Saturday Adventure


About once or twice a year, we get together with the Smith’s for a day in the mountains. I’m not sure why we don’t do it more often, it’s one of our favorite weekends of the year. We spend the day rock climbing digging in the dirt, and chatting for hours, and we all return home covered in dirt from head to toe. We ventured up to Big Cottonwood Canyon and boy, was it the perfect day. The weather was fabulous, minus a few sprinkles here and there that quickly passed, and being up in the mountains was glorious. I always forget how much I love rock climbing. I have a slight fear of heights (don’t look down!) but when I make it to the top and see the view, it’s a rush!


This girl belongs outside. She had dirt caked to her eyebrows and ripped a hole right through her pants, but couldn’t have cared less. She was wild and free! Later, when we gave her a bath, I about died. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen bathwater so brown! 😉


I struggle keeping headbands in my hair, they always slide and pull and I end up attempting to fix my hair all day long. I tried out Coco Bands for the first time while rock climbing, and I’m hooked! They’re non-slip headbands, they don’t leave an indent in your head, and they actually stay in all day. And I mean ALL DAY. Not to mention, they’re adorable and come with mommy & me sets. Can’t beat that! For the next three days you can get 15% off with code HEANDI15.


My camera was near dead when we arrived, so I opted for a few video clips. I wished I could have captured more before it died, but alas, this quick video will have to do. Here’s a little one minute snippet of our Saturday adventure. XO
