Paiute Trail

We finally got to go on a little getaway and headed off to the Paiute Trail in Marysvale!  Where's that you say?  Yep, pretty much in the middle of nowhere, and so perfect!  It's a little south of Richfield and basically just this small town where you can camp and go 4 wheeling.  You can even ride you wheelers on their roads....what a town!  Well, we are a no wheeler family, but luckily my dad generously shares his with us and we get to go on some fun rides while we are there.

We started off with a sighting of none other than.....

Photobucket MATER!  My parents had left earlier in the day and had seen it and told us to look for it.  I knew the boys would be excited.  How cute are their faces?

The rest of the trip was spent riding, eating, visiting, laughing, eating, playing the movie game, eating, showing our walmart pride (LOL, totally an inside joke), visiting a "boutique" (if you can really call it that!), eating, and going on a geo cache hunt that Clint and Julie set up for everyone.  Oh yeah, and probably a little bit more eating.  The meals were incredible!  I don't think other people eat the amazing food that we do when we go camping.  My dad is an incredible cook and over the years has gathered some great camping food ideas.  I mean, hello, does anyone else eat pork and fish tacos when they are camping?  How about omelets?  Smoothies?  Deep fried french toast?  (That was a new one for me and AMAZING! Probably a little artery clogging, but definitely AMAZING!)

Thanks family for the fun trip!  Looking forward to next year!

Grandma Amy brought all sorts of supplies for rock painting and hot rocks!  The kids loved it...almost as much as Grandma Amy :)

Ummm... i am the worst friend. i think i just realized i never even asked you about this trip. and i know how excited you were about it. seriously, some days i forget how many kids i have! so, sorry.
It looks like a blast. I love the Mater truck...so, so cute.
And i love that you have a place close to your heart down by a place close to my heart too... :)

And i love you guys painted rocks... that sounds like an activity my mom would plan too. She loves rocks and has had the kids paint them recently as well.

Happy you got to get away!

My favorite trip of the year! It was great fun and great for all of us to be there. Geo-cache was tons of fun. Hey, did anyone mention the "Man Craft" we did? Chain saw art.
