as we got closer to Moab...I shared my IPAD for a few minutes...Phew...we made it to Kane Springs campground to set up for the night...things were pretty packed down in Moab too. The weather was nice and it was a weekend so EVERYONE was there...we did manage to score a 22 dollar camp spot...funny how it's that much...and no showers...and the potty wasn't anything to scream about...but WHitty was excited to be in the desert.
And so was I...I thought.
The Stitt family pulled in after dark...I was feeling awful so I hit the bed early with Whityn...camping and pregnant isn't really as cool as it sounds.
The next day it was beautiful...and we did plenty of time on the potty...
We donned shorts...SO EXCITING.
WE went exploring in the Kane Springs area
And we managed to run into Todd's dad and stepmom...that was fun!
These 2 getting sandy...Whityn loved to explore and take little adventures to rocks..the river...or anywhere you wanted to take him...as long as you called it an adventure.This big rock was in our campground the following night...we moved into a more treed area after the weekend clear out...and we even got a 5.00 shower! :)
I really wanted to drop into a few of the trails...but the FACT is I am not that great of a mountain biker and as fun as they looked I know I would be on my bum and off my bike which is exactly what I don't want...so I stuck to the road...which was bumpy and exciting too!
The boys did some throw and catch at the camp site...
But peeing outside apparently makes everything better. No folks we still haven't MASTERED the potty...as quick as he successful...the next day he isn't...argh. I know he'll get it..but it's been a bit frustrating...for me...and I am sure he just wants me to shut up about it.
In the desert...there are these things called goat heads..ever heard of them? Well, Jordy learned really quick not to ride through a campsite...or anywhere for that matter without slime in our tires...because he got about 100 goat heads in his tires and they were SOOOO flat! Todd helped with some slime application and all of our bikes were DESERT ready!After 3 nights in Kane Springs...we hit the Slickrock campground..which BY far exceeded our expectations...it was 10.00 to get into the park..camp and it even had an impressive out toilet with no roof...so you could pee under the stars...:) Jordy, myself and Whitty in tow managed another ROAD ride on bikes...Jordy ended up doing Slickrock with Todd...and Anne hiked with me...I can't imagine biking it...it looked insanely HARD.
It was quite Windy and this little man was happy to hop back in the van...but at least the sun was out!
