Camping in Kolob

When I was in the deepest, darkest part of my pregnancy sickness, one of the only things that could
 keep me going was looking forward to when I would be feeling better and planning fun things.
One of those things I planned was a camping trip with all my girlfriends and husbands in St. George
at the end of our week at the condo. We've been looking forward to it for a long time and I was
excited it was finally here!

Josh and Jennica were very kind to offer up their family's cabin in Kolob, which is about an hour out
of St. George, and we had a blast! We missed Lindsey & Tony as well as Alisa & Daxton 
who just had their sweet baby boy! I was in heaven to visit her and hold that sweet baby for an entire hour.

Josh and Lance kicked off the fun before we headed up by knee boarding on the 
Virgin River behind the 4 wheeler.

The drive up was gorgeous. It was fun to see the transition from red rock to rolling
green hills in just a matter of an hour. It was green as far as the eye could see!

First thing we did was start the campfire to cook our tin foil dinners. Tin foil dinners are 
hands down my favorite camping meal. Crew loved being daddy's little sidekick.
Crew and Abbey loved being up in the mountains.

We joke that these two are mortal enemies. But seriously, they are. For some reason between their age 
gap and personality differences, they cant keep from hitting or pushing each other every moment they're
 together. Maybe they will hate each other forever, then realize they are really soul mates :)

Cute mama and babe!

Love my sweet boy more than anything

We spent the evening enjoying our meal, then sat around the campfire chatting and laughing until
after 1 am. Needless to say, we were all pretty exhausted when the kiddos woke up at 7 am, but it was
completely worth it! And all us women got great naps while the boys went fishing.

After fishing we ate lunch, then played some friendly games of Smash ball. I may or may not have
beat everyone (except Jenn, who I didn't play) at the game. Don't mess with the pregnant chick. Just sayin :)
The whole group

Me, Whitt & Jenn
Two of the best friends a girl could as for!

We had a wonderful time in Kolob. There's talk of making it a yearly trip which we would love!

On the way home we visited our good friends Mark & Tiff who just had a sweet baby boy.
He was 4 1/2 weeks early and just tiny! Crew could not get enough of him and kept stroking
his cheeks, kissing him and peaking under the blanket at his tiny feet and hands.

We did a mini photo shoot. Isn't he adorable?
It was great to get my baby fix while waiting for baby girl to get here.
Congrats Mark and Tiff! We are so excited for you two.
