Red sand everywhere!

This last Saturday we went to Moab for the day. Jake used to love going there mountain biking and now we are only 1 1/2 hrs away. The weather was beautiful and sunny. We went on a fun hike at slick rock and had a picnic.
We also climbed up a giant red sand/ dirt hill. Well I shouldn't say "we" as only Jett and Luke made it to the top! It felt like it was straight up and you just sunk down even though the climb was so vertical. The sand was so soft and cool that we finally just kicked off our shoes. Tons of people and their kids just pull over on the side of the road and watch people climb up and then run, roll or jump down. I think the boys made it all the way up 3 times, which was amazing. So fun.

When we got home that night and the boys got out of the car there was literally piles of sand in the car. In the bathtub there is still rings of red sand. On the bathroom floors I keep finding little mounds of the stuff! Our clothes, shoes and socks are still red dirt tinged. But the best is when I just took a load out from the dryer and I open up the door and tons of red dirt just comes pouring out. Can't get rid of the stuff but definitely worth the fun we had!

You are such a good sport to look at the silver lining! I would be banning all future trips to Moab, cuz I'm just mean that way =)
