Coral Pink Sand Dunes- Out of order- did this at the end of our trip

T and H enjoying running up and down the dunes. The sand was sooooo soft!
S couldn't get enough of the sand.
S was full of sand but it was well worth it. It was very fun.
J and A taking a moment at the Coral Dunes.
A, Uncle N, T and H jumped down the dunes. By the time they climbed and jumped down they were all out of breath.

S and A's birthday party

Here is S for his 2nd birthday. We celebrated it in Mount Carmel. We stayed in the trailer for a week while we visited Zions, Bryce Canyon and the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. This is S's gift. He wasn't sure what to do at first.
Here is S and H. As you can see S learned what to do in no time.
S's is enjoying opening his other gifts from mom and dad and from Nana and Papa.
A had to celebrate his birthday with S this year. This was A's BIG 40th birthday! What a bash!
S was so excited that his birthday was Lightening McQueen. He watches this movies multiple times a week.

Another beautiful view of Bryce.

Zions National Park and Grand Canyon

Papa/Dad showing us his sexy man pose while swimming in the river at Zions. It was so hot there everyone was taking a dip.
The family took a hike up the mountain in Zions. This hike was almost straigt up and you had to cross a man made bridge across the edge of the cliff. Papa doesn't look it, but his was scared to death. The fence behind us was right on the ledge of a cliff that went to the bottom of the canyon. We were up very high. It was really pretty!
S was making new friends wherever he could. This little boy and S were running around and climbing this tree. This tree was huge, it shaded all the grass in front of the Lodge.
H and T on another hike we took up to what is called Weaping Rock. It was pretty cool, right out of the rock came water. They estimate that the water that is coming out is about 1400 yrs old.
This is Nana/Mom taking a break on the long hike/walk that leads you to the bottom part of the narrows. On this trek is where we went swimming.

Trip to Zions National Park and the Grand Canyon

This is out front of the Lodge in Zions, it was so pretty there and very hot! We ate pizza here two days in a row.
Papa/Dad waiting for the shuttle bus. He was taking a picture of J while taking a picture of him.
Uncle N and S enjoying the hot bus ride through Zions. S thought it was pretty cool.
S and J playing around in the river. S's diaper was so full of water that it was falling off so he went in the buff. People thought it was hillarious. S loved the freedom!
Uncle N, S and T trying to get off the rock and back to shore. Wasn't as easy as getting on.
