My parents offered to take the kids with them to Mt. Nebo after we decided we didn't want to go. We happily let them take the kids with them and they were so excited to go!
They went to McDonalds and got these cool toys in their happy meals
There's a lake that gets filled with trout. Pretty much every time you throw your pole in, you catch a fish, but you have to pay for them. The kids haven't really been fishing before...maybe once, so it was so fun for them to be able to go fishing and actually catch some fish!
Ash said she didn't want to touch the fish. lol. I was the same way at her age.
Hahahahahhaa....Preston's wearing my mom's hat!!! This picture cracks me up!!!!
And this one too. LOL. Nice fish, though! :-)
Preston caught 5 fish, and Ashleigh caught 3. How fun!
Then they went to Mt. Nebo. As far as I understand it, you can go up to the top of the mountain, and come back down, or you can go on the loop. There are a ton of trees there, and the leaves are all changing colors so it's really really pretty this time of year. Both kids came home with some leaves they found. LOTS of them! And all different colors. So pretty! The views up there are amazing!!! I love these pictures.
Exploring in the woods with Grandpa....and putting on stick-antlers.
This part was called the Devil's kitchen....not sure why, but it looks a little scary being so high up!
On their way home, they stopped again so my dad could do some more fishing. Then they had dinner at Taco Time.
Preston was so tired, he fell asleep on the way home.
In all they were gone almost 9 hours!!! Woo Hoo! Nick and I thoroughly enjoyed our kids-free day!!! We sure missed the kids by the time they got home, but after basically not seeing each other much all week, it was incredibly nice to be able to spend quality time alone together. I am extremely
grateful to my parents for taking the kids, and very thankful that my mom takes lots of pictures while they are gone so we can see all the fun that they had. THANK YOU, MOM AND DAD!!!!!!!
