Our covered garden, year two. Or was it year three? No… two.
Here are some early pics from waaaaay last summer when I stopped posting for some reason. If you’re wondering about me keeping up this year, see this post.
Rather than try and go back and separate out each event that happened over the last two months, here’s a bunch of photos from that time.
The main reason I’ve missed so much is our camera had a series of unfortunate events… but we’ve got it back now so I’ve no longer got an excuse for not posting.
While we’ve done a lot of car camping this year, there’s always something a little different about packing it in. We did it once last year, and while it didn’t turn out to be the greatest of trips, we thought we’d try it again. The kids are another year older, and another year independent-er. This means, in outdoorsy terms, that Tory can walk on his own a lot farther.
It was a fun, spontaneous trip that the kids loved. I’m really glad they love the outdoors as much as mom and dad do.
While the rest of the world celebrates Labor Day, here in Park City we celebrate Miners Day. Even though most laborers in this town no longer mine.
Here’s a few images of Tegan wrestling with a popsicle. In the end she won, but that popsicle put up one heck of a fight.
When Kari and I were living in Maine those many years ago we learned to whitewater kayak and have done it off and on since. In the last few years it’s been more off than on, so we’ve been very excited to meet some people recently who also love to paddle. They also have kids which makes it even that much more possible that we’d hang out and boat together. We all got together for a weekend up near Jackson to camp and paddle nearby rivers. Kari and I were very lucky to get to paddle the Snake together two days in a row. The photos aren’t great here, but you’ll see some sweet underwater shots. I’ll say it now, people don’t look all that good when photographed under water.
We make it up to the Uintas quite a bit every summer, this year a little later than usual due to our extended winter/lack of spring. We spent just one night and then hiked the next day. These hikes are still short, but I’m guessing in the next few years they’ll stretch out longer with some overnight hike ins.
Friday night found us at the Summit County fair, along with some Park City and Heber City friends. There were rides, games, snow cones, and corn dogs. Kari and I even got to ride the Zipper (still my favorite carney ride). This being our first Summit Co fair, I was struck by the fact that carney folk are the same everywhere. As usual, click above for more fair fun.
