Playing catch up!!

We took a trip last month to Moab over Spring Break. We went to Arches National Park and Dead Horse Point. It was so fun! We hiked all day and swam in the evening. The kids had a blast and we were all exhausted by the end of it! Here are a million pics... I couldn't narrow it down any more.

A big, beautiful arch!

Jayden, Kaylen, and Braedy

There are so many cool things to see!!

Another amazing arch!

This is a little embarrassing but I thought this was a miniature rock formation....until I saw another one and another one and then Jayden told me that they are markers to keep people on the trail!! It's a good thing I have a boy in scouts to help me!!


Mase pretending to be a lizard in a little cave.

Jay standing at the bottom of a rock wall we had to climb down. It was a little scary but we made it without any injuries!!

Braedy holding a big rock.

Another awesome for at Arches!!

Mase lost a tooth!! And thanks to my sister-in-law, Lisa, my kids all think that the tooth fairy brings $5 if you lose a tooth on vacation!! The tooth fairy came through!! Thanks, Lis!!

Watch out for cows!! We had to slow down and wait for these guys to get out of the road!!!

Hiking, hiking, and more hiking!!

Stunning view at Dead Horse Point

Brae, Mase, and Jay

Kay Rae and 'Nangla' the owl in the back pack. She thought it was the coolest thing!! 'Nangla' is the souvenir Kaylen picked out. She named her all by herself!

Mase and Brae

The kids thought this crow was so cool and had to have a picture of it!!

The kiddos and me. We didn't want it to end!!

That looks so fun and beautiful. I love your pics of the kids. We went a year ago and have similar pics but it was extremely hard with our kids' ages. Your pics make me want to go give it another try. I think I would need one of those packs that Kaylen was in.

Looks like you guys had a good time. Glad I could help Mase in the tooth department. lol
