I was so happy to be in the room when my new niece came into this world.
It is such a great feeling watching the miracle of birth.
She is so beautiful! Yvonne decided a few months before that she was going to meet her daughter early. She was right. After a walk around Hoogle Zoo on Prestyn's birthday Makenna was born two days later. (a month before her due date)
It is always fun for the kids to meet there new cousins.
We decided for day 3 we would take all the kids on the Riverside Walk. Witch is a paved 2 mile walk before the Narrows Trail.
The beginning of the Narrows Trail.
Here is the end of the paved trail.
We started dividing up and find our walking sticks. Britney and Edris said they would stay with there kids so that their husbands, Scott, Riley, Jason, Tyree and me could go adventure on the Narrows Trail.
The Narrows is rated a strenuous hike which is 9.4 miles round trip.
You spent most of your time in the river.
As you can see in this picture there where some very deep stops along the way.
(Look at the waterlines on our shirts)
This picture is looking down stream.
This is about 2 or so miles in. It was the first time we stopped and dare take out our cameras.
These two pictures are looking up stream.
Note the waterline on Mark. He is about 6' 4", I was swimming in some places to say the least.
We were having so much fun we decided to keep on going.
This is where we turned around.
We all hiked just above this waterfall.
Here is an example of how we got done from the waterfall.
We re-energized here and decided we better turn around and get back the ladies with the crazies.
We figured we did over half the trail so probably 6 or so miles round trip.
Here is another picture of the waterfall as we were saying good bye.Here is the trail if we would have kept going.After we meet up with others we decided to take the kids to a splash pad in Laverkin.
This was James' kind of fun.
The bathing beauties.
Ainsley and Letley
Riley and Jason felt there time would be best spent taking a nap.
Grady and Andrew
The parents with Britney behind the camera.
Oh yeah, note the In and Out burger cups.
An air conditioned restaurant was what we needed for lunch.
Well I decided that while I was working on myfamily.com web page starting at the beginning of our family, I should keep the present documented too. I'm hoping to work on both sites so keep checking back. The myfamily website takes a little longer because I have to scan the pictures in. (I must be old....I have pictures from 35mm film..........hahaha!)
