Beautiful Conference Weekend

What a beautiful weekend! General Conference was inspiring, the weather was gorgeous (to me anyway) and we had some fun!

Saturday's weather was totally cloudy and rainy, I loved it! It's probably a good thing I love rain since we'll be moving to Washington state when the house sells.

Sunday's weather started of a little rainy but cleared for awhile to beautiful blue skies. My original plan was to go up the canyon on Saturday but because of the awesome rainy weather we postponed it to Sunday.

We're about a 7 minute drive to the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon and this spot is about 5 minutes up the canyon. So it wasn't a long drive at all.

I wanted to take my really nice camera, but I knew I'd be helping the girls over rocks and other bumpy terrain which means they would've gotten clocked in the head several times, so I just took our dinky little point-and-shoot camera. Which I've discovered from this trip has a permanent blurred spot. I guess we'll need a new one.

So here are some of the pictures I took. The girls absolutely loved it once they got use to the bumpy ground. We got out of the car and Eden was terrified of walking. She was so worried she was going to trip. But by the end of our little hike the girls were running around.

Amanda: Mom, do I need to worry about this thing in front of me?

Amanda: Come on Mom, quit taking so many pictures and just walk.

Ashley: See my pretty leaf!
Eden: I have one too.
Amanda: I want one!

Ashley: YAY!
Eden: Too much effort, I'll just drop one leaf.
Amanda: What am I looking for?

If you look closely you can see snow on that mountain top!

Ashley: Come on, let's just go, Mom's taking too long with the pictures.
Eden: I got her keys out of her pocket during the last picture so let's go to the car.
Amanda: Can I drive?

It's so beautiful there! I really like that last picture too--you should blow it up bigger and put it somewhere:).
