Big, Big, Big, Big Day!

We started our day yesterday with a visit to American Fork Canyon, where we enjoyed seeing the beautiful views and the changing of the leaves on the hillsides.

It was a chamber of commerce day, with temperatures in the 70's with a slight breeze. We enjoyed the waters, boardwalks and paved walkways at Cascade Springs.

Tom's wheel chair can go anywhere and do anything, but, as some of the grades there are a little steep it cut out occasionally to cool off. It was a mechanical way of complaining about the hike! It just gave us a little more time to dawdle!

We stopped for a late lunch/early dinner at the Foundry Grill at Sundance Ski Resort. It has that great, rustic atmosphere, with delicious food to match it!

When we got back to Provo we stopped at the Monte Bean Museum where Brittany works. In addition to some great stuffed wildlife exhibits the educators have some live animals that they use for shows.

It turns out Mabel takes after her mother. She ain't afraid of no snakes!

We topped off a great day by meeting at Taste in Provo to celebrate my Mother's 88th birthday! She looks like one of the kids, doesn't she? Barbara and Kent also met us for a fun evening of chocolate sampling. An unexpected plus was getting to sample flavored vinegar and olive oils. It turns out you can live a long time in this world without even knowing those things existed!
