Timp Caves & Moab

We've had a few fun weekends this last month. We went to Timpanogos Caves with the Farish family one weekend and then to Moab with the Rees family the next.
Timp Caves was cool inside, but the mile and a half hike straight uphill was not fun. The picnic and nap afterwards were great though! My dad sacrificed some sleep and got up at 6am to go stand in line for tickets to the caves since it was a free day at all the National Parks. Oh and I could not get the stupid camel pack to work during the entire hike. James figured out when we got home that it was locked and all we had to do was lift up the cap a little. Erg.
We went to Moab to meet up with James' older sister, Kristy, and her family who were driving from St. Louis to Arizona to go to a family reunion and stopping for a day in Moab. While we were there James rode his bike on slick rock, we ran and jumped down a huge sandhill, and hiked to the Delicate Arch (another mile and a half journey, but this time not so hard). I really enjoyed the king bed at the La Quinta and eventhough Jimmer usually hates his carseat, he did great.
