Well as some of you may or may not know it was Joe's birthday on Saturday, unless your my family then it was his birthday on Friday (at least you were close ;)) Joe's Dad and his wife Julie came down for a day full of adventure. We headed out to Zion (there is no s on the end of Zion I don't know if everyone is aware of this but if you know a park ranger you probably are very aware of this) around 8 a.m. the weather had been nice all week so we figured light jackets would suffice. We got there around 9:30 and it was freezing. We found some sun and hung out in it for about an hour to allow it reach to the other corners of the park. Around 11 it turned absolutely beautiful we hiked around we took pictures, had a little lunch and had a wonderful time. Ellie absolutely loved it! That girl was meant to be outdoors. She was hiking around like a champ and just was having a great time taking it all in. We stayed in the park til about 3 and then decided to head home. Joe's dad left and his mom and grandma came around six and took us out to dinner. It was such a great meal and such a great time. I don't know about Joe but I certainly had a blast on his birthday.
