Canyonlands National Park!!!

We went on a 5 day camping trip over Memorial weekend with my nephew. This park is beautiful, I highly recommend it.

Paul's first camping trip.
Best Camping Baby!
The people in the campsite next to us heard Paul laughing and talking and said he had the best camping baby ever:)

Cookin over the fire.
You'll never find a camp stove in our site.

This was just south of Moab on the side of the road.

Hiking to the Grand View Point Outlook in the Island in the Sky.
This is a 2 mile hike where you can see a panoramic view along the cliffs edge.
This is a popular place to watch the sunset.

Grand View Point Outlook!
This was so beautiful.
We don't have the best camera so you can't really tell how high up we are. The altitude is about 6,000 ft and it overlooks thousands of miles of canyons.

Hiking the Y!

We hiked the Y with my cousin and nephew. I had been up there before but this time it took everything in me to make it. Looks like one of my summer goals needs to be getting into shape.


Cake Time!

I decided that I wanted to learn how to make pretty cakes. After watching a lot of YouTube videos to see how other people did it I gave it a try. I don't have any of the fancy decorating tools that they did so I had to be creative with what I had around the house. Here is my first pretty cake. It's a double layered chocolate fudge cake with chocolate icing and covered with marshmallow fondant. (I think normal fondant is disgusting but the marshmallow kind it quite good.)
Not too bad if I say so myself:)
