We decided to head to the mountains for some cooler weather...and we loved every minute of it!
It's always nice to get away even if it is only for a few days...
On the first day we got there we went on a little walk around the cabin we stayed at. Our cabin was the second from the left in the picture below. It was so beautiful! The trees, the smell of pine trees, the breeze...just perfect! The best part is that Jacob totally loved it too...he loved being outside and being able to explore, and play with rocks, insects etc...It was really fun. At the end of the day, his favorite thing is his bath...and he loved the jacuzzi tub! It was much more fun than the tub at home I guess!
On the second day we went to Mirror Lake, walked around the lake and took some pictures. We also went to Kamas so Randy could get his fishing license, and went sight-seeing. On our way back to the cabin, Jacob was asleep and all of a sudden a deer jumped right in front of our little Honda Civic! I of course I freaked out, and Randy had to slam on the breaks...good thing we have good breaks...otherwise I might not be telling this story right now! (Jacob woke up from his nap too...) Randy encounters deer almost on a daily basis on his way to work, up North Ogden pass...so he is used to looking for them on the side of the road. We were actually driving home from his work one night (when we used to clean floors there), and we saw a moose on the side of the road...in the darkness...just watching us...it was kinda scary! Anyway, on to our trip story...
We got home that second evening and since Jacob goes to sleep around 7 pm we stayed in the cabin the rest of the night. Which was fine, because we just put him in the other room, and he slept surprisingly well! There was a swing in front of the Cabin overlooking the little lake so we went out there late at night and had some oreos and milk under the stars! It doesn't sound like much fun, but it was!
The next day we went and hiked to Fehr Lake and Randy fished...while he patiently fished (I didn't realize how much patience it takes to fish), Jacob and I got to explore and play in the great outdoors! It was really fun to watch him discover new things...once again he loved to try to eat the rocks! I'm not sure why he does that...I'm pretty sure he's not hungry...oh well, I guess he's a boy right? He tried to eat a few ants too! I need to get used to all the insects that will become his best friends in a little while!
Our time at Fehr Lake was so nice because first of all Randy was the only one fishing...and after a while, we were the only ones there! He didn't catch any fish, but that's the risk you take when you go fishing...you don't always catch anything...so it was still fun, and we enjoyed our time there.
On our last day there we went early to the fish pond near our cabin and fed the fish. We bought some fish food on the first day we were there and had forgotten to go feed the fish. I think we had more fun than Jacob. He couldn't really see the fish, so he didn't really understand what we were doing. He did throw some food into the pond and that was fun for him!
I just want to say how blessed I feel to have married Randy and to have Jacob in our lives now. I love them so much and couldn't imagine my life without them. I am the luckiest girl!
