so i went to moab this weekend.

shocking, right? i know. sometimes i'm just so adventurous.
neon desert bag. completely necessary.

miss andrea ovard. still looks amazing on a camping trip. it just isn't fair.

now i'm about to show you a photo that some people might consider embarrassing. i am only showing you this photo because i trust you and i want you to know how boss i am.
i can't even tell you how much laughter and how many tears that photo brought us. the next one is pretty amazing too.
yeah. don't mess with me.

i feel that i need to give an explanation. i only brought those sweat pants to sleep in because we were camping and i knew it would be cold. well it was super windy and i was wearing capri leggings and they just weren't quite cutting it. desperate times call for desperate measures, people! so yeah, i had to tie my hoodie around my face and i had to wear sweat pants with elastic on the bottom of them with my huge white tennis shoes. i said i was desperate. but at least i look like a total bad-a.

just hanging out in the wind.

did i mention this was an all girls trip? yeah, we mountain biked, hiked, and camped all by ourselves. andrea and i even built a fire for our tin foil dinners that was totally legit and better than many of the fires i've seen boys build. take that testosterone!

now on to the scenic portion.
i don't really like how your pictures have to be squares on instagram, but i kind of like the black bars that come from not cropping. makes me feel like my iphone pictures are stills from movies.

so when we went mountain biking at the world famous slick rock, i may have fallen off my bike. after 10 minutes. then quit and took a nap in the car. maybe that happened, maybe it didn't. there's really no way to tell.

the following are photos of my injuries in order from least to most gruesome.
there are actually no visible injuries in this picture but my shoulder hurts bad. real bad.


this trip was actually super fun. i did things that i don't normally do, got to hang out with friends that i don't get to see as often as i would like, laughed soooooo hard, and got to witness God's amazing creation that is moab.

i got a taste of what it's like to be a single mom of three over the past 24 hours. church with this 11 month old is HARD. but at least he makes a super cute grandpa.
sometimes i worry that i'm turning into one of those blogger moms that only talks about their children. and these kids aren't even mine. but seriously... they are just too adorable to keep to myself.
