Our Fun Little Weekend

Seth and I had both been wanting to hike the Adam's Canyon trail here in Layton for a long time and this weekend we finally did. The hike was about 3.5 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 1187 feet. The trail leads to a 40 foot waterfall which, as a boy scout told us on the way up, "is totally worth the hike."

I think working out in Colorado has put Seth in a lot better shape. We used to have pretty equal fitness levels, but he kicked my butt hiking up there. He could have hiked to the top without any breaks, but I probably would have died had I not pretended to stop periodically to "admire the scenery." So now I guess I'm gonna have to work out in order to keep up with him. Or I could take the easy way out and make lots of delicious food that he'll scarf down, unaware of my secret attempt to bring him back down to my level.
Doesn't he look heroic?

Our friend, Ramona, came up to Layton that same evening and brought her Wii. We had a great time playing Mario Kart, boxing, baseball, target shooting, and Seth's favorite... cow racing. Seth and I both agree that we should definitely buy a Wii for exercise purposes (it's a hard sacrifice I know, but I'm willing to do it for health's sake). We worked up quite a sweat playing those games, especially the boxing. My shoulders are actually sore from all that punching!

This weekend was really fun and I had a great time hanging out with my wonderful husband. We technically have a few hours left before the weekend is over and I'm sure we'll try and squeeze more really amazing things in. Although, I don't know if anything can top BYU beating UCLA 59 to 0 (at least in Seth's eyes).

I bet you could practically RUN that trail, these days! You're lucky... so many beautiful places so close to home!

And, once again, you're right. Seth looked TOTALLY heroic.
