On Wednesday we hiked to Fish Creek Falls. The falls were pretty amazing, but because of the lack of guardrails, we had to stay on our toes with the little ones. Seth spent most of the time looking for rocks to throw into the rapids below.
Here is Biffy on the Bridge below the falls.
Here are Rachel and Sarah taking it easy on the hike.
Mom and Biffy had fun going down the slide together.

Biffy is doing great. During General Conference I noticed she was enjoying the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I asked her if she wanted to join the Choir when she grew up. She responded, "No, I am going to be a mermaid." When asked how she would become a mermaid, she informed us that she could go "buy a tail" and "somefings" -(later determined to be a seashell bra). Biffy gets along very well with Seth (unless he is in the mood to wrestle). She is learning so much at school and from Erin. Perhaps the most valuable lesson of the week: If you have to share tub water with your brother, it is usually best to bathe first.
We were very proud. Even the little ones sat captivated by their big sister.

On Wednesday evening, Sarah was out riding bikes with her friends. She was apparently going so fast, she pedaled her pedals right off her bike. This sent her bike careening out of control and Sarah, taking after her old man, went flying off of her bike. Sarah smacked her head on a rock and got a little scraped up. She got an inch long cut above her left eyebrow. Erin threw the kids in the van, called Dad at work, and headed for the hospital so Sarah could get stitches. Dad met the family at the hospital and stayed with Sarah while the little ones went with Erin to see Rachel's Marie Curie presentation. Sarah did a great job and had to get 3 stitches. After we finished up, Sarah and Dad went to Red Robin for a Daddy-Daughter date. As you can see, she is doing fine now.
