Sept-Oct 2017 Randomness

We hiked all six (ish) miles of Adams Canyon with all six of us and the two dogs.  There is no way we would have made it without our friends, their kids encouraging ours, and us taking turns carrying Pele down the last .5 mile stretch of hot sand. 

Here are our beautiful girls on their way to church.  

Jeremy and I made it to the BYU - Utah football game in Provo and had a blast.  I think the BYU season ticket holders were impressed with us not bashing the Y, but just having a good time.  
Jeremy and Gregg finished the Huntsville half marathon, despite both of them having some pretty messed up hamstrings from a previous Lake Powell trip boating incident. 

The whole Huntington clan made it to This is the Place Heritage Park for Grandma and Grandpa's anniversary.  

Bear and I had a rare morning to ourselves and decided to go for a hike and visit the Dinosaur Park.

Sorensen Family Pics 2017

 Well, about four years from the last round of family pics, there are now four more grandkids, and one on the way.  It was about time. Jon and Melissa really make all of us look good with their amazing photography skills.

 So the only reason I look slightly in pain in both of these is because there's something about having all of my siblings together that makes me laugh.  A lot.  And I couldn't stop.  But I was trying.

Beginning of Summer in Utah

 Part of getting settled in for us involved checking out some of the local hikes.  Here we are close to Snowbasin, on the Green Pond Trail.  

The kids were pretty excited that the yard came with a whole bunch of sand to play in.  Kathryn was the first burial.   

I took the crew up Beus Canyon.  Anytime we can find water we'll call it a win.   

It's nice that we're close enough to have my dad stop by every now and then for lunch in between trips and meetings.   

He keeps growing and loves being a part of everything.   

 We soon found another family was occupying our residence.  There were six baby skunks living under our shed.  They were adorable to watch, but since they do get bigger, we enlisted the help of our neighbor to trap them.  

We had more than just skunks visiting us.  

We got the girls to Lagoon a few times and they loved it.   

 We put the girls to work picking the cherries out of the tree.  Too bad I don't make anything with cherries, but they loved to eat them.  

 Kathryn had quite the growing experiences this summer.  The dentist had to pull out two of her teeth to let more grow in, and she did get new glasses after she had her eye surgery in July.  Her doctor corrected a lot of her eye deviation, and between that and the new glasses her eyesight has significantly improved.  We are so excited for her!

 There is a small farm up in Eden that lets you pet and feed some of the sheep, pigs, kittens, and chickens.  We even got to ride a horse.
