The warm spring weather plus an invitation from our friends was more than enough to entice us out on our first family camping trip! We went out to Cedar Mesa in southeast Utah for a few days of camping, hiking and sight seeing.
Here are a few photos from our adventure:
We had a fabulous time and, since we were outside ALL THE TIME, Mia was quite content. Plus she loved playing with and observing her two little friends that came with us, not to mention having their cool parents around. Honestly, the sleeping didn’t go so well for us…Mia slept ON me most of the time and on the first night woke up so frequently that I don’t think any of us slept more than a couple of hours. In fact, I was about ready to drive home the next day. But since we were already out there and were having so much fun during the daytime hours, we decided to stay (who needs sleep?). The second night was much easier, perhaps because I mentally prepared myself for minimal sleep, and then she actually did sleep more. (Thankfully, she went right back to sleeping through the night upon our return home. Whew!)
Sorry, dear daughter, that we made you wait until you were 18 months old to enjoy a few days of sleeping in a tent! So glad you enjoyed it!
And, thanks to the Weather Gods for cooperating: 40s to 70s and minimal wind (especially for the spring). It started raining dirt today (yes, dirt…albeit wet dirt), then just raining, then hailing and finally snowing. Temps dropped pretty quickly down to the 20s. Brrrrr….but thanks for the sneak peak.
Now, back to building a chicken coop. Those girls are getting big.
