It was not fun to get up this morning. All of last week was our Spring Break from school and we tried to pack it as full as possible. It was all worth it, but hence our dragging today as we try to get back into our routines.
We took our kids to visit the last two National Parks in Utah that we hadn’t been to yet: Canyonlands and Arches. As you can see, they were pretty spectacular.
Dead Horse Point, Colorado River
Island in the Sky, Canyonlands
Double Arch, Arches. Top picture is Delicate Arch and second pic is Balanced Rock, also at Arches. Sorry for the travelogue today, but I figured since the scenery was unique enough you wouldn’t hate it too much. It was good to get away, as always, spend time with the kids, get our exercise, and avoid distractions. Besides a few storm clouds (which made for dramatic skies) the first day, we had perfect sunshine and warm weather.
Then we came home to spend the weekend with family visiting from out of state, watch the LDS General Conference, and celebrate this guy’s 7th birthday. He fell asleep in my lap Sunday afternoon and I tried to soak it up as much as possible, because those moments are only going to get more rare… *sniff* Also I took advantage of the chance to take his picture without him making weird faces at me or running away altogether.
I did get some sewing done during our drive – I finally finished this paper piecing project that I started in Katy’s class at the Sewing Summit. It only took me a few long-distance road trips to complete. It’s called Spring Carnival and you can find the tutorial and pattern on Katy’s tutorial page. I love it – now I need to decide it’s destiny.
In other sewing fun, Craftsy is having a sale on all of their classes – up to 75% off! So if you’ve had your eye on one or more of the plethora of classes they have, now’s a good time to sign up.
And now, I’m off to try and catch-up on all things computer related and to stop eating leftover Easter candy. Wish me luck.
