Lover Boy has been dying to get out and take the jeep climbing. He asked me to make a date of it Sunday. Of course I agreed....I love dates. We asked Little Princess to come with us but informed her she'd have to miss church. I was pleasantly surprised when she said she'd rather spend the day with us. Don't get me wrong, I DO love the fact that she gets so excited to go to church, but I was thrilled when she picked us over church...ok, well I can't explain it without it sounding so absurd...I give up.
We packed us up some yummy lunch to have a picnic and headed up Farmington Canyon. We couldn't go all the way because the road was closed and covered in snow. When we'd barely started on the trail, my heart started racing, knuckles turned white and sweat was flowing in my under arms...I realized just how deathly afraid I am of heights. I ducked many times to avoid seeing the steep edge right out my window, or the beautiful scenery of the Great Salt Lake confirming that we were in fact high up on the mountain. I think I even shrieked a few times. My hands were gripped to the handle and Lover Boys hand the entire time. Little Princess just laughed and said I was being silly because she's only 4 and she wasn't scared and that Little Man is only 1 and he isn't scared....Well child, I AM!! I kept begging Lover Boy to turn back around. Eventually we did have to turn around, PHEW!! We went a little lower and found a spot that went across the bottom of the mountain that had some huge puddles and a few spots to actually climb. It was so fun watching them splash through the puddles. We all had a great time. We enjoyed our day as a family having fun and admiring the beautiful world we live in. I really can't wait to go again.
