What we have been up to lately...

We were able to go on a hike with the Young Men and Young Women from our ward. They are all going on trek this summer so they were getting prepared by hiking. We went to "The Overlook" up Milcreek Canyon. This was Walker's first official hike! Thanks to Jake for carrying him in the backpack the whole way! (thanks Mur and Adam for letting us borrow the pack) The hike was 2 miles each way. When we got to the bottom of the hike we enjoyed breakfast with everyone. Walker did really well! He was sad a little bit on the way down (nap time) but over all he really enjoyed it! This is his new smile - sometimes he won't show his teeth. Cute buddy! Here is what we say at the top of the hike - it overlooks the Salt Lake valley. It was really pretty. I have a crappy camera and I think the picture looks pretty cool. We have been working in our yard a lot lately. Thanks to Jake and his mad skills - I usually just sit and watch or take care of Walker. Walker LOVES to be outside and "helping" daddy when he can. He loves the dirt - we caught him eating some the other day. Oh well - boys will be boys! On Friday Walker got his first haircut! He actually wasn't too sad about it, but the picture kinda looks like it. He wore the shall thing the whole time and didn't even cry! Thanks Ashli for cutting his hair! It really needed it.He loves to play! He has grown so much in the last few weeks! He plays with all his toys by himself, gets into the "toy cabinet" and gets out all his toys. He has finally figured out how to push the button by himself on the ball popping toy. He makes me laugh every day. He is starting to pull up on things and he is crawling like a maniac!
