For a little getaway during fall break, Matthew and I decided we'd take a little gander at Arches National Park. I made my first tin foil dinner - delicious! We froze during the night - our tent has an open top that is awesome during the summertime. It has a top that goes on it, but for this trip we didn't put the top on while we camped and suffered because of it. We found the only way to stay warm was to cuddle close to each other. It's always fun to cuddle, but not when you're trying to sleep on hard ground. One of those fun camping adventures! We did a six mile hike and got to see Landscape arch, Navajo Arch, Partition Arch, the fallen Wall Arch (the remains of it), Pine Tree Arch, Tunnel Arch, and Double O Arch. We ate lunch under the Navajo Arch. While we were eating lunch, I had four pieces of bread all lathered up with Majo. I bent down to get some cheese and one of the pieces of bread fell majo side down on my shoe!! Hee hee! My shoe was gooped in Majo! Part of it got in the dirt. Matthew scraped off what dirt he could then offered to eat that piece. We got a good laugh out of that one. We were exhausted after our hike! We wanted to also see Delicate Arch. We saw it from a distance, but didn't have enough energy to hike to it. It was fun to see all the arches! We sure love camping! Let us know when you want to come with us!

Crochet Time!

About 6 weeks ago I spent the afternoon with my mom and she taught me how to crochet. I'm finding that I love it! I am very much a beginner and am still learning the jargon, how to start and end a project and so on. I crocheted this baby bib for Brittany (my sister-in-law) and their baby Lincoln for his baby blessing. Now I'm working on some baby booties that are way intense. My mom is definitely helping me figure out those! My mom and I went to the General Relief Society meeting together at the conference center. While we were waiting for it to start we were both crocheting! Like mother like daughter. Thanks mom!
