Hole in the Rock and Capitol Reef

To celebrate his graduation, Tyson wanted to do something outdoors, so we ended up going down to the Capitol Reef National Park area in southern Utah. It's around the Grand Staircase/Escalante National Park. We went with Tyson's sister Nikki and her family - it was So fun to get out of town again and just be outside in the beautiful weather!! We left Friday afternoon after graduation and stayed in a hotel in Torrey, UT. The next day went to Hole in the Rock - a crazy steep drop-off that the Mormon Pioneers lowered their wagons into to cross over into a valley - wich is now Lake Powell. Then we hiked through some slot canyons - sorry you had to sit in the truck the whole time Nikki - she's having a baby in June and there was NO way her cute belly would have fit through those things - I'm surprised I fit in some of it!! I was also kindly reminded that I really don't have as much energy as I did before now that I'm pregnant! Hey at least I have an excuse for feeling so out of shape:) The next day we drove through some awesome canyons in Capitol Reef and did a little hiking. I have to say - bumpy roads (or trails I guess) do not mix well with being pregnant!!! Sorry for all the pictures;)

Tyson tried and tried to catch one of these little buggers - they are SO fast!!

I think Alex had a little too much fun:)

Hike to the slot canyons - we had to walk through a wash to get there and Tyson is showing how high the water had gotten - good thing it wasn't raining when we were there!
Entrance to the slot canyons
I can't even tell you how excited these two were for this hike! Ethan liked to call it the squishy canyons:)

This was by the first Very tight spot - it really made all of us think - am I????
So fun, but crazy - tight squeezes, interesting climbs, droppoffs and sand - Everywhere!
Tyson thought this cactus flower was so cool - it was only a little bigger than a quarter

How long to you think those pants will stay clean??

This little stream was coming right out of the hill!!
Alex and Ethan - just a little entertainment for our lunch break!
Yeah - good thing they had some extra clothes to change into:)

just a little nap
I think Alex got a little tired on this 2 mile hike - he practically ran the whole first mile!!!





Tyson's Graduation!! May 2, 2008

He also scored in the nations top 95% on his AC Exam (Associated Contractors Exam) and was less than a point away from graduating cum laude - don't they round up for those things??

Happy May Day - It's snowing - Again!

I just think it's funny how weird the weather has been lately! The other day it was in the 80's and I actually got a small sunburn - today it's snowing. Anyway, here's some pictures I took today.



Tyson's new work truck

Tyson finally got a work truck a few weeks ago - it's a Wonderful gas saver - since we don't have to pay for it!!
