Our third and final must-do activity on the boys' list was Sand Dune Arch. And boy did we do Sand Dune Arch. We're talking two hours of non-stop climbing and leaping and rolling around in the sand. Kid heaven. No broken bones (I feel compelled to continually point that out, since the boys are tiny dots on top of giant precipices more often than not in the photos I'm posting of our weekend in Arches. I'll treasure each of these small, no ER-required Mommy victories).
Gramma, Sasha, and Sam enter the arch-slot - you can tell which members of our party refuse to take the easy path anywhere! Mama and Sasha stroll through the deep, soft sand Ben and Sam take flight And never to be left behind, Sasha does her own leaping! At least she chose a toddler-sized rock.
