Weekend fun and a bit of laundry :)

The end of last week was Spring Break for the kids so we loaded them up and headed for Castle County to go play with our best friends ( We all lived in IN and then they moved to Salt Lake when we moved to Cedar City)  at Goblin Valley.  

We camped in our new (to us) little tent trailer.  It was a bit cold at night but a propane heater solved that problem.  Camping also means we ate like kings!!  There are few foods that I like more than campfire cooking.  We had Lasagna, Ribs, Scones, Dutch Oven Potatoes, Roasted Pigs in a Blanket, and of course, Smores :)  

We hiked a ton, and the kids were quite the little hikers.  Most of the time it was me dragging in the back.  My favorite hike was this cool slot canyon.  So fun!!!

 And we played a ton!!  Hide and seek in these Hoodoos is such a blast.  Although, there were a few times when the kids were a little to good at hiding.  You could seriously loose someone in here if you aren't careful :)

We enjoyed time with our friends.  Here's one of all the kids minus Baby Jocelyn.  (She was taking a nap :)  And ya, as you can see from their faces, we got quite a lot of sun :)

Aren't family vacations so fun!!!  Thanks again Clint and Becca for inviting us!  We had a blast!!

And now the only bummer of the weekend.  The Monday Aftermath :)
Pin It!


  1. Laundry is always the thing I dread most about getaways ending!

  2. Those photos look like you all had great fun - neat rock formations. I can't understand how you find time to sew or quilt. High five for you!!!

  3. OH, that reminds me of all the years we took our kids camping. We have the best memories. What an awesome place to take the kids.

  4. Loads of fun, especially the 'smores :oD Don't envy the pile of washing mind...

  5. I'm glad you had that great time! That looks a lot like the canyonlands areas that my DH and I toured the summer before my last year of teaching - before we had our really nice 5th wheel. =) Some beautiful places all through there.

  6. OMG looks like you all had a blast!! =D

  7. Looks like so much fun! May your laundry go quickly and quietly. :)

  8. What a wonderful place to go camping. I have to redo my tent trailer, first mice, then birds, so have to get new cushions and scrub it all down.


  9. We get away in our camper at least once a month in the summer (even if it is just local!) And I so agree with two points... 1) We eat a LOT better when we are camping! (why is that?LOL) 2) How in the world do we go through more clothes when we are camping than when we are at home???! It looks like a great time was had by all! I love it!!

    Oh, and NOTHING beats food cooked in a Dutch Oven!! Just sayin!!

  10. Oh man I love Goblin Valley. My friends and I have plans to go down there some time summer, and I am exquisitely excited.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
