The kids were off 1/2 day on Thursday (but since we helped out at the book fair we didn't get home until normal time anyways!) and all day Friday and so we (I) decided to take advantage of it - and the warm weather. We didn't get in much camping this summer and so I thought it would be fun to camp in Moab - since I knew it would be pretty warm there still. Ben didn't come and so it was all me - well, me and four kids. :)
After our hike we went out to dinner (yes, I cheated!). I then tried 4 different pay-phones to try and call Ben (per his request :), but to no avail. Apparently there is no use for working pay-phones anymore. :)
We got back to our campsite and had a good evening:
The morning went well and a little after 9 we headed out for our next hike-of-the-day. This was a new one, to Corona Arch.
We then pretty much drove home! So we had a really great camp-out. It wasn't perfect nor without frustrations (why oh why can't my kids listen to me the first time I ask them something - it's pretty much all I want for Christmas) or tantrums and tears. But I'm super glad we did it!
