Memorial Day

This past Monday was Memorial Day.  On Friday late afternoon the weekend started with the discovery that our brand new air conditioning was not working.  The game plan for the weekend quickly changed to doing whatever necessary to stay cool.

Our mission to stay cool was aided by the fact that our community pool opened the week before.  Saturday we spent the day in the pool and the kids couldn't have been happier about it.  It was the first time I didn't have to rush the kids out of the pool before they were ready.

Monday, our mission to stay cool took us up the gorge.  We started with a hike to Wahclella Falls.  It was a fairly easy one mile hike up to the falls and the pay off was great.  Along the way, Jeremy and I were talking about how spoiled our kids are.  We have access to countless waterfalls and other amazing things within an hour of the house.  They don't even realize how good they have it.

After we finished the hike we went up to the Boneville Dam.  We took a tour, watched the salmon swim up the salmon ladder, and had a picnic overlooking the spillway.

We capped off the day with some dinner and ice cream.  In hindsight, a hot fudge sundae in the car for the kids may not have been the best idea.

We ended up having a great weekend despite the no AC and thankfully our new, brand new AC unit was installed yesterday.  Hopefully we won't have any more hot house days in our future.
