We just returned from a great trip to Moab this past weekend. We were supposed to go over Memorial Day, but there was some confusion and we ended up going the weekend after. This actually worked out very well, however, as the weather Memorial Day weekend was miserable.

Bob and Barbara Ann actually headed down the day after Memorial Day and we joined them the following Friday. We were excited that Heather and her kids, Ashley and Owen, decided to join us also; they arrived on Saturday afternoon. Devon, Heather and the kids (minus Chloe, of course) were actually brave enough to venture out one of the trails with Aaron and Bob, and this left Heather thirsting for a little more danger. The highlight of the trip was when she got it later the same day when she went with Bob and Aaron on another trail run.

On the trail, she was apparently having a great time and asked if she could drive a little ways. She climbed into the driver's seat and away she went (she did great, by the way). Aaron was in the lead in his Jeep and he pulled up a short, but near vertical rock slope and had no problems getting over it. Heather pulled up next with Bob in the passenger seat and slowly worked her way up until she got to the point that her tires started to slip. Bob told her to give it some gas and did she ever; so much so that the momentum caused both front tires to come off the rock leaving the Jeep pointed skyward and nearly flipped over on its roof. She took her foot off the gas and after a few frightening seconds the Jeep came back down on all four wheels. Aaron was videotaping the whole thing, but didn't capture much of the major wheelie as he was busy running towards the Jeep yelling "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!" After a couple minutes of everyone catching their breath, she tried the hill again and made it over. Aaron and Bob were proud of her for not giving up and sissying out.

Everyone had a great time and all were sad to see it come to an end Monday Afternoon.

Here's some pictures from the trip:
