A Little R & R in Moab

While most of you were in the rain and snow, we were in 80 degree weather! For Memorial Day weekend, we headed to Moab Utah with the Hinckley side of the family. It's the most beautiful and funnest place on earth. Here we are at a beautiful water hole. It is about a 1 mile hike in the hot 80 degree weather, but way worth it in the end:) While we were hiking to the water hole life-flight came and took a girl away who broke both of her ankles jumping into the water. Ouch! Her friend pushed her and she landed in shallow water. I was nervous because Randy jumped....he is ok. If you ever come here....NO PUSHING!

Racing to the top of this red sand mountain. Aunt Cali won!

Grandpa Hink and Brody. Grandpa Hink is an amazing Grandpa and father. He always finds time to play with all his grand kids one-on-one. I love this picture btw!

We went JEEPING! This is why we love Moab so much. It is very relaxing until you come to an obstacle then your nerves start to kick in. The thrill you get when you make it to the top is incredible! It is amazing to be out in the open red rock and see just how beautiful this world is. Amazing!

Cute thing: While jeeping we stopped for lunch in this red rock cave and while we were eating Brock starts crying. He looked up at everyone and said "I had a accident, I pooped my pants." It was the cutest thing. I guess for a 3 year old when you know there is no bathroom, you just go:) Good thing I brought an extra pair of undies.

We went to a park and had a little to much fun:) Can't you just eat little Brody up? Brock is a curious and hungry little boy. He decided to eat mulberries from a tree. It stained his cloths and body. A few minutes later he was playing catch with aunt Heather when he turned his head and the ball smacked him right on the nose. Poor thing. Needless to say, Brock came home looking great:)

We went swimming. Brock loved it. He just stands in one spot and jumps up and down giggling, too cute. This was Brody's first time swimming, and guess what? He LOVED it. He was cooing up a storm and splashing his hands in the water smiling:) Way too cute! We love our boys!

We hiked up the red rock to see some dinosaur tracks. Way cool.

On Top of the World! Some of the Hinckley family. Thank you to everyone for the great time and memories. It was a BLAST!

Look Who's Sitting Up

Growing Old

A week ago Randy, the boys and I were driving in the truck. We were stopped at a red light, when I saw this cute old couple crossing the street hand in hand. The husband looked quite healthy while the wife looked a little frail and fragile. As I watched them slowly cross the street tears filled my eyes and then I was bawling hysterically. Randy looked at me with big eyes and asked "ahhh...why are you crying?" I told him I was excited to grow old with him and hopefully be as cute as that old couple. We are coming up on our 11 year anniversary. The time as flown, but I look forward to many years to come with him and our boys. I can't believe I am saying this, but I look forward in getting old and walking hand in hand with my Rand:)

a "DAY" in the Sun, F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!

The weather here in Utah has been crazy! Not a lot of sunshine, mostly rain. So when the weather is good we are definitely out in the sun. One afternoon we decided to go and have a picnic at Liberty Park. It was a blast!

Brock could hardly wait to get his feet/body wet. When he was playing he said "mom, this is so much fun, I can't believe it!" That made me remember what it was like at his age. I just loved it. It's rewarding to know that we are creating some fun memories for him and Brody.

Daddy enjoying Brody

Brody's first wading experience. By the look on his face the water must have been cold.

Brock loved feeding the ducks and Brody enjoyed watching them.

Itty Bitty Baseball

Brock started T-ball. We are so excited for him to learn and develop his talents. It is so fun to watch him run the bases, hit the ball, throw and catch. He is a lefty when it comes to catching/throwing and a righty when he bats. He is very good at everything he has done so far. When we practice at home he always reminds us what the coach has taught him. We are excited for the next 15 years with him and what he chooses to be apart of. Way to go Brock! Go Dodgers!
