The other day we took the kids and my parents to Crystal Hot Springs in Honeyville Utah. Normally I dread driving for an extended period of time with the kids. But we were going to Logan to deliver gifts to a migrant worker family (our Christmas service project) and I thought it would be a fun excursion. My husband and I would go there fairly often before we had kids.
I am so glad we went on this little adventure! The kids loved it! We all loved it! It was like a little taste of Summer in the middle of a bitter Winter. It felt so wonderful to be outside (in a swimsuit) without being cold. The sun was shining and the water was warm.
They have a water slide there. What a dream to go down a water slide, outside, in the Winter. The steps to the top of the slide were frozen. It was quite an adventure.
This is how crowded it was on a Saturday afternoon. My kids informed me early on not to drink the water. Oh thanks, because I was considering it. It's mineral water. You see the little waterfall in the photo above? That's the water source. It's coming from underground. That is some hot water.
I thought this sign was funny. We were in rural Utah after all.
I have resolved to do more unexpected things with my little family. I have resolved to give my kids more memories and experiences. I have resolved to have more daring adventures with the people I love most.
What are your resolutions?
