More From Easter

I'm so behind on blogging. I just haven't been that into it lately. I may need to find a new way to journal my pictures. Until then, here are some more pictures from Easter. We had a lot of fun tie-dying Easter eggs.

The Easter Bunny brought way too many goodies this year. I just don't know what he was thinking! He also brought Skye an Ariel doll. She had been asking for one.
She didn't get to go on any Easter egg hunts this year because she was on a little mini vacation with Lance the day before so luckily, the Easter Bunny hid eggs all around our yard for her to find.
It was pretty chilly that morning. We bundled Jack up and took him out for the fun!

It was actually a really fun Easter. I do want to add pictures of the eggs we dyed. They turned out pretty cool. Someday I'll get around to it!

Moab Day Two

We started our morning fairly early with a good breakfast at the hotel, then headed off for our first hike of the day--Delicate Arch. I have several pictures of it here, but it is so impressive (especially with the snow-capped La Sal Mountains as a backdrop), how can you not?
It was the perfect morning for this hike! We got out before there were too many other people, it was a cool morning, and just felt so refreshing!

There were a couple of these little guys scampering around.
This is the bowl beneath Delicate Arch. This is where Lance and I ended up on a night hike we did when we got off the trail. We saw its shadow then, too, only it was a moon shadow! So cool!

Another view of Delicate Arch.
After our three mile Delicate Arch hike, we hiked the one mile Windows trail. This is looking at Turret Arch, another arch on the hike.

I think this is the south window. I felt so small looking up at it!
Balanced Rock in the distance.
This is the last short hike we went on to see Double Arch. It was really cool!
This was such a wonderful, little getaway. It was very good for my soul. Thanks to my friend for going! She is so amazing! I just have to say how cool she is. I'm glad she's stuck by me despite the fact that we are different in some ways. Some people seem to think you can only be friends with others who are just like you, but I think that's ridiculous! It would certainly be very boring! Having friends who are different than you make things like a girls weekend away so much more fun and interesting!
