Did you know?

Did you know that Lake Bonneville has evaporated and reformed 28 times in the past 3 million years? A tidbit we learned while reading the panel at the beginning of the trail head.

Did you know that Huntsville's fireworks start promptly at 10pm? It's OK Eden's fireworks start at 10ish and have a little story time before they light stuff on fire. We didn't miss a thing.

Did you know that Thomas can sleep through fireworks? Lucky us. Josh's favorites are the LOUD ones. My favorite are the glittery ones. We both love the purple ones.

Did you know that when you're up the canyon after dark it's NOT unbearably hot? In fact it's cold enough that you're thankful for the blanket.

Did you know that Josh came back to bed when Tommy went down for his nap this morning? I've never actually seen Josh asleep at 10am for anything. Ever. Until this morning. Keep in mind he woke up at 6:30 with Thomas for a couple of hours, but he came back. And that is nothing short of a miracle.

Did you know that when you hike to the waterfall in Waterfall Canyon you hike UP to the bottom of the fall? And there you sit, watching the water droplets fall from way up there and feeling the spray on your face. Quite a lovely experience.

Did you know that in 1778 they celebrated the 4th of July with double rations of rum? We're celebrating with snaps, sparklers and homemade ice cream. Personally I like our version better.
