Another day, another hike. We decided to drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon to go do a hike called ‘Donut Falls.’
She can’t help but run when she is on the trails. Maybe I’ll be her crew one day for her trail adventure races.
We are going to have to get another backpack for next summer for the new baby to use too:)
Donut Falls is VERY family friendly and the waterfall was beautiful BUT it was way more crowded (luckily, we could still social distance the whole time) than what we prefer for hikes. Also, you have to hike up the waterfall to see the donut portion of the falls which a lot of people were doing but we didn’t because I was worried about somebody falling. Roundtrip it was about 1.9 miles!
Brooke’s reaction when she saw a chipmunk… I really hope we see some amazing animals in Yellowstone because they make our kids very happy.
We also did another short hike up Mill B which is a paved trail that is also in Big Cottonwood Canyon.
After being in the heat I made sure to pick up one of the most refreshing treats on the planet—> A frosted lemonade from chick-fil-a and then we all took a nap when we got home ha.
Oh and in the morning 5 miles happened!
Flashback to one year ago when I ran one of the hardest races of my life… I couldn’t even keep my eyes open towards the end because I was so tired.
Just a few Friday Favorites!
*WE PICK UP KNOX TODAY! It has been 2 weeks since we last saw him and it’s going to be the greatest reunion. Today is a holiday in Utah so we will be watching fireworks again (Skye cannot wait) and enjoying every second with him.
*My sister-in-law sent us the most fun ‘Thank You’ box of vintage candy (they also have Happy Birthday boxes etc). It was fun to go through everything and remember them from childhood etc. Our movie night treats are covered now for a very long time!
*A $6 tank top!! This tank comes in so many different colors and it is long (I’m just 5’8.75”). I’ve needed to buy tank tops that fit me better for workouts and hikes etc but I have not wanted to pay the price tag of maternity items for them (I swear maternity items are just so much more expensive). I have been getting these tanks in a bigger size and they work perfectly! They wash well, they are the racerback fit and I just love that they are so cheap.
*My bike! I’ve had a few people ask me about what bike I have and this is the one that Andrew got me because he says it’s a great beginner bike for a really great price (for bikes… I guess anything under 1k is a great price which was news to me;). I personally love it and have been using it a ton lately. We are going to take our bikes on our trip to Yellowstone and I’m excited for trails that we are going to find along the way there and back to break up the hours on the road. PS the extra seat and handlebars do not come with it, those are from Shotgun.
*My sister had me watch Happy Face with Ryan Hamilton on Netflix the other day and we laughed so so hard. He is hilarious and his stand-up is very clean!
*A new Taylor Swift album is out!!!!!
*This tip from Brooks! Store your running shoes in a cool place so that the materials don’t break down faster than they should!
