The Dead Animal Museum
|The dead animal museum is really called something else, but we can never remember the name.|
|We had not been there since Warrick was two. He remembered the skunk family and the living turtle. We didn't. As soon as we got in he said, "See, there's the turtle." Then he lead us to the skunk family.|
|Stafford looks surprised, maybe even shocked or possibly slightly confused. I'm not sure what happened just then, but I have a feeling that Jade does.|
|Warrick loved showing Jade around the joint.|
|Stafford insisted that this was his pet.|
|What's that saying about pets looking like their owners?|
|Dad thinks if he doesn't look directly at the camera that it will go away - not the case.|
I imagine my dad acting and looking a lot like Stafford when he was a little boy.
|Mom, Cherie', and me.|
|They had serious adventures of floods, earthquakes and thunder storms - some very stressful situations.|
Zion National Park
|Zion is one of my favorite places in the world and Angels Landing (the cliff in the pic) is one of my favorite hikes. It is short, but beautiful and I have some really funny memories made on those trails.|
|This tree looked like it had two extra trunks performing the splits.|
|Craig and Stafford - Notice their matching dirt bums.|
The activities at the river included skipping rocks, or trying to and throwing a branch in and then trying to bomb it with rocks. The kids loved seeing Uncle Craig skip rocks and would gather them for him. The rocks got progressively larger because they enjoyed the cannon ball effect.
|This is the last rock they brought to Uncle Craig to watch him heft it and create a splash.|
|The boys admired the large splash that it made. I admired his form. His toes were even pointed.|
