Capitol Reef anniversary trip!

This is what we got to look at while we were there. Absolutely beautiful.

Our magnificent feast!!! My mouth is still watering.

We had so much fun just sitting outside playing games. ( I lost every stinking one of them!)

My super "smart" Joshy chopping wood with his FLIP FLOPS!!!

We love to stop off and see this tiny little school house.

Camping with comfort!! Nothing beats a double sized queen air mattress!!

This year my sweet Josh and I celebrated our 9 year anniversary. We look forward to this time together every year. There is nothing like a peaceful drive, and just hanging out together to remind us of how lucky we are to have each other. For the past 4 years we have gone to Capitol Reef and camped for a night then drive over to Bryce Canyon and spend a night there. And this year was no different. We headed out to Capitol Reef on Friday morning and made a couple of stops at some antique stores on the way. (small town antique stores are so stinking cute!) Anyway, we got there and to our happiness, there was only like 5 other people in our camp site and WE were the only ones in a tent! So we set up out stuff and went for a walk to this cute little old house that they have turned into a museum of sorts and a little market. We got some fresh made jam and some home made ice cream and went outside in the sunshine by the horsies and ate. The weather could not have been more perfect for our weekend. When we got back to our campsite, we jumped in the car and went for a drive through the canyon to a waterfall coming through the red rock cliffs. It is all so beautiful there. After our ride, we sat down and played some awesome games of Skip-Bo (which I sadly lost terribly) and Josh began to cook us dinner. We had the yummiest steaks known to man, corn on the cob, beans, and rolls. Josh is the best cook when it comes to steak and we ate until we had to roll ourselves off the picnic table so we could clean up. As soon as it got a little darker, we started our fire, and sat outside until we couldn't keep our eyes open and finally decided to hit the sack. What a fun and much needed time we got to have together. Thanks to the family and friends who helped with the kids so we could go. I love you Josh and look forward to many more years of fun with you!!! You ARE my biggest fan!! (Inside Joke)
Mmmmm Waaaa!!

I would like to say "TAKE ME" but somehow that would have taken away from the magic. I loved reading about your trip... nothing beats getting away on a good camping trip in perfect weather. Your lucky to have one another... but then I think you already know it.
