In No Particular Order...

I'm too lazy to try to blog this in order, so here are some highlights for our Memorial Day camping trip:

Evidence that I was actually there. Kirk set the camera timer and balanced the camera on a ledge. Not the best pic, but at least we're all in it. My favorite pic of our camp site. We pulled off the road that leads from Kanosh into Fishlake National Forest and found this free place to camp. It was absolutely beautiful, plus we had ample shade and personal access to the river.

The last day of our adventure, we met my parents and Jack in Little Moab (by Utah Lake) for some motorized fun. Look closely and you'll notice Adam is driving the dune buggy my dad built. Yeah, it's even running. He had such a blast.

Once the boys warmed up to the motorcycles, they had a blast riding with Dad, Uncle Jack, and Grandpa. Alex even went for a ride with Grandma once.
I didn't get any pics of anyone actually IN the hot springs. Oh well. We went to these hot springs. They were warm and fun.

Adam's favorite part of the trip was an unexpected adventure. We were lost on the way to the hot springs, and we came across a couple of dust devils. We stopped the truck and let one blow right through us. It was pretty cool.
This is a pic of the boys in the tent trailer, both of them on Alex's bed. One night, though, we came in after the boys had fallen asleep to find no Alex in his bed. We looked around and found him sound asleep in our sleeping bags, with his head on my pillow. It was so cute!

We camped right on a river. Adam was scared of it for about 5 minutes, but then we couldn't keep him out of it. He and Alex would have been content to just throw rocks and scoop water for three straight days.

I think this is the sweetest picture ever. Just look how much that little boy loves his dad.

The lava fields were amazing! There were chasms and caves and tunnels for every age and ability. My little boys had a blast, but I think big boys - ok, adult boys - would have even more fun here. We'll definately go back for more exploring!
