Fairview

Hi everyone, it’s Josh. Our overnight trip to Fairview was super fun and I had a great time. The whole Cornell family came! We started out by driving up to the cabin which took about two hours. When we got there we went into the cabin to check it out and decide where we were…

Glamping at Bear Lake

Halle here, reporting for blogging duty.  For a fun summer get away, Cornell cousins at bear lake!! The drive was long, so we broke it up with fun lunch at a park, then visiting some cool hobbit holes up Logan Canyon in a little hike. Everyone just loved to run around and explore. We stayed…

Summer in Utah

The kids are going to blog about the main events of the summer, so I’ll take everything else!  First and foremost, meeting baby Cyrus!  We’ve all been anticipating this day.  And it didn’t disappoint.  He is the cutest human on the face of the earth.  Happy 4th of July!  And Happy Birthday Jhena!  We had…

Quarantine YW Camp 2020

Easter Escape Room 2020

Easter was fun this year!  We had so much time on our hands that we decided to go all out and try some new things this year.  First up, hydro dipped eggs.  This was fun!  But it required a little more talent than we have.  Mostly we ended up with brownish looking eggs.  We also…

Moab in the time of Coronavirus

When schools shut down, and before we actually knew how bad this pandemic was going to be, Natalie and I hightailed it to Moab for a few days of hiking and R&R in the sun.  Looking back, it probably wasn’t the most responsible choice, but at the time it seemed like a great idea.  We…
