Sun Valley 2010

We took another wonderful trip to Sun Valley for the Utah Bar Convention this year. It is always so much fun to go there and hang out with some of our friends.Persy now has several little friends her age that go to the convention. This cute little boy is Theo.

Eating sushi with our friends the Millers and their three little girls. I often brought a separate meal for Persy when we ate at restaurants because of her peanut and tree nut allergies. She is such a picky eater that she rarely makes a fuss about not sharing my entree. I was pleased that she gave the edamame an adventurous taste though.

Sun Valley is beautiful in the summer!

Doughnut Falls

My awesome 11 year old niece has been visiting from Texas this month. She spent a couple of days at our house and then we hung out again in St. George. Texas sounds like a great place, but it does lack mountains so we had to get out for a little hike together. (Actually the hike was a littler longer than planned because as the fearless leader I got us lost and we ended up turning a one hour hike into 3 1/2 hours. Whoops!) I'd love to do more hiking before it gets cold again. What are your favorite Utah hikes to do with children?
Dang, she hasn't even left for home yet and I'm already missing her. She was so helpful with Persy too!

Hidden Falls

We're trying to get some good hikes in this summer. We searched for Hidden Falls up Big Cottonwood, but I'm not sure that we actually found it. Oh well, it was a perfect morning just the same exploring with my friend Megan and her two kiddies. I love living so close to the mountains.
