Hey everyone! First off how is your 30 day squat challenge going? You should be on day 4 now if you are doing this with me. But if you are just starting or missed a day that is fine, just keep pressing on. How are your legs and body feeling? I am a little sore but I like that feeling because then I know I am pushing hard and will be seeing results soon :) So Keep up with the Challenge and before you know it 30 days will be up. 

Yesterday my Brother took Scarlett, the puppies, and I on a hike right by where I grew up. The hike is called “BattleCreek” and its up Pleasant Grove Canyon. It was a fairly easy hike with only a few steep parts but it ends at a beautiful waterfall. It was a lot of fun and great to spend the afternoon outside enjoying nature. But here is the sad pathetic part of the story. I had never even heard of or been on this hike and I have lived in Utah my whole life. Pathetic I know! So this got me thinking that I need to research out some other cool hikes that are around me and start going on ones that I have never been on before. I made a list of 10 Fun Family Hikes that you could do here in Utah. I Challenge you guys to get out and try some of them and enjoy nature and being with your family and friends. If you do not live in Utah then I Challenge you to look up and research some hikes around your area and try out some new ones. You never know what you will find.
