Fourth of July - Part Deux

That's "two" in french by the way.

On Tuesday we headed up the canyon for a picnic dinner and a walk up to Bridal Veil Falls.


 Normally our kids are in tennis shoes when we do this "hike" (anyone who's been to Bridal Veil Falls knows why I put the word hike in quotes), so we don't let them go in the water.  I know my kids and if we let them go in with their shoes, they'll complain the whole way back home about wet shoes, and if we let them take off their shoes, they'll complain about the sharp rocks below the water.  Solution: they don't go in.  

But this time they had sandals on, so we told them they could go in...they were very excited.


 By the way, if I ever ask Hannah to smile for me while I'm taking a picture...or even look at me for that matter, this is what she does:

Silly little Hannah Bun.

Maya was also excited about the water.


Until she realized we weren't going to let her go in.


Then she wasn't very happy with us.


Lilly wasn't to happy about it either.


And when it was time to go, Hannah joined in their displeasure.


But after wiping away some tears, we actually had quite a pleasant walk back to the cars.  The whole time I got to walk behind this sweetness:


I gotta say, I am really really glad these two are my grandparents.  They are seriously just some of the most wonderful people I know, and I love them so much.  Just thinking about them makes me so happy!

And here's a little picture of some of their kids, grand kids, and great grand kids on the path in front of them.


I Love you grandma and grandpa!
