Long weekends are always very appreciated in our house. Mr. H had a lot to do, but we still were able to pack in some fun things. One of the highlights of the weekend was a morning hike we took up emigration canyon. Emigration canyon is the spot where the Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. It was so beautiful up there! The leaves were starting to change colors, and the weather was perfect. C loves being in the hiking back pack and was a good sport. The hike was about 3.5 miles round trip, and the destination was an old abandoned mine you had to look really close for. It was a little creepy, but really cool to see.

It was funny-as soon as we found the mine, all the old videos they showed me in elementary school on mine safety flooded back. My teachers should be proud as I remembered all the safety procedures. ha.
School starting has been difficult for me to adjust to. Mr. H has so much to do, and it is hard to not have him around to play with as much. But C is doing great, and we are spending a lot of time outside enjoying the last moments of summer.
