So Quiet

Yup, things have been a little on the quiet side the last few days.  That's because we were camping and you just don't have internet connections in the great outdoors.   Friday morning we loaded the kids up and headed up the mountain to some family property for some good old camping family fun.

We love camping!!  Can you tell by the smiles??

The girls taking a break from our "clearing a trail" activity aka work project.

And if it is one thing that will always be a guarantee, it is that we end taking half of the dirt from the mountain home ;)  (But if I am being honest, I get a kick out of the dirty faces, so cute!!!)

And after a long day of play, I love to take a moment and just enjoy the beauty of nature at sunset.

 Talk about a view.  Just stunning.  You can actually see Zion National Park along the horizon :)

And lest you think I didn't manage to squeeze any quilting into the weekend . . .

I practiced a little free motion quilting designs while the kids and I enjoyed some sidewalk chalk time.

And, with the help of my cutting mat caddy, I managed to cut out the pieces for a new quilt while the younger girls took a nap.

So that's what we have been up to :)

And now I am off to widdle down the massive pile of laundry from the weekend ;)  Gotta love that campfire smell!!
Pin It!

  9. how absolutely fun. I love the pictures. And those dirty faces. Love it. We used to go tent camping all the time also. I loved how the kids would literally dig into nature and explore and discover. Some of the most happy times as a family. We really had a chance to connect and grow.
