Trippin #3 = Grandkids

Memorial Day Weekend

What a great weekend we had!  Rick & I took our 3 oldest
Grandkids and headed off for Moab, UT.  We camped at the
Moab Valley RV Resort and started a fun weekend adventure.
We loved being able to spend some quality time with the kids, bedtime
was always interesting...

Our first adventure was to go to Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.  It's about a 3 hour drive from Moab.
Along the way we had a little excitement with Connor.
He needed to use his breathing machine and it needed electricity.
In the middle of nowhere, Grandpa got creative.

Mesa Verde was so fun.  We saw Indian dancers and we hiked to the 600 year old ruins. We even were
able to climb into a ceremonial kiva.


We spent a day exploring one of our favorite places, Arches National Park.
We climbed and hiked around Double Arch
 and looked across to Delicate Arch.

We also saw lots of our state flower, the Sego Lily...

The kids were tired and ready to go back to camp and I talked them into
one more short hike to Sand Arch.  It ended up being their favorite...

After a fun day exploring the beautiful red rocks of Arches Park we stopped at
the Indian petroglyphs on Potash Road.  So cool....
then we went back to camp and had dinner
and let the kids swim.  The camp had a giant chess board that
the kids loved!  How much fun can 5 people have?

After a fun weekend it was time to go home.  Always sad when you're having fun...but Mom's & Dad's were waiting for their munchkins....
