Saturday Hiking

We took the kids hiking up Ogden Canyon on Saturday. We had planned a really fun hike a little bit further away, but it was supposed to rain so we did a smaller one. It never rained.

We saw a baby rattlesnake on the side of the trail. It coiled up inside a log and had its mouth open.
We talked to some guys on the trail who had seen a bigger one. Brooklyn was really scared. So she got to ride in the baby backpack.
Stopping for a little snack. The highlight for our kids, of course.

My big second grader!

Zach started second grade yesterday. He started at a new school too. He is going to Ogden Prep, so they are required to wear uniforms. I love it. He actually likes the uniform part too. His teacher is a guy and I think he is going to really like having him for his teacher.
So far(after one day), Zach is loving his new school. Zach's favorite part is that they get to go to Spanish class each day.
Good Job Zach!
