Last month we decided to hike to the Y one early Saturday morning and luckily our friends, the Thackers, joined us. It had been a while since either Ben or I had hiked that trail, and Logan had never done it before. Seriously 5 steps into the hike Logan tripped and totally scratched up his leg. Of course, poor guy. I lost count of how many times he complained and whined on the way up, but he did it! And he was amazed at how HUGE the Y is once you get up there. He's just used to seeing the little speck of a Y on the mountain.

The dads half way up... Ben got to carry Linc-o and I got to carry the water and snacks. Thanks babe!
Peter, Logan and Paige at the top. I love how it looks like they're just sitting on the edge of a cliff - no biggie.

Crappy picture but it's the best view out to the lake that we got.
The hike was much shorter than I remember from last time - but I was also in better shape this time around.

And an early Saturday morning is never complete without a Provo Bakery visit. We took our doughnuts to Lo's t-ball game right after.
And last month I also went to the Manti Pageant with my Relief Society. Turned out there were only a handful of sisters who went but it was a blast! And it was also blasted hot that day.
I have never been a fan of the Manti temple just from looking at pictures, but oh my, it is one of the most beautiful temples I've seen now that I've been there in person. It is amazing to see up on the hill, especially as you're driving into Manti.

We ate dinner there (smoked turkey - yum!) and of course I couldn't pass up a snow cone. Even despite missing my usual cream on the top, it was a heavenly break from the heat.
Confession: I always take my own carton of cream with me anytime we get snow cones (which is often). Why? Because I like to put on a smidge more than the snow cone people put on. And I like to eat the top layer then add more. Yes, so healthy, I know. And I also get the same flavor every time - Raspberry Coconut. I'm addicted. And no this isn't a pregnant thing - I do it every summer. :)
I couldn't help falling asleep on the way home, but luckily we made good time and got in at 1:15 am. I'm so glad I went!
And last but not least this is what I found one night while checking on the boys - Lincoln taken over by all his furry friends.
