Down the Narrow Path
All summer the girls have been begging to hike the Narrows in Zion's Canyon. For those of you who have been there, it is truly one of the most beautiful places in Utah. We took them last fall and they could hardly wait to go this summer. We finally made plans for last weekend. Hiking through the river in the slot canyons is really fun and a great adventure. Dotter #3 even started hiking but ended up on daddy's back. Great fun! Great day! Prior to that we always try to see a show at Tuachan in St. George, this fall we saw Aida. The weather didn't really cooperate, but we enjoyed it. Another St. George must is breakfast at the Bear Claw on Main Street. There is always a wait, but it is always worth it. The best french toast ever!
I like to think of these times when I get especially frustrated with the dotters or when they are driving me crazy and I don't think I can bear another minute with them. I often tell the Dotter's Dad we need to savor these moments and our precious family time. They love to spend time with us and they love to be together. I realize this will not always be. So these times are tender and sweet and I hold them close to my heart.
I hope you have a chance to enjoy sweet moments with your families. Savor them!
