Sunday Drive

Alpine Loop
After church on Sunday, we took a drive in R's big truck through the Alpine Loop behind Mount Timpanogos to see all the fall colors. R made us sandwiches for us to take for a picnic dinner along the road. It was so amazing to see all the vivid colors. The boys were pointing to all the different colors, waterfalls, and plants. C actually fell asleep right as we started to drive up the canyon. I nudged him to wake him so he could see all the colors. He opened his eyes, took a look, said "wow!", then fell back asleep. He did finally wake up 30 minutes or so later when we stopped to eat our sandwiches, not realizing he missed most of the trip. R took some great pictures. Here they are!

It was so nice to spend an evening together as a family. We don't always get a lot of time together since R is at school a couple nights during the week and doing homework the other few nights he is home. He planned the whole thing, made us our dinner, and we all really enjoyed the night.

I LOVE all of the fall colors up there in the canyons. What a nice use of family time ... lunch and beautiful scenery. Those are great pictures.
