Hello my friends! It was totally hard to be in Utah without my best friend, Violet. While I was there, she was away at summer camp. Luckily, her parents were so nice as to include me on a trip to their cabin! I was so excited because Violet has told me all about it. Still, in all my trips to Utah, I'd never been.
Near the cabin is this incredible meadow! It is surrounded by beautiful aspens. It felt so magical to be there, even though I really wished Violet could have been there too. It was a hot day and I loved exploring like a little brownie fairy girl in the wild!
There was a really, really cool stream in the meadow! Violet's mama said I could play in it. The water was shallow and cold. I stepped very carefully and played in the water. It was so fun! Of course a brownie fairy girl would have her very own stream.
The stream was awesome! I loved all the smooth rocks at the bottom and all the big rocks poking up from the water that I could hop between. I really, really wish that I could have a stream in my courtyard back home in New York, but I think it would probably be really gross and polluted.
After I played in the stream for ages and ages, I decided I really needed a rest. I found a spot with no nettles among some pretty yellow flowers (Does anyone know what the flowers are called?) and took a little rest. I daydreamed about shrinking really small and living in the big, wide meadow and riding on the back of a dragonfly.
Soon enough, I woke up (the sun was really too bright to nap!) from my rest. My shoes were finally dry so I walked up and down the road that cuts through the middle of the meadow. It was such a beautiful day to be exploring. I heard Mama and Violet's parents calling me to lunch- yum!
After lunch and lots of playing in the meadow, the sun started to set over the mountains. We would be leaving to go back to the house soon, but I had a little while left to play. Violet's mom told me that I could go back to the stream and look for little frogs! How could I resist? I ran down the path to the stream and began my search.
Success! I found a little froggy! It was so tiny and cute! I had Mama snap this photo before he jumped off my hand back into the stream. I was so excited that the frog let me catch him. It reminded me of the time Violet and I found a hermit crab on Corn Hill Beach on Cape Cod.
Finally it was time to go home to Violet's family's house. I scrambled through the aspen forest to the car back at the cabin. On the way, I paused to make a mountain wish- I wished that the next time I came to Utah, Violet would be home from camp and able to explore the mountain meadow with me!
Have you ever spent time at a cabin? Was it on the beach? in the mountains? the forest?
