Fall Moab Excersion

It's that time of year again! MOAB!!! This trip was a little different than normal which for the most part, I found very refreshing. And our cousins came along this time which rocked! It was so good to kick back and have fun with them and their families.

We went down Thursday morning. We were a little worried about a 4 hour car ride with Kennedy but she took it like a champ! We unloaded everything and just sat around camp for the rest of the day. There wasn't too much time to do much else.


Friday morning the boys and girls separated and for different activities and for the first time, I did NOT get to go 4-wheeling. It was weird. I didn't like being left behind. The boys enjoyed a little of this:


 Cory said Brock was calling for dinosaurs and took a picture of it.



Meanwhile, us ladies did something I've never done in Moab; we went shopping and dining!! We walked around the stores and I didn't find a single thing. I wanted to get a cute something for Kennedy but I didn't want to pay $18 for one onesie. Grandma however, didn't mind. She bought her a cute onsesie that says "Love Moab" on it. Gotta brain wash her early! But seriously with Cory and I as parents how could she not love Moab? We also had lunch at the Slick Rock Cafe.
Then we went back to camp and played games then made tin-foil dinners.

Saturday we went for a drive to Picture Frame Arch.






After the drive we got to do something I've been wanting to do in Moab ever since I was little: ROCK CLIMBING!!! I was so excited!! I'm definitely hooked on red rock climbing more than regular climbing. It's awesome!!!





Sunday morning we all wanted to go for a hike before we headed home. We started up Negro Bill Canyon but only went about a mile or so because we didn't have time for the whole hike.

Ryan caught a lizard and let the kids pet it. Well, the ones that wanted to...
And we stopped along the way and let everyone play in the river

It was a pretty successful trip. We had lots of fun. Cory and I are itching to go back and go climbing. Looks like our trips won't be strictly 4-wheeling anymore. Can't wait to go back!

It looks like you all had such a fun time. I especially love that photo with you and all the kids. The one that looks like it is in the shape of a heart with the combination of the red rock formation and the way the bodies and legs are formed into a point-like formation in the front of the photo. :)
