Little trip to Sedona

Back in February, I was stuck inside with 2 kids, a busy job and feet of snow outside- I got the itch and started to watch fares for warm destinations- as it turned out AZ had cheap tickets and as we all know one of my favorite people in the world lives there... off we went to Sedona. Life is good!

We camped and even though it was warm in the desert, it was cold up where we were camping- that meant double jammies for both kids and Emi got an extra bonus- when she would wake up in the middle of the night cold and crying she'd get to eat and then snuggle in with me in my sleeping bag!

 Pete was an awesome awesome hiker- Kim and I went on an 8 or 9 mile hike one day on our own- she took Emelia and I carried Petey for about 7 miles and I bet that he walked 2 of them himself!! He loved looking at the cacti, red rocks and most of all watched for helicopters overhead doing the ariel tours- he always told us the color and asked "mo?, Mo? ell-wow?" (more, more yellow?)
 Easter came and went also, Kim being the amazing god-mama that she is to Pete hosted an egg hunt for him at our campsite one afternoon that we just stayed, hungout and played games. He loved it and did the hunt 2 or 3 times I think!
 Family hike one day.
 Kim and I ditched Garrick and the kids and went out biking on our own one afternoon- we saw a lot of awesome rocks, a church built into the side of the mountain and hit some sweet jumps... maybe not that last part but it was super fun! Garrick biked his brains out basically- he was in 7th heaven and could have spent 4 more days there never getting bored... next year?

Right before we went to the airport, we went to this train place out in the desert- there were trains to ride, little trains to watch and middle sized trains to watch. Pete even got to go into and "under" the train set outside and look at the houses, cars and bridges. He looks like a giant standing out there! I think that this pretty much blew him away.All in all, awesome trip, awesome company (it was super fun to see Kim and meet her boyfriend Kyle) and awesome weather.
