This last weekend I finally got to go to the cabin for the first time this summer. I don't know what took me so long! We have a cabin in Fairview Canyon and I owe a lot of great childhood memories to this most wonderful cabin that my grandpa built like over 30 years ago.
I think the only summer I didn't take a trip to the cabin was the one summer that I was gone on my mission. Other than that, it is a must do every single year! I can't get enough of this place.
This is our breathtaking view out the back windows.
We usually only stay at the cabin one night because there's no shower but this time we were lucky enough to stay over two nights. The first morning I woke up early and saw some deer outside.
And we saw plenty of hummingbirds. In fact, they almost attacked me once. They're not shy at all.
There are certain things we always eat at the cabin for breakfast, pancakes and hot chocolate. And for some reason they always taste twice as good as normal.
Another huge tradition we have that I've done every year ever since I can remember is go to the frog pond to catch frogs. I don't know why it's so fun. Especially since we just catch them, bring them back to the cabin, and then let them go in the pond again. Here's me and my dad searching for frogs.
The frogs were tiny this year. I don't even know if you can tell, but I'm holding one in my fingers.
On the trail...
We took a really long hike this year on a trail I've never been on before. It ran right along a stream and was so beautiful.
My mom got so jealous of all the fun we were having and finally decided to float around in the tube in her clothes.
