Our Ultimate Vacation Spot

Justin and I both love love love Moab. I've been going there since I was little, and my family and I took Justin for his first time this year, and needless to say, he loved it. So right after we got back from the annual 4-Wheel Drive Trip, I convinced Justin that we needed a Jeep. So we got this bad boy....

So Justin has been itching to go back since we got it, which was in April. Or May. Sometime around there. So, originally we planned on going to Disneyland with the Greenwood's, which I was STOKED for, but after putting together all of the costs..... it wasn't going to happen. So, we asked Justin's parents if they wanted to go to Moab with us. They just got an X-Terra, so it was only logical. We went to Gemini Bridges, Arches (Delicate Arch), Secret Spire, Cliffhanger Arch, and other places. It was a lot of fun! We went to a few overlooks, and by all means, I can't remember everywhere that we went. Either way, it was all pretty and I loved it all. Here are more pictures -->
This is at Arches

This is Long Canyon Road, which was a wee bit rough, but has an awesome rock that you drive under, as shown above.

We definitely had a lot of fun. We got to spend a lot of time with Steve and Ann, which is always nice. We got some shirts and what nots while we were there.

And then when we got home, Justin had to wash his trophy off. It made him a little sad. And also cost $12. Honestly.

So that was our trip, in a nutshell.

THEN! On Saturday....

GASP! What could this be?!

Oh my land! What could live here?

Oh it's Auto! My guinea pig!

Yes, I got a guinea pig. He is super adorable. And very camera shy. He was kind of freaking out that I had a camera in his face... so maybe I'll get some more pictures of him later, when he's a little more comfortable. It's funny, because I got him on Saturday, and then BAM! Monday night, Christy gets a puppy. It's a great week for this household! I don't have any pictures of her Shorkie puppy yet, but don't you worry. I will.

So... I took some NyQuil, and I can tell it's starting to work, because I feel a bit like a zombie, and my eyes aren't focusing. So, I shall say goodnight.

Oh time passes.

I feel like a lot has happened, but I'm not sure that's true. Let me see.... there was a fire.... conference.... cabin......... haircut....... new baby.

I just don't know where the time goes. But here's some photographic proof....

Jeanette Maxwell did my hair. And I love it.

This was the sunset on the way to the cabin. Cool, eh?

Nighttime shot. A little smoke in the distance.

Auggie likes to poke his head out the window whilst we drive.

This is on the way to see the baby haha note the joy in his face.
He really was excited, I just don't think that he knew what to do or what to expect. But when we got there, Jack said, "When Heavenly Father sent her, she was zero, and this big!" -cupping his hands together like he was holding water- "And now she's here, and she's none years!"
Hahahaha I love it. It's such an innocent thought process.

Mom and baby are doing great. They've been home since yesterday!
