Hiking the Y. Isn't this something you sort of have to do while you're in Provo? I thought so.
When we started this adventure, everyone was excited. Especially Audrey and Oliver who got to rotate pony rides on Ryan's back.
And then. . .well, Owen decided he was too hot. Too tired. Too thirsty. The hike was too long. Too steep. Too boring.
It was tough, but he pushed through (with promises of ice cream and Jimmer paraphernalia from the bookstore.)
After we snapped a few pictures Ryan talked to the children about how overcoming hard experiences in life bring us the greatest rewards. The hike was hard. The view was indeed a great reward. I think Owen understood the lesson.
Then we texted Grandpa one last picture and headed back down the mountain.
Utah, I really do love you.
