 This last weekend, the Merrells loaded into our RV once again for a road trip! It's always so much fun 
to have everyone together. We stayed 2 nights in Zion and 2 nights just down the street in Springdale.

The scenery was beautiful! Pictures cannot do the sheer majesty of the park justice.

Taking the shuttle up the canyon! Look at Crew's super cute hat and look how long my mom's hair is getting!

Cute little family

The first Emerald Pool- my favorite!

At the top of the Emerald Pools.

That is right people! I hiked the entire way to the top of the Emerald Pools (anyone
who has done that hike knows it is not an easy one!) with Crew on my back. Lance had to
work a couple extra days and met us there later. 

Weeping Rock

The top of Angel's Landing! What a beautiful and exotic hike. There are places where you are holding
onto a chain and can see down all the way to the canyon floor off to both sides. The last hour of the hike
is sheer cliffs on either side!! Talk about an adrenalin rush. People die on it every single year. We left the
 kiddies with Grandma and Grandpa. Thanks for all the pics, Melissa.

It was a great trip! A little long to have all the kids sleeping in tents/RV but all-in-all it
was a wonderful trip. We are packing our bags next week for St. George. It's going to be a busy summer!

I can't believe we missed you! We must have been just a few hours apart! What a fun trip! Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!

So fun! When we did angels landing, I had a panic attack on the chains part and had to turn around, haha. How embarrassing. We are going to st. George next week too! Talk about fun in the sun!
