For family night we decided to seek out some cooler weather so we headed up the canyon with our friends the Thompson's. We brought along hot dogs and marshmallows to roast and make s'mores. It felt so nice in the cooler air. We had such a good relaxing time. The Thompson's live behind us and have become such dear friends to us. It is so fun to have someone so close to hang out with. Our favorite is to put the kids to bed then meet up at one of our homes to play games, watch a movie, or have dessert. I have ALWAYS wanted to have a next door neighbor that we can hang with and now we have it...what a blessing (especially when one of us needs to borrow an egg, LOL)!
I have been inspired by one of my new blogging friends Bekki to be more creative with my photo taking skills. I wish you could all visit her blog (sorry it is private now) because she takes such awesome pictures!!! So I tried to be creative while taking pictures up the canyon... Here is my attempt.
We really take for granted our wonderful canyon...we literally live one minute from the entrance to the canyon and we hardly ever go up there. We even have a season pass to go up there without the fee and still we do not take advantage of it. This is definitely something that we need to work on.
Faze loves to pose, he caulks his head to the side like this and says "cheeeese"
I love this picture, for those of you that know Faze, he can get into all sorts of trouble. This pic looks like he is the most innocent child around. And just look at those baby blues.
How many marshmallow can you fit in your mouth?
The kids mistakenly wore flip-flops... look at those FILTHY feet!
