Sundance Sundays, going strong!

Sundance, as you may already know, is like our home away from home.  It's about 15 minutes away from our house so it's super easy for us to jump in the car and go.  And something about getting up in the mountains and in the mountain air is really refreshing.  

Sometimes we go up to ride bikes, sometimes we go up to ride the lift, and sometimes we go up just to sit by the pond and drink root beer and eat their suckers...or in my case a cookie as big as your head.

 The girls found a hill to roll down.
I'm petty sure we weren't allowed in the area...but the girls were able to sneak in some fun before anyone told us to leave.

 My mom has been joining us lately and we've been loving it!

I couple of weeks ago I took Haley and Morgan out on the trails.  This was Haley's second time and Morgan's first.  Haley did great and is getting a little more comfortable...Morgan however, is another story.  Poor thing was about in tears the whole way down.  Her hands are kinda small still to work the breaks very well, and since it's all down hill she was having quite a bit of trouble.  It took us while, but we made it down all in one piece!  Next time we'll keep her on the flats trails!

Nachos at Bear Claw makes everything better!

Fall is going strong here in Utah!
The mountains have already peaked with the Fall colors and it always takes my breath away!
I love this time of, crisp mornings and evenings, but still warm in the day...Love it!
Get out and enjoy those colors...they're going fast!

Labor Day Weekend

We kicked off Labor Day weekend with the Ft. Bridger Mountain Man Rendezvous on Saturday.  We've been going for a few years now, so it has become a bit of a tradition for the girls to get dressed up in pre 1840 garb and really embrace the whole experience!  And just like years before Morgan stayed for the weekend with our friends (their daughter and Morgan are little besties).  It's always so hard to say goodbye to her and I always worry if she's warm enough at night...but she always has a ball and loves every minute of it!
 Aren't these girls darling?  And pretty authentic too, huh...(minus Rory's tennies of course).

Sunday we kept with our normal routine of Sundance Sundays.  This time we packed a picnic dinner and stayed through the evening to watch the outdoor band play.  And it just so happened that a few of our neighbors had the same idea so the girls played all evening, running around the field with their friends.  And I must say...the evenings are getting a bit chillier...Fall is definitely in the air!

Because we didn't get enough of Sundance on Sunday, we decided to go up again Monday to do some mountain biking.  Haley was excited to give it go, so my dad and I took her out on the trails.
Three generations!

Haley is riding my old mountain bike...she loves it!  And I'm happy to report that she had a good time riding as well.  She only had one big spill into the bushes...not too bad.  I'm hoping next weekend we can get both Haley and Morgan out there!

That evening for Labor Day we had a fabulous BBQ at my parents house.  And later that evening our little Morgan came home...happy and very, very dirty!

Then on Tuesday (I know it's not the weekend anymore...but whatever) the cross season started!  So that evening (even though he doesn't have a cross bike and had to ride his mountain bike) Ryan raced.  And it wouldn't have been complete without Taco Tuesday right after! 

We're hanging on to summer for as long as possible!!
Happy Weekend ya'll!
