Kids Big Rock
After we left Zion's Canyon we started our drive to Colorado. The drive is quite long and that can take a toll on a family with three 5-year old boys. We have a goal that every time we pull over we find something fun to do if possible. While driving we saw this huge rock just to the side of the road. We took our van...did some off-roading and drove to the rock. The boys unbuckled themselves and RAN to the rock. This shot wasn't set up...they just ran because they needed to get their energy out.
We stayed there for about an hour....longer than a normal break but it was so much fun that we just couldn't cut it short. The boys threw rocks, and the coolest thing was the rock was so big that as the boys ran up to it yelling all the way...a huge echo came back. It was pretty surprising given the fact that the area was so wide open...but that's how big the rock was. The boys must have spent 10 minutes just busting up laughing from all the crazy things they said and listened for the echo back. It's moments like these that make being a Dad the best thing in the world.....
