 Since Rob missed our last hike to the Sandy waterfall we decided to go again with him.  The kids were so excited to show him the waterfall.  The knew just where to go.  We got there and started the hike up the stairs...

 Rob was in charge of the camera most of the time.  :)  Isn't he handsome??  

 The kids showed him this cool cave.  

 Rob helped them climb onto that ridge again.  Sadie was a little nervous since this is the spot where she was stung by a bee the last time we were here, but she didn't get stung this time!  Phew!  There were actually a lot less bees and wasps flying around this time.  I think it was because when we went with my mom, we were hiking at 11:00am and it was sunny and hot.  This time, we went in the evening, so it wasn't hot and the bees weren't hovering over the water.  

 I love this picture!  My family is the cutest!

 Emery enjoyed playing in the wet sand the whole time.  

 And she kept her undies dry the entire hike.  I was really glad about that since I was the one carrying her on my back!  :)

 Sadie climbed up here all by herself.

Just to give you an idea of how high it was.  Pretty high for her.  

I love spending time with my kids in nature.  We play a lot outside at home and everything, but taking them up into the mountains is just fun.  They love all the rocks and water and trees.  Zac's favorite thing to do is throw rocks in the water.  He could do it for hours.  I am so glad that Heavenly Father created this world and made it beautiful for us to enjoy.

I'm with you on that being out in nature sentiment! I'm hoping we can re-do that hike near the Phoenix Temple when you are here in December. They will enjoy it much more now that it isn't 110 degrees outside.
