An outdoorsy kind of weekend...the best kind there is!

It was Jake's last "off shift" over the 4th of July weekend. He's working his last week at work now and will be leaving for Oklahoma at the beginning of August for grad school. (99% sure he's really going) When he gets back things will be all about getting ready to move and everything that goes along with that. There aren't any mountains where he's going so it's been fun to spend so much time with him taking them all in before he goes. We spent the weekend and the holiday trying to get outdoors as much as we could. (It was nice to finally have some sunny days so we could.) When he was busy with school stuff it was badminton, frisbee, playing catch, feeding horses, watching thunderstorms, riding the cruiser, lighting fireworks, or just sitting on the porch. When we had more time to get away we managed to get in some climbing in American Fork Canyon, hiking with Andy's family in Millcreek Canyon, a little impromptu bouldering in Big Cottonwood Canyon, and just plain relaxing by Blood's Lake up on Guardsman's Pass. The pictures are better than me listing it all so...

Sad for me or sad for him? (or both)
