A Gray and Beautiful Summer Day in August

One Sunday in August, we went for a drive up Provo Canyon. Our first stop was the ever-beautiful Bridal Veil Falls. There was a break in the rain when we first started up the trail, but I was glad we came prepared with rain gear for everyone because on the way back to the car, it POURED. And poured, and poured and poured.

This is when Evan was obsessed with the binoculars Pata Jones had given him.

It was something cool, I'm sure.

They could not pass up an opportunity to throw rocks in the water.

It was a fun little hike. Even in the rain. Or, with the boys having so much fun, I should say especially in the rain.

We then headed up the Canyon and began the drive around the Alpine Loop. The next stop was Sundance. We thought about taking a ride on the ski lifts, but two things stopped us: the thought of being on those lifts in the pouring rain, and the fact that the kids would probably be scared to death the entire ride.

We did enjoy checking out the fish, walking around, and the use of Sundance's pristine bathrooms, however.

Next stop: Cascade Springs--an area full of beautiful natural springs with trails to walk around them on. The boys had a blast on our little outdoor journey, and we tired them out plenty for a nice nap for the drive home.
