Moab Trip

I can't believe I forgot to write about our Moab/Arches trip in March. It was one of the highlights of our year so far! This is very pic heavy because Arches is so beautiful and my kids are pretty cute, especially when sleeping :)

We loved our carriers on this trip. Jacob napped on and off and both kids were content for hours on end while hiking. Plus, we were able to do hikes (most of the ones we did, actually) that we would have NEVER been able to do if Joshua was walking and Jacob was in our arms.

Sleeping jacob. I started to use the sleeping hood after this because my arm was getting so tired holding his head. Jacob normally doesn't like it, but he was so tired he decided it was ok.

Joshua and Daddy





Joshua often fell asleep in the car between hikes. He was missing naps and staying up late. He was one tired guy but was happy the whole time he was in the carrier while hiking.

We switched off carrying the backpack. It wasn't too bad carrying that and a child. It actually balanced you out better.






Our hotel had a pool which was so nice and warm. Yes, we stayed in a hotel. Camping with kids does not sound appealing at all!

Silly Joshua
