Fun Weekend Trip to Moab

What an amazing weekend! First it was so nice to get away and be outside in shorts. The weather was perfect. The first day we drove to Goblin Valley and walked around all of the goblin rocks.

Next we hiked a slot canyon called Little Wildhorse Canyon. Then we drove to moab and checked into our hotel and went swimming at the pool. The kids couldn't get enough of the waterslide. Well, actually I loved it too and even got in trouble from the front desk for not going feet first.

The Second Day we hiked up Negro Canyon to a natural bridge. It was long 5 mile hike but it was so gorgeous. Green trees, red sand, and red rock canyons with a stream running through it. Then we went back to the hotel for another fun swim!

During sunset we drove to Dead Horse State Park and the Canyonlands National Park. What a
view. We have our own Grand Canyon.

Third Day was Arches National Park. Delicate Arch is a 3 mile hike. It is uphill the entire way! We made it though and WOW it was worth it! Now back home and back to work, but we all needed a little fun vacation and warm weather.

Austin's Baby Blessing

Austin was blessed by his dad today. It was such a special day and we had a great time with family and friends. Even a little basement flooding couldn't ruin a good day! Austin spent the day spoiled by mom, aunts, and grandmas. We love you and are so glad you are getting big, strong, and healthier every day.
