Visiting Grandma & Grandpa in the Mountains

The day after we got home from our Disneyland trip, we went up American Fork Canyon to visit Grandma and Grandpa at their camping site and have dinner together. It was a nice, relaxing evening after having been on the road for so long.

The kids played for a long time on this little hillside. They just ran up and down and up and down. Woo hoo! It's great to be a kid!

I enjoyed a little bit of gaming time. Also, notice how nice and neat this camping area is? Grandma always keeps her spot immaculate. It's like a little home away in the mountains.

Nathan is enjoying his relax time. He loves this chair and always wants to sit in it.

We roasted marshmallows, made smores, and then tried roasting starburst candies. They are actually quite tasty when you roast them just right. I perfected my technique and made a few for Jeremy too. After they are roasted, they end up a little crunchy on the outside and real soft and chewy on the inside. YUM!

What a little cheeser! Alexandra is starting to understand that you smile for pictures. She is so fun.

She finally gave in on Grandma's lap.

Nathan sat cozied up with me in front of the fire for awhile. I finally had to put him down, though, because he is sooooo wiggly.

We made a last-minute decision to allow the girls to sleep over with Grandma and Grandpa in the mountains. They were very excited to get to sleep in the trailer. The next morning they helped pack up and we picked them up at Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Grandma finally gave in too.

I always enjoy going up into the mountains. It's a relaxing place to be (except for the bugs). Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for inviting us. :)
