Dino land

We went on a random little vaca with just the 4 of us at the beginning of October.
In the month of September we (meaning me, the kids, and Jess) talked and learned about dinosaurs.
We ended with a fab visit to Vernal, Utah.
Dinosaur Land. ;)

Dad played alligator as the kids jumped across the beds.

We walked around the great town of Vernal and ate at a local restaurant
 for dinner.

The following day we visited the quarry:

And we also visited the local dinosaur museum:

We had a fun little getaway. 
Highlights from our trip:
*The drive. It was beautiful. The kids watched Cinderella over and over and me and Danny got to talk uninterrupted for 3 hours. {That never happens!}
*Swimming at the hotel.
*Eating at Cafe Rio for lunch. {Who would've thought they would have a Cafe Rio in Vernal??}
*The kids excitement over all of the dinosaurs and bones.

Lake Powell

I love Lake Powell!!

Highlights from our 2012 trip:
*The amount of food I ate.
*Watching the little boys wrestle on top of the house boat.
*The beautiful weather and scenery.
*Watching the kiddo's fish with aunt Jess, play in the sand, and throw rocks for hours.
*Hank's afternoon nap. ;)
*Jumping off the house boat.
*Night time movies on top of the house boat.
*Watching my little Whit play with the girls having the time of her life.
*Driggs and Hank. They are buds.
*The treasure hunt Jess made for the kids.
*Spending time with family. I can't think of anything I'd rather do more than spend time with them. They are our greatest blessing.

On the way home we stopped at some cave thing. (I can't remember the name of it and I'm too lazy to look it up.) It was kinda cool.
