Our canoe trip to Utah Lake

So we decided to try to do something a little more adventurous than what we have been used to. Today we decided to take Jack canoing (we even bought him a life vest last night at $^%&$^&$%). We got down to the farm and found that the only way to move the boat was on top of our car. Hailey said it was white trash, and I said it was inventive. We ran into huge snow drifts on the road to the pond and again, we were inventive I pulled the canoe Klondike style. We finally made it to the lake only to realize I forgot the paddles. I found an old shovel and thought it would make the perfect canoe paddle. Trashy or inventive? Anyway, Jack had a great time thinking that we were reenacting a scene from 'Pirates of Penzance'. The weather was great and Hailey and I had a great time as well.

Singin' in Zion

Jack had such a good time on our trip to Zion N.P., and it made the trip so much more enjoyable than any other that we have done before. Here's a little taste of what Jack had to offer.
