The end of August was filled with many rainy days. Or at least it sure felt like it! Lydia has a love for an umbrellas and rain boots. Good thing Hazel gave Lydia an umbrella at Christmas and cousin Eme passed down her rainboots. Lydia was one happy camper when I let her play in the rain with this get up in pajamas.

Family Reunion.

Many moons ago, or maybe just last July, we went to a family reunion up in Bear Lake. We stayed at a beautiful cabin up Logan Canyon. It was my Mom’s side of the family and it was great seeing relatives we haven’t seen for months or others for years!  The weather was perfect.  We went on razor and four wheeler rides, played all sorts of games, explored the area, and took a quick trip to Bear Lake on our way home.  I wish I would have taken more pictures, but it was a pretty quick trip and my hands seem to be full taking care of those girls of mine.

Lydia fell in love with riding on horses.  She could have gone all day!  She has been on a horse before, but something just clicked this time with her and she couldn’t get enough. photo WalserFamReunion2014_KaraSimmons_58_zps5acce331.jpg photo WalserFamReunion2014_KaraSimmons_59_zpsfdc9371a.jpg photo WalserFamReunion2014_KaraSimmons_62_zpsa29e415c.jpg photo WalserFamReunion2014_KaraSimmons_65_zpsacf64df8.jpgCan’t forget about our Hazey.  Happy to toddle around in a bunch of weeds for me.  photo WalserFamReunion20142_KaraSimmons_6_zps092b01ec.jpg photo WalserFamReunion20142_KaraSimmons_7_zpsb0ca68e9.jpg
And the whole Walser family side that was there.  Love this big old family of mine. photo WalserFamReunion2014_KaraSimmons_69_zps8a06c409.jpg

Park City 2014.

Every Labor Day weekend, we head up to Park City with Greg’s extended family. We stay in condos and run around Park City all weekend. Our main priority is to get a apple pie carmel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory while we are up there. This trip was most successful because we had two!  We go swimming, to the park, shopping, and visit with family while up there.  One evening I made my little family, and Greg’s little brother and his wife, hike up the hillside by the resort we were staying in where we had the most beautiful views of new fall leaves and the Alpine slide.  Yes, fall leaves already and it was barely September!  Pretty sad, but beautiful nonetheless.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the beautiful fall leaves, but it just happened so darn fast this year!

Before we head out of town on Monday, we stop by Park City main street and get a new ornament from the Christmas store.  Lydia got a cupcake ornament this year.  It looks and feels like an actual cupcake!  It’s quite impressive.   photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_8_zpsa159c86e.jpg photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_10copy_zps5dad446f.jpg

Just a little taste on how quirky this little lady’s personality is. photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_11copy_zps87ad3441.jpg photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_12_zps54b9a29a.jpg photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_14_zps8c503e97.jpg photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_15_zps943e6944.jpg photo Sept12014_KaraSimmons_16_zps6fc1cf95.jpg
Lydia got to ride the Alpine Coaster with dad and take a ride on the carousel with Hazel too. Don’t let Hazel’s face fool you. She loved the ride. Just hated me taking pictures of the event!
And that wraps up Park City 2014.
