One of our family's favorite Sunday afternoon past times is to go up to Silver Lake at Brighton ski resort. The kids love to look for animals to feed and we love that the temperature is so much cooler up there! Paige had the idea to go up after church one Sunday and we invited our friends, David and Heather Doman, to come with us. We have known them since we moved in, but never gotten together. It was so fun to get to know them. Later that week, we got an email from Steve's brother inviting us there for a picnic the following Sunday. Of course, it didn't take much convincing to go up again! (Just a lot more bug spray!!)
While the girls and I went around the lake with our cousins. Little Bode was able to stay back with daddy and his Aunties to be snuggled. No one seemed to mind taking a turn to hold him! Especially Aunt Valerie, who just kept saying, "Brady is going to have so much fun with him when he gets home!" (Just over 4 months left!!)
Paige and Claire had a great time with Paige's "twin cousin" Katherine and the "big girls", Victoria, Tavia and Tessa. They climbed up giant rocks and hid bread crumbs in squirrel holes.
We totally scored on our first trip and were able to find 2 sets of baby ducks for the girls to feed stale hot dogs buns to. However, we couldn't find them the following week. But look how cute they were!
