TIMP CAVE...


We are trying to get out as a family more on Saturday, since we spend way too much time in the office and there is so much to see around us! Saturday is now the day of the week that Mace counts down too. We decided to attempt the Timpanogos Cave for John's Father's day activity on Saturday the 14th. We were so proud of the boys and how well they did up the hike. Mace nearly walked the whole way up by himself. Mace stopped at every bench to rest and told everyone who passed us a rule or two, since we watched the movie before climbing and it gives you all the safety tips. He was a 3 year old tour guide! Keston was the smart one and quickly fell asleep after the first 5 minutes up the trail, so John got an extra good work out! He woke up for the cave and still managed to hitch a ride on the way down---so daddy was sore for a week! The scenery was absolutely breath taking on the way up and down---and the cave was an awesome experience as well. As the tour guide was pointing out the different stalagmites and stalactites, Keston blurts out "Poop mom--POOP!". Everyone got a good little laugh and I have to admit, the one we were looking at did resemble poop. You gotta love those little ones!

Well you can't blame kids for being honest...or seeing things as they see it in their eyes. They do make life a little more fun with their comments. Looks like you had a lot of fun. Ainslie
