Picnic in the canyon

My family usually gets together to celebrate Pioneer day, but this year everyone did their own thing. We spent a big part of the day at Deer Creek Reservoir. That night, we watched a movie and did a few sparklers out front. Emilia really liked watching the sparklers!

Because we didn't hang out on the holiday, we decided to meet up at Millcreek Canyon a few days later. The forecast was threatening rain, but when we got to our picnic site, it was just a little cloudy and it was quite warm! James wanted to explore a lot (especially the waterfall!) and Emilia loved getting passed around and loved on. We got out some chips and dip to snack on while Jessica and Joe kept the fire going and Ethan started cooking hot dogs.

A kiss from cousin Juliet!

Emilia wore a special hot dog outfit and Converse "sneakers"

We wanted to get some pictures by this waterfall because this is where we had some of our engagement pictures taken

After a tasty dinner of hot dogs, macaroni salad, and watermelon, it was time for s'mores! I love s'mores. In fact, I'm pretty sure they are my favorite dessert. We all sat around the fire roasting marshmallows and laughing and stealing everyone else's prepared graham crackers. Emilia was not interested in sleeping so I cuddled with her on a camp chair. She was so interested in everything going on. 

I think some family time in the mountains was just what I needed today!
