Hey guys! Hope you had a great Weekend!

We spent the weekend down in Moab, Utah. Brent’s family goes down every year for the car show. It is a hot weekend to visit down in Moab. If you are a classic car fan, or your significant other it is a fun time to visit. Although, this particular weekend was anything but hot. It rained and was super windy the WHOLE weekend. Which made the car show a little rough. This is the first weekend in the last 5 years, that has had crummy weather. We still had fun though!

We stayed in a condo that we had rented. I didn’t set up the rental but it was great to have our own kitchen and rooms. If you have more then 10 people traveling with you, renting a condo is the way to go compared to a hotel.

We left early Friday morning and as soon as we arrived we rented a jeep, since we sold ours last year.. We went through Twisted Jeep Rental. We were able to get a really good deal on a 24 hr jeep rental and it had all the bells and whistles on it, well, in a rock crawling, jeep kind of way. The company was great to work with, I recommend them! They are a new rental company this year.

We are a little redneck and proud of it..


Being a pregnant chick, I get super car sick quick so I wasn’t able to do much jeeping. Here are a few pics from their jeeping adventure.

While everyone was jeeping I took my kids into town and we went to the T-shirt shop and they got to make their own t-shirts. Then I took them to the Moab Diner Ice cream shoppee for some ice cream!

We then headed back to take a quick nap before everyone got back. We went to dinner at La Hacienda. If you are in Moab and love Mexican food, this is the place to go! I highly recommend the chicken fajitas.


The rest of the night we spent chatting till our eyes all started to close.

Saturday morning I wanted to get in a run before they left but the high winds and heavy rain early in the morning.. kept me in bed. I wasn’t up for fighting the weather. I’ll admit, I’m a totally fair weathered runner! Especially in Moab, because when its windy, its also sandy..


The rain continued throughout the day, we spent the morning relaxing with the kids and did our nails and did a little shopping.


We had a quick lunch, turned the jeep back in and headed to the car show. It was raining and cold, so we didn’t stay too long. The car show isn’t what is exciting about it. People literally line up along the main street and watch the cars drive back and forth. They drag, rev their engines and show off. I should of washed my car… ha!


No Moab trip wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Zax.


I recommend this restaurant as a must go. They have great options, all you can eat pizza/salad bar, hamburgers, Salmon and even GF personal pizza! If you go you have to get the Honey Chicken Pizza! It is my favorite!! The salad bar isn’t that fabulous so don’t just get the “All you can eat Salad bar.” Everything else is fabulous!

Bee is my child that LOVES to have her picture taken. (That is the shirt she designed and made at “The T-shirt shop.”)


Tanner obviously is not. Ha! In this pic he jumped in front of Bee and is yelling at me not to take a picture..


Then we went outside and he actually asked me to take a picture of him with this “hot wheels” Car..


We spent the rest of Saturday night back at the condo playing Heads Up! It is a fun family game to play with just two people or a whole group! It is an app you can get on your phone.

This post is long enough for today! Ill post about our quick trip to Arches National Park another time.

What is your favorite road trip snack?

Sunflower seeds, are always a must in our car! I bring fruit leathers and licorice for the twins. Caffeine is usually a necessity if we are late night driving, especially for the driver!

On a scale from 1-10 how was your weekend?

I’m going to say a 5. It was good to get away but weather trumped it a bit.

Top 2 favorite toppings for Pizza?

I loved the Chicken Honey pizza from Zax, but always love artichokes, peppers and chicken on my pizza! Or just olives and cheese.
