The big 10!!

Yesterday Tyler and I celebrated our ten year anniversary!! We celebrated it the night of the 22nd because Tyler and his brothers and dad were leaving early this morning to head out on a backpacking trip. We went to Midway, UT and spent the night in the Blue Boar Inn bed and breakfast. We bought a package that included a ride in a hot air balloon the next morning. We also rented scooters from the hotel. It was a fun relaxing day. Although tiring, to have to be up at 5 to do the hot air balloon, but it was fun and worth it!

Capitol Reef

We spent last weekend in central Utah, for what you may ask? For the Capitol Reef Classic Cycling Race of course. It consisted of a time trial, circut race, and a road race. He did quite well in the first two and through a series of unfortunate events he didn't do so well in the road race, therefore ending up tenth overall. But he really enjoyed the two days of racing. The boys and I hung out at the hotel and Holden played with our friends three girls that had come as well. On Saturday we had to check out of the hotel before they would be done so we drove the kids into Capitol Reef Park and looked at Petroglyhs and went and made sandwiches to eat. Holden had fun playing with the girls and Caleb is a pretty good traveler wherever we go so it all worked out.

Follow the Drinking Gord

Last Saturday Tyler competed in the Porcupine Hill Climb. It is a 14 mile race up Big Cottonwood Canyon to Brighton Ski Resort. He got second place in his category. Too bad we aren't drinkers because he could have had his "trophy" filled with beer. They probably would have filled it with his favorite Dr. Pepper but he didn't ask--of course!!

Lisa Falls

Believe it or not but a mere ten minutes away from our house is a beautiful waterfall. Tyler went on a hike with the YM the week before and wanted to take us there. He said he is constantly amazed at all the new things there are to discover in Utah.

The hike up was a little crazy with lots of rocks to climb over
Tyler being the awesome dad he is carried Caleb up on his back

But the view was worth it!

Tyler and Holden hiked up to the falls that are even higher up
