Our Walk to Remember

"When the sun shines... we shine together
told you I'll be here forever..."
"... said I'll always be your friend,
took an oath, I'm gunna' stick it out 'till the end..."
"... now that it's raining more than ever,
know that we still have each other.
You can stand under my umbrella."

Greg and I had been so excited to continue our tradition of driving the Alpine loop as the leaves are turning.  We figured that it probably wouldn't be too busy being conference weekend and a rainy one at that.  We were wrong.  Greg was so adorable he had the car packed with 2 umbrellas and a cooler filled with some ammo for Haven, and for himself as well :)  My brother Blake was able to drive up with us before he had to go to work and was able to snap some shots of us.  (So next time you talk to him... tell him what a great photographer he is :)  

It was pouring rain but we bundled up and went for a walk.  It was SO much fun.  The smells and sights were unbelievable.  Utah is such a beautiful place.  We're so lucky to have this within a 25 minute drive from where we live.  We were in heaven just taking it all in.
Just to give you an idea of the gorgeous scenery I took the following 3 pictures from the same spot just turning around.  Breathtaking.  Pictures just didn't do the view justice.

The rain brought the most gorgeous mountain-hugging clouds.
Here's me and our little Mr. Man.
She LOVED her Baby Bjorn front pack.  
We haven't used it in forever, 
so we were unsure of how she'd feel about it... 
I think it's safe to say she loved every minute of being in it
 because it just meant one long perma-hug from Daddy.  
A classic photo at arms' length taken on our walk in the rain.
My favorite

Her face in this one is too priceless.
Thanks for lending your skills Brock.
So much more fun than being stuck inside on a day like this... 
who'd have thought?  You rock Greg.  You definately made this
