|The cooler was being filled, hence the big space on the left|
Thursday we drove about 4.5 hours South to Zion. J did great, sleeping most of the way. Thursday was spent setting up camp and eating at a local Mexican restaurant, very delicious.

Friday morning Whitney and I woke up nice and early and had 10 miles on our training plan. It was so nice to run with a friend and someone to talk to. It was therapeutic and I really enjoyed it. Not to mention the scenery was beyond gorgeous.
The rest of the day we all hiked, the babies did great and we were able to hike all the fun trails that we wanted to(Hidden Trails, and part of the Narrows).

I say part of the Narrows because in order to hike all of it you have to hike through the river. Richard and Jared braved the waters and continued on. They only made it another half hour up the trail when the water was already up to a gentleman's shoulders so they decided to turn around.
While they were hiking, the rest of us found a shaded area next to the chilly water.
Friday night we made tinfoil dinners and Richard made a delicious peach cobbler. We were all stuffed!
I was pretty beat by the end of the night, so I headed to bed before Josh's mom, sister, and aunt showed up to spend the rest of the weekend with us. I'll post day 3 soon=)
