Timpanogos Cave

Today we went and hiked to Mt. Timpanogos and went into the caves. Eli did pretty good hiking up the trail but Stewart did have to carry him a lot of the way. Eli took many breaks to rest his muscles and get drinks. Here is a picture of one of those breaks. I think it's cute how he's adjusting his glasses.
Stewart thought it was funny how this sign said "restroom . Last chance" If you click on the picture and enlarge it you'll notice the face Eli's making. That's his worried face.

This was one of those outings that after you are done you wonder why you did it. Eli was so tired and ornery after it was all over it makes you wonder why you try and do these fun things. At dinner Eli spilled his spaghetti o's and also pulled out all the toilet paper of this huge pack that I just got. I was ready for him to go to sleep at 7:30 but he got himself so wired that he didn't fall asleep until 10. I was tired too and ornery myself.

So the day started out well but did end on a sour note. I guess I just need to go to bed and sing primary songs tomorrow and I'll feel better!

You seem like great parents. Will you take my kids on a hike?

I hear you on the "fun things oneryness". You wonder why you bother. When you could have just stayed at home and watched Aladdin for the 37 millionth time and had peace.

Ahem. You made it all the way to American Fork and didn't call us? Hmmmm.

We took all of you kids hiking up Timpanogos...once. It was a killer hike and I got so tired of hearing all the whining. You kids whined too.
Love, Mom
