My girlfriend Alicia, Levi(my son) and I took a spontaneous trip to Zion back in February. I was nervous at first…just with that long road trip from Orange County to Utah with a one year old. And with another person. And how would Levi sleep at night. Just the usually worries of a mom leaving on a trip with a child. He actually did so good on the drive. We made a couple stops along the way to help break up the drive, which was good for all us. We stopped at the seven magic mountains in Las Vegas. Which was a super cute, fun, & crowded stop. I also had loads of snacks and Sesame Street playing on the iPad.
Zion is so pretty. If you’ve never been I would definitely recommend going. We did a few mellow hikes. I would love to go back and hike angels landing…my girlfriend actually went by herself! My husband I and went by in October and we did the Narrows hike. Which was Amazing! (and cold) So I recommend that hike for sure! We had to rent the waders and boots because it was too cold to just trek through with nothing. Although there were a lot of people doing it in shorts and tanks (crazies! LOL) I am also a HUGE baby in the cold, sooo there’s that.
I think Levi had fun, my friend and I had fun. And I would totally do it again. SO any mama out there, don’t be afraid to just to a bonsai trip. It was hard at times, especially with no nap which equals no down time for me….but I would do it again. Ha. It was definitely an adventure!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m really exciting to start sharing my stories with you! This is my space to share my daily thoughts and ideas with whoever cares to look. I’m excited to get creative and share it with you! Just a warning, I am a terrible writer. My brain is way faster than my hands. So, sorry if I don’t make sense or my sentences jumble together…
This is me and my patient husband, Travis. ❤ I’m a fiddler, always picking and touching… we’ve been together for 17 years, married for 9. I wouldn’t want to do life with anyone else! We met each other in high school(high school sweethearts) and never looked back. Now we have a home, a one and a half year old and two dogs. (well one dog was mine before we got married, so he adopted one 😉 ) We live in Orange County, CA. We love the OC but also daydream of living somewhere not as crowded and with seasons.
