For the past few weeks in Salt Lake the leaves have started turning beautiful colors. We've wanted to go on a drive up the canyon and on Friday the 11th we finally got around to it.
The leaves were quite beautiful on the drive up. But the farther up we drove, the faster time seemed to go, so that when we reached our destination it was actually winter. There was more snow than colored leaves.
|This little guy so warm and cozy, I thought for sure he would be grumpy pants in the cold.|
|All the way up here, these were the only "fall leaves" left!|
We bundled the kids and walked a little bit around Silver Lake. Axel loved it, Olivia less so. Axel's little nose was so red, but he was laughing the whole time (except in the picture, naturally)
|Olivia cheered up a little when she saw a duck.|
So maybe it wasn't the fall leaf outing I was hoping for, but it was still great. We met a cute couple taking pictures on their iPhones (Axel was flirting with the girl), a crusty fisherman who turned into the cutest clown when trying to get Axel to smile for the camera and exchanged one liners with two guys taking pictures for their online dating profiles (at least that is what we were joking about. I can't imagine what they were actually doing. . .)

Usually I'm a little bit of a homebody. (Have I mentioned that I hate that word? It reminds me of homely. I like to hang out at home, but I do get dressed and look presentable) Being a SAHM has made me more excited to get out of the house for outings, the kind of thing Adam lives for. Maybe I only thought I was a homebody because I was so worn out from working that I just wanted to hang at home.
In any case, I love people and it was just so fun to make little connections. Like the guy at dinner that night who commented that Adam and I were wearing rival college gear.
(Like how I ended this post? Bet you didn't see that coming. Neither did I.)
