Spring Break - The Drive

For Spring Break we took a road trip to Utah with Ryan's parents. Ryan's brother Aaron lives in Provo so we went to visit him and to see some of the church sites in Salt Lake.Here we are - we've been on the road for a few hours and everyone appears to still be happy and enjoying themselves.
We stopped at Lee's Ferry if you have never been there I highly recommend it - GORGEOUS!

Looking down to the Colorado River. Something I would have never thought up on my own - but Ryan was showing the boys how long it takes for spit to land in the river.

I have to say that it made me a little nervous being on the bridge. I was ok as long as I was in the center, but the closer I got to the edge the dizzier I felt. I did try to take a picture looking straight down into the river over the edge of the bridge but it didn't turn out so good. I realize I have irrational fears about my children, but I had to keep telling myself ... they will not fall off the bridge.... they will not fall off the bridge.




It was actually pretty cool to see the California condors. I think the boys thought it was cooler to call them turkey vultures, until we explained to them that these creatures are pretty much extinct. There are something like 70ish left in the world and we were able to see 8 of them that day.








Not sure if you can tell what Ben's shirt says "I'd rather be naked". This child loves to be naked. He could be throwing a royal fit but if you take off his clothes all of a sudden he is all smiles and giggles. I'm not sure if that is a baby thing or just a boy thing. Maybe both.
