Paiute Trail

I have a confession to make.

I am addicted to chocolate cake cookies.

There. I said it.

My fabulous mother-in-law introduced me to these glorious cookies and every time I make a batch, they are gone in one day. No exaggeration people. I guess it probably doesn't help that my husband has the same addiction. It sure makes the cookies go a lot faster when there's two of us going at them like starving ducks fighting after bread crumbs.

I made some tonight to thank some people in our ward that have helped us out so many times since we have moved in. They are probably just going to have to wait until I make another batch... that we will try really hard not to eat.

Moving on to what this post is really supposed to be about: The Paiute Trail. Spencer's parents invited us to tag along with them as they rode the Paiute Trail this summer. We had a blast! It's been a long time since I camped without running water for three whole days. I forgot how much I really enjoy camping though. Call me crazy, but I don't mind sleeping in a tent and there is just something about being in nature that is calming to me.

Without further ado and in no particular order, here are some pics for you to enjoy.




My favorite pic of the whole trip:


He totally looks like the little boy on "Up" doesn't he?!



This kind of reminds me of Jurassic Park :)


My sweet husband decided that it would be only right that he collected a variety of wildflowers as we drove everyday. Here is my bouquet on the second day in particular:



The next picture was taken after we rode through a HUGE puddle. It was actually part of a river. If you look on Spencer's shirt on his collar, you will see a tiny spot that is a lighter gray color. That is the only spot that was left dry. A-mazing.
