Hiking Mount Olympus

Rick and Brig hiked Mount Olympus today. I am so proud of Brigham! He has really turned out to be an amazing mountain goat. He can  climb like his dad. The two left early and came back late. This is what Wikepedia says about Mount Olympus.

Mount Olympus in the U.S. state of Utah, is one of the most prominent and recognizable mountains viewable from practically every location in the Salt Lake Valley. Mount Olympus is not the tallest peak along the Wasatch Front, but its unusual form and location make it a popular hiking destination for locals. The mountain is situated immediately east of the center of the Salt Lake Valley (due east from Murray and Taylorsville). One distinctive feature of the mountain is its twin peaks, and other outcroppings, the highest of which is called "Summit Peak" and towers above the valley to an elevation of 9,026 feet (2,751 m). Thus, the peak looms about 4,800 feet (1,463 m) above the valley floor.

I love that these two make a big hike part of their summer fun together.

Family Pictures 2013

We were in Colorado Springs. Since we were there, I had to ask our favorite Colorado photographer to take some more pictures of our family. A few years ago, I started taking pictures of me with each child. It is a tradition that I really love. Thanks Joyana, it was so good to see you and your cuties again!

A Fancy Lunch

Cora invited me to a fancy lunch at La Caille. It is a really beautiful and expensive french restaurant. We got a slamming deal because we went with Cora's french class. She ate her first (and hopefully last escargot - sorry it is a slug in garlic - I don't get it). It was great to spend some special time with my 8th grade cutie!
