The "Y"

Today I hiked up to the "y" with my dad, all 4 boys, and my Uncle Mike. I've never done it before and I'm sure that had it not been SCORCHING hot, and had they not been bringing up new dirt, it would have been a fantastic hike. As it was.... there was so much loose dirt that I spent a lot of time trying not to slip and fall on my butt, while sweating profusely from the heat of the day and the heat of carrying my baby in a wrap against my body. LOL! I actually thought I might throw up at one point!

I survived. I didn't fall on my butt, and my boys did an amazing job! Thank goodness my Dad and Uncle were there. They helped a ton by switching off carrying the 3 year old and my dad also took turns with the wrap and the baby!!

Here's a pic of us at the top. Don't mind the white legs. Seriously.. they don't burn or tan... just GLOW!!! AHH!!!

What a great workout... and definitely fun to change it up sometimes. You are looking great by the way :)

As a non-Utah-person I was thinking to myself, "hmm, the Y, like the YMCA?" LOL But I think I figured it out. Is it the big Y that you see on the hill, I mean mountain, near BYU? If so, yikes! Well, done! What a hike!

Yeah the Y is the Y on the hill. It's a crazy hike. Doesn't look too bad but it's switch back after switch back, all up hill at a pretty good incline. It was such a good workout that I keep thinking we should head up there and do it again today. But... I'll wait for it to cool down!
