Back to the Baby Posts

These really cute pictures have been building up, so I just have to post a couple.

I know this makes two Zion posts in a row, but I didn't get to go on the Angels Landing trip so...
It was nice to have William, Steph and Paisley come and stay with us the first part of March. Although the pictures are only from Zion, we also got to play in the park and have lots of fun outside. I kind of messed up the week with a little "accident" but I will let Angela post that one if she dares. These pictures come from the Riverside Walk in Zion, nice stroll by the river with the strollers up to the exit of the Narrows. Zion is a different place in the winter time with no leaves on the trees and not so many tourists, I kind of like it this time of year.

A Hiking We Will Go

Lindy came down last weekend and forced us outside to enjoy the sunshine. Of course, she had to twist our rubber arms to get us to do it - and bribe us with some secret recipe trail mix. We hiked the Angel's Landing trail in Zion National Park. When I say we, I mean...



And me.
(Of course, I'm not cute enough to have just a shot of me - I have to have my trusty sidekick to make it worthwhile to look at my picture.)

We met the chipmunk for lunch, enjoyed the view and hung on to the chains for dear life. No, honestly, it wasn't that bad even though we became famous overnight just for taking Eliza to the top. She impressed all the other hikers and loved every minute of it!! She laughed the whole way up the chained section and back down again. Then she slept. After all, being that cute is hard work.

We also ventured out to do a little climbing, but our poor sore muscles and the freezing wind didn't make us want to stay very long.

Eliza could have stayed all day if we'd only let her eat the rocks. We're so mean, I know.
