This last weekend, my Mom and Dad agreed to watch Roxy for us while we went to Moab with Matt's brother Ben and his Natalie, and our best friends ever, Lynsey and Matt B (I only add the "B" to help with the confusion between my Matt and this Matt). It was a blast! Thanks again Grandma and Grandpa!! And thanks Lynsey and Matt for inviting us. We went during Jeep Safari, which is the craziest week of the year in Moab. There are people everywhere and Jeeps everywhere. Thanks to our friend Matt B, I've come to realize how much fun Jeeping is. Before our trip to Moab last year, I never knew that those commercials you see where the Jeeps literally climb up a mountain could actually be a reality or something that I would ever do. And it's a pretty cool feeling to look at this humongous rock and think that there is no way to get up it, and then to just do it. It's awesome actually! I'm still a little chicken to drive myself, which I have done on "Baby Lion's Back", but I don't mind just being in the passenger seat. Anyway, we camped out at "the field," where we got no sleep because of the noise and was able to see a guy get chased down by a police dog and arrested. The second night we invested in some earplugs to help with the sleep issue. Some of the other highlights of the weekend: Hell's Revenge, Poison Spyder, Seeing a Jeep roll on Potato Salad, Tin foil dinners, Smores, sitting around the campfire, spending time with friends, and especially spending time with Matt. The sun was out and the weekend turned out great!

Good Times!

Roxy at 6 months

These are some pictures that my fabulous cousin JoRae took of Roxy when she was a little over 6 months old. Thanks JoRae, they look great! She is now almost 7 months and is as cute as ever. We love her so much and are so lucky to have her!
