We've been exploring some new places around us lately. Last week I took the girls on a little walk at the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve. It is a little 1 mile board walk with a lookout tower. The land is preserved for birds to stop there while migrating to and from South America. We saw a lot of birds and other wildlife. Esther's favorite part was what she called "Moana's house" ( above), and Adele liked seeing the ducks. I had Adele on my back in the Ergo and Esther did really well walking the whole way by herself. Esther was so "nervous" (her words) about the lookout tower. I guess she is afraid of heights like me ha. I was a little nervous up there too.

Adele is always so happy to walk like Esther. (The white on her face is sunscreen)

The only picture I could get from the top of the tower because Esther was freaking out.

A couple of weeks ago we went to Antelope Island with Leland. I had only been there once that I know of and Leland had never been. It was crazy weather! We had planned to do a short hike but it was hailing so we turned around early and went to the visitor's center instead. A little while later it was sunny and warm like the storm never happened. I was glad we were able to make it there before the bugs came out. We will see if we can make it back to explore more.
