Today is bitter-sweet. It's officially the first day of Fall. I love summer- the sun, the heat, no school, the swimming, playing outdoors, bbq-ing, etc, and I'm quite sad to see it end. But I also love Fall- the crisp autumn air, not dripping sweat every time you walk down the street, the colorful leaves, "sweater weather", Halloween, and also the following holidays... It's a good season.
To commemorate this momentous occasion, I went with some of Justin's family, yesterday, to Sundance (Provo Canyon), to ride the ski lift and see the fabulous changing leaves. It was absolutely gorgeous. It reminds me why I like living in Utah. (I know, Mom, don't rub it in that Seattle is better. I already know. I'm just trying to be appreciative of what I have.)
Ok- if you go to Sundance, you have to buy a lollipop. They are so good. I mean, who's ever heard of an "orange cream" or "cookies and cream" flavored lollipop? I know I hadn't.
Just beautiful. It almost makes me forget that we live in a desert.
They had to go play in the river, of course, and I was completely impressed with Kennedy's balancing skills. I may sign her up for tight-rope classes.
Her facial expression kind of scares me in this picture.
(Oh- and Justin had to miss out on this event because he was working. Being responsible sucks, sometimes.)
So... Fall is nice. But winter? Bleh. I think it should stay through Thanksgiving and Christmas. And then it should just end. Spring should start in January and continue until June. Let's petition. Who's with me?
