Mt. Charleston

On Wednesday we took an adventure with Julie, Naia, and her step-son Reagan.
We went to the beautiful Mt. Charleston, or cold mountain as Lilah liked to call it.
It really wasn’t that cold. Who knew 62 degrees could be so warm.
I don’t think we made it to Mt. Charleston, more like Lee Canyon.
We just went to some camping grounds to try to eat our food and enjoy some hiking and exploring.

We picked up some Kentucky Fried Chicken and headed towards the mountain.
We tried to eat outside in the beautiful weather but some bee’s or wasps liked our chicken and pretty much swarmed us.
( A swarm consists of more than 4 bees being around our site at once.)
Poor Reagan was totally freaked out by them, as was Julie, and they were both having a hard time, though Julie was trying to not act scared.
My girls were mostly OK unless the bee/ wasp flew around their face.
I suggested we eat in our cars so Julie agreed and we headed back to our original picnic spot. (We went to three different spots before we gave up because of the bees/wasp.)


Eating in the car.



Take a picture of me eating chicken mom!

Eden has proven to be my adventurous child. She would wander off without anyone near her. She did stay in eye range, but only because I kept reminding her to not go to far.




Take a picture of me holding the rock!


Eden, come back here!


We took a hike in the woods. Lilah loved the woods.

Wait, where’d Eden go?



We found a large tree that had been cut down.

This was the best out of the 2 pictures I took.



After being in the woods we decided to take a walk along the road.


They wanted to hold onto the stroller, at first.

Eden and Lilah both wanted to wander into the woods later so we distracted them by making them run to places.



Do these pants make my diaper look big?


Lilah’s hives came out a little with the running so we made her walk with us as Reagan and Eden ran ahead.

We had a fun day.

Eden slept for the 45 minutes home and decided that was enough nap for the day. Lilah never took a nap. In fact I think she’s going on nap strike.

    Your girls are getting so big. It’s so crazy to see them and the kids of all the other girls I grew up with and think back to when we were all in high school. Where did all the time go? It’s awesome to think about what everyone has accomplished in just a few years. Stayce Bennion (Ruesch now) just had her second baby…another boy. His name is Kayden and he was 7 lbs 2 oz and he is a week old today…just in case you wanted to know.
