Katie hiking in the slott canyon! She loved it she would sing, and gallopp like a horse. Often she would pretend she was a super hero saving someone, it was really cute. Doing some off roading this was so fun. Rob and I and the kids loved 4 wheeling and being in the middle of nowhere. Here we were on our way to Muddy Creak. We decided it was getting late so we turned around before we hit the end but it was so fun to be in the middle of the beautiful surroundings. It was really cool.
Justin and Katie under the tunnel rock (as they called it)!
Isn't it beautiful. The slotts just kept going and going.
Mommy and the kids. This was so fun to get some great one on one with each of the kids.
Eating their breakfast! Justin, Megan and Katie. These three bonded on this trip and it was so fun to watch them help each other and play with one another. We chose to camp on BLM land so no toilets, no running water. Just us and the land. We basically brought it all with us and if it wasn't burned or burried we took it back away with us. This is Rob's kind of camping and we all had fun. We had a great camping spot too. Or so we thought. Until we found the beehive in the tree nearby. We decided if we left them alone they would leave us alone too (that plan worked).
Lot's of lizards. But we didn't chase them. We were told that would make their tails fall off and then they wouldn't be as well adapted. so we just looked at them and watched them. They were everywhere and this one was really big.
We found this cool cave. Rob helped the kids inside and we had a snack break in here. It was fairly large and Rob told the kids about how indians may have lived in here etc. He is quite the story teller at that. They were into it. It was pretty cool.
At the tippy top of the mountain. We kept telling them that that was where we were going and they would repeat it over and over, or ask "dad are we almost to the tippy top" it was cute. And we were so proud of them. They made it! Good job kids.
Justin mom and Katie on the top of the mountain looking down at all the goblins. So cool! The kids had a blast running in and out of them.

I love this photo. He looked so cute. He loved finding creative places to pose for the camera.
Mom with Katie and Justin in the goblins. Always looking for adventure.
Ok so this was a monumentous moment and one of glory for Rob. He Refused to throw away all of his CPA review books and study guides. He had to save a few to bring when we went camping just for this moment. To burn them. It brought him great accomplishment and peace to place that on the fire. He really enjoyed it. Normally we don't believe in burning books but we will admit it sure fealt nice to do this.
