A Little Family Getaway
This summer, when for a few short weeks Spencer's work schedule became manageable and we started having dinner together as a family again, we started talking about taking a family trip. Other than trips with extended family and little overnighters in Park City or downtown, we hadn't taken a good, old fashion family vacation since Clara was just over a year old. Actually, that was kind of a quick weekend trip too! I guess we aren't very good at taking trips, but it's something we're working on. We debated spending a weekend at the beach, but as work started to pick up again we settled on a local-ish destination: Moab, Utah.
Because a "polar invasion" blasted most of the country while we were there, it was on the cooler end of November's spectrum of temperatures, but the high 30's with sunshine proved perfect hiking weather. Clara refused to wear a coat, but we all ended up removing several layers along the trail, once again authenticating the wisdom of a three year old. A three year old who also happens to be a great photographer!
