Nice Little Saturday

Last week Chris and I decided to take advantage of Snowbird's "Customer Appreciation Day." For a can of food each, you could ride the tram for free. So, why not, we said. Two cans of cream of chicken soup, a can of corn and one extra large jar of peanut butter later, we were ready to elevate.


Our view in the front of the tram before making the climb. Chris is actually afraid of heights, so he was a good sport to go with me.


A beautiful view of Little Cottonwood (or is it Big?) and Salt Lake Valley waaaay in the distance. It was such a beautiful day.



I'm king of the mountain! Chris was scared the whole he was taking this picture that I was going to fall off. I love my paranoid, sexy man.



There was a conversation that happened at the bottom that made me laugh out loud for a good 30 seconds. Disclaimer before I share it. Chris is not some hedonistic sinner guy who does bad things. He's very kind and worthy. But his comment was too priceless.

As we were looking up at the never ending cable that carried the tram up the mountain...

K: Chris, what would you do it the cables snapped while we were up there? (Again, my flair for the dramatic is a little much sometimes.)

C: Hold on to you.

Pause...pause...

C: And repent.

This may not be funny to anyone else, but in the moment and how he said it, an instant classic to me. Then, on the way up as he was trying not to look at the ground or calculate how high we actually were,

C: Maybe I should have repented on the ground, it probably means more.





Thanks for facing your fear so I could enjoy a pretty fall afternoon on top of a mountain!


Then later...

My super beautiful, super talented sister Jenna won an Academic All-State Award. So we went to the 2A State Championship Girls Soccer Game to see her accept her award at half-time. I'm so proud of my little sis! She's twice the teenager I ever was! She's amazing. Love you Jen!

Yay, I loved seeing pictures of you guys. but at the same time it made me sad that I haven't seen you guys it what seems like years. Can you believe we were just living in pittsburgh a couple months ago? A few weeks ago, weston and I went hiking and I found out for the first time in our marriage that Weston is also afraid of heights. We got to the top and I looked over the railing and he pulled me back because he thought I might fall. Hahahaha what a cutie my little wimp is.
