Oh What an adventure

We had quite an adventure this week. It was my children's spring break. Well at least the younger three, unfortunately Alex's was two weeks ago so he couldn't come on our little adventure. We went to Southern Utah to visit my parents. We hiked the petrified sand dunes in Snow Canyon.
Spent a day in Zion's Nation Park. Where the boys hiked Angels Landing. I'm scared of heights and have a bad knee so DD and I did Emerald pools, the river walk, and Weeping Rock.

Thursday we went to Baker Dam where we rode motorcycles and canoed.

Then to top off this wonderful week my parents gave me THIS for my birthday.

Which isn't for a couple of weeks but they didn't know if they would be coming up north between now and my birthday so I got it early. I was squealing and doing the happy dance from the moment I saw the carrying case. Aren't my parents awesome!

  12. Every November, we take the kids up to Zion National Park. It is fall for us! We love those same walks. On my life, I would never be as brave as those boys. Beautiful, isn't it?

    Happy belated birthday!
