Our annual trip to Snowbird was a huge success. We had such a great time. We are so lucky to have such fantastic parents that give us this time to share with our family. Thank you so much Mom and Walt. We love you so much. We only wish you guys could come and enjoy it with us. We actually started our trip on Thursday afternoon. We got to Salt Lake late that night so we could get an early start on our day Friday. We had some shopping and errands to run as well as a little b-day party for Desirae that night. Saturday Gary took Spencer and Benjamin to the Dew Tour. It is an extreme sports show with a huge outdoor track that covers a big parking lot and the inside of Energy Solutions Arena. There is skateboarding, BMX, Motor bikes, and a couple others. The boys really wanted to see the Motor bike finals. However, when they got there the line for general admission was down the street and around the block. They decided not to stay and we headed to Snowbird a couple hours earlier than originally planned.

It is so beautiful up there. The air is clean and crisp, but not cold. It smells so good and feels even better. It is Oktoberfest time and that means bratwurst and sauerkraut. Yum, Yum. There is an alpine slide that the boys went down at least seven times. They jumped on the trampoline with the bungees so they got to do flips and stuff. There was a bounce house and a giant inflatable slide. Spencer was bummed that he was too small to ride the zip line but I was relieved. It was hard enough letting Spencer and Benjamin ride the ski-lift to the top of the slide without me. We went swimming a few times and went on a couple hikes. Spencer really got into taking pictures. On our second hike I let him use my camera and take whatever pictures he wanted. Some of them are fuzzy but some of them are fantastic. I love looking at things through his eyes with his perspective. I never would have thought to click some of them. Here is the slide show of just his photos...

The colors are just starting to change. They will be truly spectacular in a couple weeks. I can't wait. I love autumn. It is my favorite. We were only there for two and a half days but oh, what a fantasic way to jump-start this georgeous season.
