Summertime!

I sort of lost my camera for awhile, so I haven't posted any pictures in ages! When I found it, I had several hundred photos of some of the fun things we've done this summer. This montage is several things we've done. First, Warren, Aspen, and the boys went jeeping one Saturday morning over Monte Cristo (between Cache Valley and Eden). Then, Warren and Will went on a long, hard hike up to the Wind caves in Logan canyon. The whole family hiked the short and lovely Limber Pine trail at the summit of Logan canyon, and lastly, we took a trip up into Bear Lake and spent a day hiking in Minnetonka cave. The cave was incredible! Nine 'rooms' all very different and very cool.


We are so happy that Matt has been able to participate in such fun activities this summer. He has kept pace with everyone and isn't having a bit of pain or complication. He feels wonderful. We are going on vacation to Chicago next week, and then school starts, and then the next week we have the appointment for Matt's MRI and our big appointment to figure out the next step in this journey. As for now, we are just enjoying the normalcy of our summer!

HOW FUN! Your boys are so cute. I am so glad that Matt is doing so well. It gives me warm fuzzies all over when I think about what a little miracle he has been through. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

GOOD LUCK on the MRI!!

That looks fantastic. I need directions to the easy Logan canyon hike. Also, we may try that cave sometime soon. I love caves! Would my little boys be able to do it?

Also, I'm really happy about your normal summer. How nice!

What an absolutely beautiful family. I am thrilled all of you are enjoying summer... you certainly kept busy.
Prayers and thoughts are with you all.

I am glad you have been having such a great summer. The video looks awesome. Every time you post pictures of Logan and the canyon I just long to be there. My boys would totally LOVE the cave! We will have to make a trip of it.

I'm glad you were able to have a good summer and that Matthew could do so much. What a blessing! The caving sounds like a lot of fun.
