Independence Weekend

We had a GREAT 4th of July weekend. Both Joe and I had Friday off so it was a nice three-day weekend.

We started off with a hike to Stewart Falls on Friday. We have this book of fun family things to do in Utah and it said all this stuff about the hike being kid-friendly. Ha. Ha. Ha. It was an exhausting hike! Sai did the whole thing by himself — very impressive! Jay made it there but refused to walk back so Joe and I took turns carrying him. Sophie got to ride in the back pack the whole way even catching some Zs. At least it was a little overcast and not blazing hot the whole time. But my legs three days later are still sore!

Joe and the kids.

The boys and me. Yes, we look so happy and excited.

Sophie would not keep her head under her shade. Even when she fell asleep she kept her head out.

Sai in front of the big fall. We were so tired we didn’t walk down to the bottom of the falls to feel the cool water. We didn’t want to have to walk back up that much more!

On the 4th both of our families had parties. But we decided to only go to one. So we went to Joe’s family’s festivities. We had food, kids played, and watched fireworks.

    Looks like a fun hike. It’s so pretty up there. I can’t believe how much Sophie looks like you when you were little.
