Cascade Springs

We decided to take a short day-cation this week and rode up to Cascade Springs.  We took all the back roads and came home through American Fork canyon.  On our way home, we saw a mama moose and her baby just off the road!  Rob got a few pictures on his camera, but he hasn't downloaded them yet.  We also saw a few deer, and lots of squirrels and chipmunks!  
The kids all loved walking around on the path.  In fact, Ammon was upset that we were making him stop for even a picture!
 The kids set this one up all on their own!
Cascade Springs really is quite beautiful!

I've been horrible at taking pictures lately, but have a couple!  Summer is going well, and the kids are enjoying days spent out in the backyard, swimming, or just playing with friends!  Rob and I are getting a lot of projects done around the house, which has been good, even if we are probably the only ones who would notice what we've done! 

 Our nephew Alexander, who is about 2 1/2 weeks younger than Ammon, has been spending a lot of time with us this summer! 
They are a lot alike, including nap times!
We were able to go to the Syracuse City Heritage Days parade last week.  It was in the morning, but it was already pretty hot, and since we got there later than many, our seats were facing the sun!  But, the kids had  a blast catching candy and watching the parade! 

For the 4th of July, we were able to spend time with my family riding a four-wheeler and swimming in my parents backyard.  Did I think to take pictures?  No!  We did some fireworks in the front before it got dark, and the kids loved being with their cousins and family!
