Labor Day Weekend

The children and I spent Labor Day at Jake's home away from home: Mill Creek Canyon. (Seriously, the guy knows it like his hand!)
The weather was gorgeous and the kids played and hiked and we ate a picnic lunch.
Playing in the creek.
Seth--This is his "office".  His name for this spot.  He spent a great deal of time playing with sticks here.
Jacob took Caleb and Ethan on quite the hike, a mile in, build a survival shelter, a mile out.  They were pooped!  And happy.  So often these go together with boys, wear them out and they are fulfilled.
We also had family here for a visit on Saturday and Sunday, Nathan's mom, my parents and Ryan and Natalie's family were here as Jacob was ordained a priest. This is a pleasant lunch with cousins!!! Cousins are one of our favorite things!

Seth's "office" is the the perfect office.
