Moab! (part 1)

This past weekend Lance and I went down to Moab for some camping and hiking…it. was. BEAUTIFUL!  I had only been here once before (which is nuts for how long I lived in SLC previously) and it was right when Lance and I started “hanging out”..or whatever.  We were only there for about a day that time so we did one big hike in Arches and were with a big group of people..so this time we were excited to just do whatever we wanted…whenever we wanted.  And it was great!  We had a lot of fun just spending time together and we didn’t discuss wedding stuff…we discussed marriage stuff!  ya know like what kind of dog(s) we want…how our kids will be…stuff like that.  Don’t get me wrong I love all this wedding plannnig-ness..but talking about our life after the “big day” is what really gets us excited!

ok now for some pics!

One thought on “Moab! (part 1)

  1. Great pics. It looks like you guys had a great time. I’ve got some amazing pics of Mesa Arch over the years. Was it insanely hot yet? I’m always nervous to go down there after Memorial Day because it gets hot so quickly!
