Craving Sunshine

The rest of the husbands planning was to take me camping for our anniversary.
although we went down south chasing the sun... the dessert has wickedly cold evenings. I wore thermals, PJ's, wool socks, sweatshirt, fleece, hat, mittens, 15 degree sleeping bag, and 3 blankets on top to keep me warm. But getting up in the middle of the night was possibly torture!

Yep. this is perhaps a perfect image of what i looked like in the morning... (and don't even ask about the hair under that hat! It gave the husband a good laugh, and possibly resembled ruthies...)

and we were off for our hike in the sunshine! The pup had a home in this here backpack (which he promptly bailed out of-- but which he later came to appreciate after hiking a few miles and getting sufficiently pooped!)
Bobby's first time in a slot canyon: little wild horse canyon






considering the broken state of the camera, we were having fun taking "blind" pictures and hoping they captured some of the grandeur of this place.
after sufficiently exhausting ourselves in the canyon, we spent a few more minutes in the sunshine and took a peek at the goblins in the valley.

Even though you didn't get to see much sun it still sounds fun. I love camping and hiking!

How do you find these places? I would like to go see things like this, but I have no idea how to find them...

I think you guys take some pretty impressive pictures even though you don't know what you're going to get. Might be a new photography technique you could market! Stinson is so adorable, FYI.

K, so here's the deal. Friday after work you and Bobby pack your toothbrushes, get the pup, hop in the car and mosey on down here to WARM Las Vegas. We will make you whole wheat pancakes, fresh strawberries, take the dogs to the park, ride bikes, watch conference in 3D [okay that was a lie...no 3D], and stay up all night playing board games. Eh? Whatdya say? I'll even throw in a jumprope or a new pair of socks to sweeten the deal [k, that was a lie too. I don't have a jumprope to give you]. Please! I need Megan in my life!
