Seriously......mid August already? With school starting in just two weeks, we're going to squeeze out every little bit that's left.
A few months ago, I was soooooo excited for Fall.....but now I must admit I'm a little sad it's going by so fast :(
Until next time......see you soon :)

We grabbed our beach stuff and snuck away for a few hours to Pineview Dam.
I thought to myself.......why in the world don't we do this more often?
As a kid, I spent so many summers at this reservoir, camping, boating, fishing and swimming. This place will always remind me of my dad and fishing in my aunt and uncles boat. Good times.......
See you soon! Hope you had a fabulous weekend :)

It's been awhile since we hiked up Waterfall Canyon. I didn't realize what a difference 15 years would make....hahaha! Maybe I need to increase that incline on the treadmill :)
Ogden is just gorgeous and even though the waterfall isn't HUGE, the hike up is so fun. It's easy in some spots and a little challenging in others.
The hike is around 1.3 miles, they say. We would all swear it was longer than that.
I'm itching to go again......my sister and niece told me to count them out----but I think our brother in law will join us again. So pretty----and I can't wait to snap more photos come Fall.
Hope you're having a great day----even though it's Monday :)

Tuesdays are one of our favorite days around here. Probably because it's my day off and we usually try to do something fun.
This time we decided to paint a few pet rocks. Just a few lady bugs and some type of green unknown bug. I think that one is my favorite :)
I remember making tons of pet rocks when I was a kid. Sometimes it's good to just keep it simple and bring back some of those lazy day kid crafts.
Hope you're having a great week!
