Urban Wilderness Exploration: City Creek Canyon: Part Deux

 
 Today we enjoyed City Creek Canyon. This was our second time here.  We took the paved road this time to see what it had to offer.
 Great friends...

 A nice hike...
 Water play...



 Water plant discussion...

 Sticks as swords...




 And sticks as fishing poles...

 Snack time...
 Hugs for friends...
 "tall tall grass" exploration...


 Hugs for trees...
 Locusts!

 Thomas was very into the locust...




 So proud of his insect find!
 Back to the water for a bit more fun...

 Joy and cuteness all around!

 Conversation...
 

 And a hike home with 3 sleeping toddlers and two laughing brothers
 It was a morning well spent!
Happy exploring!

Sandbox

 
 David built a sandbox...

Layton Splash Pad

 We met up with our good friends to play at the Layton Splash pad.  Tons of fun!


Picnicking...

 Playing...







 Bouncy ball fun...
 Otto is so fun!






 They were practicing for the air show this weekend.  It was incredible and crazy loud! Very cool to watch.  They only do the show every 5 years so we will try to go in 5.  Rowan was not fond of the sound.


 Jack is such a great friend...


 Rowan went down the slide with Ruby but he didn't enjoy it.


 Everyone came to his rescue...


 Best buddies...
 Yay summer!

It's a great life....
