Road Block


I was headed to Heber on December 05, 2013 and this is what I came across.  I sat behind them, waiting for them to notice me and move so I could get past.  The guy in the yellow (I believe he is the garbage man) looked at me a couple of times and even made eye contact.  I figured that he was just going to finish the sentence and then move on or something.  I waited an eternity (which was actually about 3 or 4 minutes) before I realized that they weren't going to go any where soon.  I got out of the car and went up to the men.  I asked them if the road was closed and the guy in the pickup was so nice.  He apologized, finished what he was saying and then drove away so that I could get past.

I wonder what they were talking about...

Adventure Time

Tyler and Missy have a monthly get together called Siesta Sunday.  My kids love going and spending time with their cousins. Seth and I like to go and spend time with the adults.  =)  We generally only go when there is no school the next day.
 
In May we decided to go on an adventure.  The only destination we had in mind was Siesta Sunday.  Our first stop was at the Jordanelle view area.  We stopped at places we had been past many times but never took the time to stop.  This is on the way to Heber and there was a little trail that we went on.  Here is Jared in front of Jordanelle.
 

Between Kamas and Heber, after the Jordanelle lookout, there is a traffic sign with a fish, a hook and an arrow to show us the direction.  We went there and there was a fun trail you could go on. 

On the trail there was this rock that was an island.  Seth helped all of the kids onto the rock.

 
 
 
 
After that we headed to Wheeler Farm.  We have been to the farm before but it is one of my favorite places to go in Salt Lake.
This is the hat Ellis wore.  He was in a performance at school where he did a little Spanish dance and all of the boys wore these hats.  He was so funny wearing it.  It didn't last long because it was a windy day and the hat blew off into the water.  Luckily it was waterproof and didn't get ruined.  I spent the rest of the time carrying the hat for him.  =)

 
This is an outhouse at Wheeler Farm.  I believe at one point it was actually used but the toilet is sealed off with plexi-glass or something.  I told Ellis to pretend that he needed to go to the bathroom.  He did such a great job pretending that I asked him if he needed to go to the bathroom after I took the picture.  =)

 
It wouldn't be Wheeler Farm without playing on the lightening tree. My kids love this tree.
 



  
 
After Wheeler Farm we went to Black Rock.  It is located near the Great Salt Lake on I-80 West.  Seth and I used to go out to this rock after we were married but we had never taken out kids out to explore it.  They loved climbing around on the rock and hiding in little caves.
