The weekend before Spring Break we went to Moab with Andy's boss, Jack, his wife, Lisa, and their son Nathaniel. Since Jack likes to live in luxury we stayed at the Sorrell River Ranch (a resort 20 min outside of Moab). The resort was beautiful. This picture of the Colorado River was taken from our porch. At night there were billions of stars and everything was quiet expect for the river, it was so peaceful!

Here is Luke sitting in front of the cabin that we stayed in. The only downfall of being this close to the river is I wouldn't let the boys come out and play by themselves. I kept having nightmares of one of them falling in, luckily nothing like that happened :).

We really wanted to see Delicate Arch but we knew with Caleb we would never make the 3 mile hike. So we did the 1.5 mile hike to the viewpoint of the arch, it was still an incredible sight. I'm glad we chose the shorter hike because Caleb insisited that I carry him the whole time and wouldn''t let anyone else help. He is a little bit of a momma's boy right now, hopefully that passes soon.

We also drove up to Dead Horse Point. It is so incredible to be drving along and suddenly come to a point where you can't drive any further because there are tall cliffs all around. I had to include this picture of Caleb being "strong." Lately he has made a big deal out of the fact that he is strong, he always says, "Me's big, me's strong." And when he can't do simple things such as opening doors he cries and cries and says, "Me's not strong," it breaks my heart. I think he is really starting to get that he can't do things that everyone else can do his age.

Taking a rest after a long day in the car and hiking around.

When we were walking around Dead Horse Point we saw the biggest spider I have ever seen! This picture does not do it justice. We also thought the spiders back looked like a jack-o-lantern! Ewwwwwwww!

One of the days we were there the boys went on a five hour long razer ride with dad. Luke was too young to go so we had to entertain ourselves. We walked around the town of Moab for awhile and then went back into Arches to do a couple of small hikes. It was fun just me and him.

Our trip was a lot of fun but we were very grateful to come back home!
