Cecret Lake

I don't want to scare you but today is August 17.

Which means we are already over 1/2 through the month...

Which means we are fast approaching the end of summer...

Which means the last place I want to be is indoors in a dull climate controlled environment.

I want to enjoy the sun, sky, warm breezes, and the green as much as possible. Last week Jeff and I went on a mid-week date to see the wildflowers in Little Cottonwood Canyon. They were beau-ti-ful! They are going to be strong for the next week or two, and we will have to drive up again and bring Erik/Claire/Megan.

We didn't do the hike but it is a family friendly trail.

My boyfriend. For some reason his braces make me feel young too. (They come off in November.)

Just on the drive up I counted 15+ types of wildflowers from the car.

Pony ride

Last month my parents called up a friend and asked if they could bring their grandchildren over to ride his pony. He said he was just leaving but they were welcome to saddle up Sugar and borrow her for the day. Having a pony for a day was a little bit of heaven for the kids. (And Sugar was kind enough to tolerate them too.)

Megan was convinced they really could be best friends.
