We just returned from an eventful week in Utah for the Hatch (Traci's) family reunion. It was fun to see everyone, play games, eat food, and spend quality time with Grandma. I always think that it would be crazy, and so cool, to look around as the matron of the family and see dozens of kids running around, your grandkids with families of their own, and realize that you created that. Families are such a wonderful thing.
One day we hiked up to the timpanogos caves. I'd never been there before and it was pretty cool. It's a steep 1.5 mile climb to the entrance. Kaden ran part way, drug his feet part way, and took his turn on everyone's back. I carried chubby Beckham the whole way up and through the caves. He's always so happy riding in the wrap. He slept through the whole cave which was perfect. Kaden was so excited to be in the cave, going through tunnels and exploring something so foreign. On the way down I carried him on my back most of the way because he was being so whiny and clingy, the little stinker. After our hike we had a picnic in the park. The weather couldn't have been more beautiful.
