We went outside

Written October 2017

These photos (surprisingly) make me homesick for snow! I’m so glad we had the opportunity to live in Utah when we did. I don’t know if we’ll ever live there again, but we’ll hopefully always have a reason to visit.

Obviously January was filled with plenty of outdoor adventures. I don’t remember going skiing so soon after Lila was born, but I must have because I took the shots of Lance below on New Years Day at Solitude.

Also pictured: A leisurely stroll in the snow (thanks to the Bob stroller Dawn bought us!) up Spanish Fork Canyon, a random picture of our cars covered in snow (I don’t miss cleaning them!), another Sunday stroll — this time at Salem Pond, a snowy walk up South Fork canyon along a stream, a snowy walk up Provo Canyon to Bridal Veil Falls with my co-worker/friend Sammy Jo Hester, and our attempt at snow-shoeing along the Provo River up the canyon near our basement apartment. I remember we rented snow shoes from the BYU Outdoor Store but we didn’t last long. It was cold, they were cumbersome, and it started to snow pretty heavily only a few minutes into our jaunt. Still — we love the outdoors and were determined to introduce our new babe to the beautiful world, despite the cold! She stayed warm strapped to Lance in a baby carrier, and usually slept the entire time.
