Millcreek Canyon and Hobo dinners

After our Labor Day activities we decided that before the snow flies (I shudder to think that it's just around the corner) we were going to have a picnic up in the canyon. Grammy and Wolf just returned from Germany and we decided to go up Millcreek Canyon. I was amazed (and jealous) by all of the bikes going up and coming down the canyon. It appears pretty popular with the cyclists. I made tasty dinners with ground beef, red onions, mushrooms, corn and tater tots. Afterwards we roasted marshmallows and made smores. It was so nice to be up in the mountains. We are lucky to live so close to such beautiful land. The kids had a great time. BTW, the Y rocked UCLA and the Utes squeaked out a win against the Aggies. Next week I'll get my canyon bike ride in. It was hard to choose the photo to capture the afternoon. Fireman Chit (less) Blaine tending the fire, Grammy putting down a tablecloth on a table that we didn't use, Krat preparing the KFC chicken dinner for her family, Olive drinking her gigantic bottle of Sprite and Jake holding his Powerade. Maybe we can do it again soon?
