Unfortunately, having already been gone the week before, another few days away from work wasn't going to work out for lame-o breadwinner Mommy, so super-intrepid Daddy took our pack down to Moab for a few days!
I think that they really mourned my absence, as evidenced by this conversation upon their return:
Mommy: Did you miss me while you were in Arches, Sam?
Sam: Umm... uuuhhh... I better not answer that
My pack was well cared for by several other church families who all met up at our favorite Moab campground and, judging by the pictures, they did limp along fairly well without me :)
They did all of the requisite favorite Arches family activities:
|Leaping from high heights|
|Running down sand hills|
|And lots of hiking (we always get more hiking photos of the little ones since they're generally tethered to us)|
We should do this two fall break thing more often...
