Sun, Sand, and Bocce Ball!

What do you get when you get Patrick, Emily, Isaac, Eve, Esther, Mom Darby, Ryan, Sarah, Aaron, Dine, Jenny, Alyson, Joseph, and Kirsten together for a weekend of AWESOMENESS!!!!


We all got together this past weekend for a family campout in Snow Canyon,  near St. George.

If anyone wants to camp out in a way more personable location than Zion's National Park, go here and choose campsite 16a.


We all drove down on Friday and spent Saturday hiking around. Here's the overview.

Everyone, except for Emily who was suffering from jet lag, climbed all over the big rock you see on the right hand side. It was a lot of fun.

Saturday evening was loafing and bocce ball around the campsite.

 and then the drive home. Esther found her own ways to amuse herself and Eve just adopted the thousand yard stare.

WOw, how fun!!! My goodness Emily, you are one tough mama, I would have spent the entire trip in a tent sleeping! We will have to make it a point to go there sometime. Emily, we should plan a camping trip up here in our mountains, I hear there are some choice spots. Can't wait to see the post about your Euro trip!
