hello Monday...looking back at a wonderful summer...

hello Monday... the kids are back in school and the season are rolling forward.

I love having a good summer to look back on. 
Sweet memories to take out as the schedule speeds up and rolls along to sports, and homework and the school year daily chores.  

Hello Utah and Bryce and Zion...Hello Arizona and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We loved visiting the National Parks with the kids.We Love the American West...We'd been there 17 years ago camping as newlyweds...
but bringing the kids back was something we've wanted to do for some time.

Here are my fave pics from the trip.  
They are also some of the very few I have...my camera broke mid-trip. Sigh.

 Hello slickrock in Zion...
 Hello 8.5 mile hike up the Narrows in Zion...
 Hello to the cowboys who took us down the North Rim on mules...

Hello to doing the silly vacation-y things you do when you travel...

Hello Cedar Breaks and 1,600 year old Bristlecone Pine...

Hello hoodoos & Bryce...maybe my fave of them all...

And hello Dawn...you know I love you...what a sweet treat to be with you and your family at the end of the vacation... hope to see you soon xoxox

Hello Monday...hope it's a good week for all of you...

I know I will see some of you in OHIO!!!

I cannot believe the FAIR IS THIS WEEK!!

xo Jen
