Zion National Park

Since Leslie had a short week, I took some much needed vacation days ( I am so glad ski season is winding down) and headed to Southern Utah to spend a couple of days at Zion National Park. I won a couple of free nights at the Zion Lodge from my company holiday party so we were able to stay there. It was very rustic and quaint- the location couldn't be beat! We arrived in the park at around 10:30 PM on Thursday night, under an amazing starry sky. We didn't realize the splendor of our surroundings until the morning came. We had a blast! This was our first actual vacation as a family (just the three of us). Nothing is better than spending time with those that you love. We took some great pictures. Enjoy.

Lainey was a real trooper. Most of the time she was just on my back in the carrier, but she got out and hiked when she got tired of being strapped to my back.

She isn't as little as she looks either so a break for dad was always nice.
Leslie and Lainey on the balcony of our room. We had great views and a lot of fun!

What a Happy Family!
We had an awesome time. Too bad we have to work for a living- You'd see alot more posts like this if we didn't!

Jealous:) I remember the one kids days--vacations were a little easier. They get whinier as they get older:) Maybe I can convince Rob to haul all of them on his back, although none of them are as petite as yours. Grandma Crump really enjoys her visiting. We go on Tuesdays and she always talks about how cute little Lainey is:)

How fun! I'm quite jealous also that you were able to spend time down in Zion. Great pics.
