Our Quick Trip to Sedona

This weekend we took a quick trip to Sedona and had a BLAST! 

Thankfully David has his confidence back at work, but he's been working really hard and was feeling stressed, so we decided it was time to escape for a bit.  We both had Sunday off from serving at Church, so it was the perfect weekend to go! 

We left of Saturday morning to head up to Sedona.  And by morning, I mean 11:00.  On our way up we drove past a sign for Out of Africa zoo and decided to go.  It was a lot of fun!!  It is not very accessible, as there are no paved paths, but the girls (and their wheelchairs) did well and we made it through.  They were very accommodating and went above and beyond to try to make sure we had the right busses for the tours and the such and could see all the shows. 




 
On the tour you got to feed a giraffe celery.  The tour guide suggested feeding with your mouth for a big giraffe kiss.  Conner decided that was a great idea and gave it a shot.  The girls were not quite so adventurous. 




 
 

After the zoo we headed to the hotel.  After eating dinner, we just laid in bed and watched some tv.  It felt great to be vegetables for a bit!  The next morning we grabbed breakfast and then headed out for a hike.  The girls rode in style in their ToddlerHawks, of course.  It was a beautiful trail and everyone really enjoyed it. 





 
 
Before heading home, we stopped to "fish" at the trout farm.  It's not really fishing, as there are so many trout you catch one within seconds of throwing in the pole, but we haven't taken the kiddos fishing before so they had a blast.  Normally we don't eat farmed fish, but they don't allow catch and release, so tomorrow night, we dine on trout!  I'm not sure if the kiddos will eat it, but we will try!  So far they only eat the breaded gluten-free pan fried cod I make, though they tell me it's chicken and won't accept the truth ;). 
 




 
 And their favorite part.... feeding the fish :)

 
 
It was so nice to get away, even if it was just for a night.  We can't wait to go back to Sedona again one day!
