sorry, the blog is probably hard to follow with me jumping back and forth from past to present, but i really want to get all the "moving" stuff down on "paper", so to speak, so i can just stay in the present! i am getting closer to being done with catching up, so just indulge me for a moment longer in time.
the long road trip, day 4:
not much exciting happened until our fourth day on the trip to albuquerque. it was pretty much just a bunch of driving! the girls did fantastic, though. we wanted to do something fun that the girls would enjoy to break up all the driving.
so, on our fourth day, we were driving through utah and decided to take the girls to arches. they were super excited!
unfortunately, i was not able to get a closer look because i had been bleeding a little bit since we had left oregon and needed to stay off my feet as much as possible. so i stayed in the car while mitch took all three girls for a closer look at the arches. i got a little nap and they got some great pictures.
i was surprised they got a picture with no one else in it. it was super crowded that day because the weather was gorgeous!
lala holding up the arch, love the look on her face!
i took this picture after they got back to the car. it's not a very good picture because the lighting is horrible, but i love it because of kawena. she stood next to that railing and looked at mitch and saw his hand on his hip. so, she looked back at me and put her little hand up on her hip just like her daddy! too cute!
back in the car before we head back to the interstate.
this is my favorite shot that mitch took of nani's silhouette through the arch! i love the blue sky in the background.
we are sure glad we stopped and we plan to go back again when we have a little more time to take a tent for camping! the girls really loved it!
