Well another Moab trip has came and gone with no serious damage to children or vehicles!! Phew!!!
Just a few fury teeth and more red sand in the cracks of the Land Cruiser!!
The day back is always the hardest. I really don't enjoy unpacking everything and getting things back to 'normal' but someone's gotta do it right?!?
So I'll do what I can and Dru can do the rest.
The first night Yuki didn't do so well. So Dru and I were pretty tired.
The first day though, she did excellent. So another child who doesn't mind the 4 wheeling. We're pretty lucky cause I think a 6 month old could've made the trip that much worse!! But she's Dru's child alright and loved it. I think because she's so buzy and loves being a part of the action, it was right up her alley!!
The kids always have tons of fun. I'm going to have to re-train Masaru not to just pull his pants down and pee anywhere he wants to now. He thinks the trees love it so I'm afraid I might catch him trying to pee on our trees in the yard or, even worse, pee on a neighbours tree!!
I'll have to keep an eye on him for the next few days.
It was a huge party for the children and they all played well together.
Kristin and I went to a hotel the next day while the boys 4 wheeled and watch conference. It was amazing and it wasn't until the last talk that Pres. Monson did that I finally was able to see and feel him to be my prophet. I'm glad I watched it. Sunday afternoon was AMAZING. It was my personal fav. I didn't see Sat though. So if anyones taped it, let me know.
It was also nice to have a shower!! A shower never felt so good.
We got Yuki into her own personal space and she slept like a log the next two nights. So in turn, so did Dru and I.
Monday it rained so the kids and I stayed in the pop up and read books and played. It was fun. But it stopped and we were able to pack up and come back.
I think Masaru had the best time. He talks constantly about Dusty's jeep. Every white jeep we see is "Dusty's jeep". I didn't know he cared so much. So on the last day of the trip he finally got a chance to ride in Dusty's jeep. He was in seventh heaven and Dusty was really good about it. It's the favourite car, by far!! The kids all fight over who's going to sit in the back of 'Dusty's jeep' and the most stubborn kids usually win!!
It was a great trip!!
I'm not sure if we'll get to go again before law school.
