Last weekend, we packed up and headed south for our friend Dane's birthday trip! Ellie was entertained in the car by Hansen, the cutest dog in the world. She could have cared less that he kept secretly trying to steal her string cheese.
It felt so good to finally get to St. George! Ellie was thrilled to run around and explore.
The crew at dawn
After camping for the night, we did some bouldering in Moe's Valley.
Here is the hubby topping out
Unfortunately, we had car issues and had to stop by the Jiffy Lube. We were laughing so hard because we looked so homeless sitting outside while our car was being fixed, eating our lunch of PB & honey's and canned veggies. I was surprised that someone didn't come up and give us a couple of bucks with the way that we looked. ;)
After our car was fixed, we headed to the Prophesy Wall in St. George. This is a fun spot, because it is a little hike up to get there. Then once you are up there, it is a small area to belay from, and you feel like you are already on top of the world, even before you start climbing the super tall walls.
Isn't the view amazing??
Ellie loved every second of this trip! She did so good, and loved exploring.
She is such a cutie.
Here is the birthday boy, Dane leading out!
We brought Ellie's new harness and shoes along with us and she couldn't wait to get on the wall "all by herself and climb on REAL rocks" She did so good!!! I still can't believe she climbed on the famous Prophesy Wall for her first outdoor climb. At only 4 years old!
While Ryan and I climbed, this is how Ellie was entertained. By playing spelling apps on our iPad, and by hanging out with our amazing friend, Taryn. They became quite the cute little buddies :)
Our friend Kelsey and my hubby Ryan climbing
This is one of my favorite climbing spots, because it is so unique- and the view is breathtaking!
I have a major crush on my husband.... P.S. Ellie wanted to take a picture by herself and this is what she got. Pretty good, eh?
It was fun, St. George! Until next time...
