Sand Hallow/Zions/Stg

We have been trying to plan a family camp out since the last time we went which was down in Bear lake 2 years ago. We haven't been very successful until this year when at the last minute, everyone was able to go and things just worked out perfectly. Baker's decided to go with or without us and I guess that was just the extra push we needed for the rest of us to go.

We camped in Sand Hollow which was a really cool place. The camp spots were a little small, but we made it work. The kids enjoyed hot dogs and s'mores and I enjoyed just sitting around the fire. Camping with out a fire just wouldn't be camping.

The second night we all hung out around the campfire with my mom and sister who were able to join us the second night. 

We couldn't think of any scary storied to tell, so we made scary faces instead.
Can you tell who is who?
Pretty scary, right?
But we got a better one of the entire group.

The following day we headed up to Zions.

The weather was pretty perfect and the kids loved hiking and playing in the water. When we sat down at the lodge, the wind started to pick up and didn't stop until we went home 2 days later.

We finished off our trip at Pioneer Park aka: The Rock Park. The kids loved playing on all the rocks and going through the crack. Luke and Kat were even able to squeeze through.

And before going home, I shopped just a little tiny bit with Taleesha which is always a must when in Stg. 

The trip was a huge success and we are already planning our next family camp out. We are thinking either Goblin Valley or Moab, but we'll see. Hopefully it's not another 2 more years until we get around to it...
