I know I'm a couple days late, but we just got back from vacation Tuesday, and I had to sort through pictures before I could complete this post. We had a great week and enjoyed every bit of our time away. It really feels like summer now, and it's so nice to have the break from work and school to just hang with family.
Enough said! Here are last week's pictures:
Day 162- Saturday, 6/11/11
Today's swim meet was our first away meet so it was fun to have a change of scenery and see how other meets are run. Here is Justin ready for his freestyle race at the blocks.
There is an army of Hero Factory creatures taking over the playroom. Justin's goal is to collect them all, and I'd say he's well on his way.
It's been a crazy day tying up last minute details for our trip tomorrow. I'm finally getting around to packing and trying to figure out how we're going to manage to take everything we need for this trip.
And we're off! It was a big travel day. We flew from Sacramento into Las Vegas and then immediately drove through Nevada, part of Arizona, and into Utah where we stopped in Springdale just outside of Zion National Park to stay for the night.
This morning we took the shuttle into the park and explored until lunch. We pretty much got to see everything except the back country, and then headed out on a 3 hr drive to Bryce Canyon Valley where we met up with my folks to stay and visit for the next few days.
It's gorgeous here and the weather is perfect. We hiked around Kodachorme Basin today. Here are my 3 boys with their cousins they are meeting for the first time--and yes, all boys! It's great to have my sister and her family here with us for a couple days.
We made it into Bryce Canyon National Park today and hiked most of the day. One of my main goals for the trip was to hike through a slot canyon and here we are headed into "Wall Street" which was an amazing journey. My dad is a great tour guide as he knows the area well and all the best spots and sites to see.
That's it for now.
Our vacation pictures will continue next week and of course this is just a small sample of the near 500 pictures I took!
Thanks for stopping by.
