My family had a wonderful mother's day. We picked up some KFC and headed up Big Cottonwood Canyon. After a short hike we came to the perfect picnic spot. We were nestled in the shade and far enough from the river that I didn't need to panic about the kids. Here is he conversation we had on the way to our picnic
Me -"Did you bring a blanket for the picnic"
Chad- " I was an eagle scout, I am always prepared. You're the fly by the seat of pants Floridian who shows up to the mountain wearing flip flops"
Me- "No, I wore boat shoes" (really not ideal for hiking, but in my world one step up from flip flops)
Chad- "Well, that's a miracle"
It was perfect weather and we had an awesome time!
