To the Woods

Monday night we decided to head up the canyon for a BBQ picnic. We used to do this all of the time when we lived close to Provo Canyon and it was always a lot of fun. Plus who doesn't want to get out of the heat? I really enjoy not having to cook in the kitchen in the summer! Thanks to Randy we often eat off of the grill, and it is always better than kitchen food! We headed up Santaquin Canyon which is a pretty canyon. There is a lot of foliage and a small river and a VERY narrow road. More narrow than AF canyon has ever been. Most of the road is broken and has a lot of falling rock. We had a good laugh because at one point there is a sign that says "one lane over bridge" and we thought the whole road has been one lane why bother with a sign here? LOL We found a place that was very shady with a fire pit and got to cooking the burgers.




Kylie just got home from girls camp last Friday so she sat there listening to the tunes on her MP3 cause she had enough outdoors last week!!! Dallin was busy finding wood for the fire and rolling rocks down the mountain and Ciara.... well she just couldn't sit still or even stay in an area for longer than 30 seconds. She wanted to run down the road and up the mountain and it was all great fun. Every time she fell she got dirtier and dirtier. And we are talking BLACK dirty, cause the dirt was black. She thought it was great fun! I took her for a little walk and a caterpillar ran out right in front of her and she started laughing and chased it until she caught it. It was a really fuzzy caterpillar and it probably tickled her hand cause she even tried putting it up against her nose to tickle it! We had to throw it into some bushes so the poor thing wouldn't get squished to death! We had a really great dinner but I'm not so sure I'm ready to take Ciara camping anytime soon now that she is so mobile and fears nothing!


It is hard to see, but she is holding her little caterpillar here.




Is this the face of trouble or what?!!!
