Fourth of July Hike up Donut Falls

Standard

It turned out we were able to have a four day weekend for the holiday so we headed down to Utah to hang out with the Blaines and the Nelsons.  It was a big family reunion!  But for the actually day, we went on a hike in the morning up Donut Falls near Salt Lake City.

Jensen has super fair skin… and well he’s also bald, so applying sunscreen is always a party in itself.  And of course the hat.

I took the pack first because I wanted look like a cool mom.  Well, I already do, but this helps  🙂

It was probably the easiest hike I’ve ever been on.  But hey, it was fun to finally use our cool hiking pack!  I felt very adventurous.

When we got to the top, I dropped Jensen off with Grandma, and we climbed up the waterfall to the donut part.  I thought it was a weird name until I saw the donut.

You could go in a cave and see where the water was falling.

Look how much water it is compared to Jared.

We were refreshed from the heat because of the mist everywhere.

Then, we joined the family and took a water break.

Jensen sure loves his Grandpa Blaine!

It’s always a family event to try to help Jensen keep his hat on.

And he just takes it off anyways.

This hiking pack is awesome for babies to fall asleep in.

Of course we had to finish the night off with exploding things at the house.
