Not your Mother's Tubing...

We went tubing at Soldier Hollow and tubing has certainly been upgraded for this new generation of convenience. You hook your tube onto the tow rope and are pulled effortlessly up the hill and then you fly back down - at speeds that actually made me a little nervous, especially when my tube rotated and I couldn't see what was in front of me. Fortunately, we all survived the experience with no injuries and enjoyed chili and hot dogs in the lodge after.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!!...Belated

We had some fun celebrating Chinese New Year this year. This party was with the Utah Valley Families with Children from China group. They went all out - dragon parade, crafts, yummy food, etc. Dad and Benj. stayed home but the rest of us had a great time.

Zion National Park

Wow! That is all I can really say about Zion. It really is spectacular. We went down for the weekend with the crew from Tesch Law Offices - a little office retreat. We got there late Friday afternoon and left early Sunday but it was a nice break.

We hiked Angel's Landing, actually we turned around at Scout Overlook - a 4 m. round trip hike - we skipped the last 1/2 mile to the top since it was narrow, steep and somewhat icy. With 4 little boys (our 3 and one of someone elses) we decided that might be a little risky.
