couldn't just run back down-no matter how much in running shape I am (bwah hah hah).  My mom and I brought the kids' bikes and we let them ride around the little obstacle course for some time, then we went to the top of the mountain and went on a walk.  There is a very easy trail that even my baby could walk on without help.  He did the whole thing too!  We played on the rocks, threw rocks, peed on the rocks (Sporty had to go!) and just had a fantastic family moment.  We even got to see a wedding take place out on the patio-the bride was beautiful! 
The whole thing was orchestrated by my mom for the entire family to come-my brothers, sister, dad, etc.  However, Tad and his family all came down with the crud we all had last week, Ty went to Moab, Lyndi got a date, and my dad was called into work.  So it was Sandi, me and the kiddos.  It just dawned on me that you are probably wondering where Trevor was through this entire thing....He had baseball games and then he went to the Priesthood Session of conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  He always attends with his dad.  Here is a clip of one of the talks from the April 2010 session
So anyway, it was a pleasant day which will lead into a pleasant tomorrow when we get to watch conference on TV.  I love conference Sunday and listening to our Prophet speak.  Here is one of his talks.  President Thomas S. Monson is a very prolific speaker.  AMAZING!
I love my family!

Wow Lisa, I had no idea that you could pee on rocks :)

It sounds like such a great day. I remember when your parents had Lyndi. It's so weird that she can how time flies. It's fun catching up on what ya'll do for fun. You need some pictures on here :).

Anyways, I love the update. You guys seem to have SO much fun :) Creating memories are the best way to keep them close.
