gym, Moab, & Mother's Day

This weekend we drove down to Moab to see Beach's Papa. You might already know he has been living & working down there (~4 hrs south of SLC) building a Straw Bale House.  
Big Coach D had given the girls a week off of gym after Regionals. I can't say we did much during the week because Beach was sick and I still had to work at the gym. Beach had to "work" a little too.
She loves her coaching-thing with Coach Dan on Friday mornings. She and Dan took these pics of one of the classes. Pretty cute stuff!!! Anyway, we took advantage of long break from gym to include some time with Papa. We meant to leave Friday night but it took us a little longer than planned to pack and settled the house for the house sitter and to get Beach's half brother off to see his mom in Idaho for Mother's Day with her. 
So instead of driving Spanish Fork canyon in the dark we left very early Saturday morning. Rolled into Moab a tiny hair past 9am. We tooled around town, hung out on the building lot, and Beach played house in her Papa's trailer while he finished a shortened work day.
In the afternoon we hit the road leading south out of town for some hiking in Mill Creek followed by fishing at Ken's Lake.  
The next morning was Mother's Day.
After breakfast dad-style we headed for Dead Horse Point State Park. 
But first we had to stop at local rock shop.
Dead Horse Point
After Dead Horse we headed way out into the wild looking for Dead Horse Ranch. A beautiful historic (private) ranch well hidden up a red cliff canyon.  Beach's papa knows the caretaker. 
Amazing spot! Then back out to the wilds of the desert.
 Back in town for a quick ride on papa's new bike, a hop through the community pool, and home again.
