Surprise, here's my birthday present from Todd:
No, he didn't buy me a horse... But he got me horseback riding lessons! It's my childhood dream come true! :)
I loved celebrating my b-day with a trip last year so we decided to do it again. And this time we invited a few friends to come along! We had so much fun on the trip... Until we gave everyone the flu. That part was not fun.
|Van was at the Delicate Arch in spirit. :) He left this hike early to finish the Moab Trail Marathon with a friend of his.|
|We didn't realize Avery was sick, she was just strangely lethargic this day. :(|
|These girls are great buddies. Avery LOVES "Why-wee" so much. ;)|
|Lydia did great on the trip. Even with the flu and throwing up during most of the drive home, she hardly complained at all.|
|We fit in a 5 mile trail run|

|The men went bouldering|
|The women picnicked at the park with the kids|
|Our one star rental house. It wasn't fancy but had a full kitchen and tons of beds. We really loved staying with everyone! (Except Casey and Rylie, who were missed.)|
|Everyone was so sweet to Lydia, even the big kids.|
Moab I love you and promise to return soon! I'll try to leave the flu at home next time I visit.
