We saw this scripture on the back of a Jeep during our Moab trip last week. The really pressing question is how I didn't know this existed?! Gospel doctrine about loving Moab?! Come on!! We have a new family scripture. *wink*
It's October which means there's a 90% chance we went to Moab for UEA break. And we did. And like always, it was awesome!
The kids had a BLAST and surprisingly slept really well. The first night always sucks, but after that they were little gems, minus Brynlie always popping out of bed promptly at 7:00 a.m. It's a good thing she's cute. They also practiced their gorilla warfare skills hiding in the sage brush as well as sun-tanning their butt cracks because the pants I packed them were all too small, so whenever they crouched down, they exposed epic plumbers crack.
We didn't take the Jeep this trip.
**moment of silence**
It was hard. But we have plans to reconcile come spring.
The first morning there I woke up and went for a run. Running in Moab is pristine! Minus it being a little warm. I also used my trail shoes which rocked on the dirt road. But my foot really hurt after running and I had to bag my plans to run every morning while camping, sadly. I didn't want to make it worse.
And this hike Kennedy learned about cairns, which she decided should be called marches, and she pointed them out every time she saw one.
"There's another march!"
"There's a little baby march! Oh!!!"
"That march is HUGE!"
You get the idea. It was pretty cute to us, since she's our child.
Another self timer fail.
Next up was Canyonlands.
Alright, moving on...
Saturday we tried another hike.
We drove to picture frame arch and had lunch and climbed into the arch and played.
This family picture fail happened because the iPhone was set far away and running and getting in perfect photo position never happened.
We had a great time because it's pretty hard not to have a great time in the greatest place on earth. Until we meet again, Moab!
