Arches National Park

Me, Mark, and our friends Janice and Casey Fehlberg all decided one weekend (3 weeks ago?) to go to Moab! Janice and I had never been, so we were excited. Plus, it was still yucky weather in Provo so we gladly went south :)

On our way down

The men making a fire pit.
 It was so crowded that weekend! We drove around for nearly an hour trying to find a spot to set up our tents.
Beautiful, colorful Janice
 We love the Fehlbergs because they get us to do adventurous things. Mark and I always think about doing adventurous things, but the Fehlbergs just go out and do it! That's why we all get along so well :)
The men gathered old rocks and bricks across the field to make a pit. Looks so professional!

How many layers am I wearing?? A little much? :)

ahh...the fire....Our tin foil dinners were DELISH

That headlamp makes you look extra dreamy.....

Rawr. Nice Casey!

We didn't get to bed til pretty late that night, and for my newly pregnant self, that was quite the feat. I woke up twice to go to the bathroom in the night, but I have no problem with squatting in nature :) As soon as the sun came up, it was HOT. I quickly stripped out of my layers to a tank top and shorts. Bring on the hike!
Packin' up! Beautiful morning.

Nice back side, honey!
Our little tent! We'd never used it before...quite cozy! 

You fit right in! This was the beginning of the hike to Delicate Arch.

Janice looks like an aerobics instructor. A sexy one. 

I just wanted to jump into a pool at this point. But the Arch is a lot bigger than I thought!

Their children will be petite and cute.

Ours will be large. And cute of course.

I didn't know there was a line to take pictures...I guess I cut in front of 10 people. Sorry!

Janice and Casey

Mark and me.

We had an awesome time. It was a quick trip--not even 24 hours. I was lucky enough to throw up just before we left, and just as we got home. Finally after living in Utah for nearly 10 years, I got to visit the place that is stamped on most Utah license plates.


  1. Oh how fun! I love being able to pick up and go!! You look darling! I'm so happy for you guys!!

  2. This looks SO FUN! I wish we were there :( And I think we should have a competition to see who's baby comes out chubbier... because I'm about 98% sure we will take the cake haha! Also, I think it would be really fun/funny to camp together because I can imagine us being really similar campers. lol
