Bridal Veil Falls

The sun is out and the Bares are coming out of hibernation! (I've only been a Bare for a less than two years so these "bare" puns are still funny to me, I apologize.)  We are so excited to get out of the apartment and show Carly this beautiful world she lives in! 
One of our favorite places to frequent when the sun is out is Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon.  Grass, trees, walking paths, picnic tables, and a creek running right through.  It's pretty much perfection.  Bridal Veil Falls is also a special place to me because it's where my grandpa proposed to my grandma! Awww... The falls usually look like this:
Pretty, huh?

 But because we decided to head over there a little earlier in the season, we ended up with this:

The falls were still pretty but there was a HUGE pile of dirty snow left over from an avalanche at the bottom.  It knocked over the fence and destroyed a portion of the path, so that made for some creative maneuvering of the stroller.

There is a pond at the bottom of the falls filled with ducks and huge fish and for the visitors to feed...

Carly was more interested in the dog. 

Matt decided to take Carly down by the creek...

Excuse me...IN the creek.

At this point I was I was yelling,

He didn't drop her.

He's excited for Carly to start walking across logs and such.

Judging from this face, tummy-time on a log isn't all that great.

Mommy's turn! This little girl sure loves her daddy, but I love that she always saves some smiles for me.

Absolutely precious.
We really miss our families, but Provo isn't so bad for now.
