Monday Moments - Back to reality!

Do you ever feel like you need a vacation from your vacation? It's not that we didn't have a great time in Moab...quite the contrary. We had a blast! But coming home, cleaning up, putting away and getting back on schedule...well it's just plain exhausting.

Here's a few highlights from our trip...

The beautiful rainbow we saw coming off the mountain one night in Castle Valley.

The view from our Hotel room. We stayed at the Red Cliff's Lodge at the base of Castle Valley. It was so beautiful. I would definitely recommend it, if you ever find yourself in Moab, Utah.

If you can't tell, little r was all about the 4 wheeling. All we heard for 4 days was, "go fo wide, go fo wide?"

Although we stayed in a hotel, most of our family camped up in the La Sal Mountains in a big clearing down from my Aunt and Uncles cabin. We just drove up to the camp site every day to hang out with everyone.

Little r and her cousin K trying to get a good look at the cute little deer that visited the camp every day.

I think I've mentioned that I come from a family of really is in my DNA. This is the camp kitchen. When the Nordfelts camp, they don't mess around with cooking. We had gourmet food for every meal. This particular night we enjoyed a traditional Southern Shrimp, Clam, Brat Boil.

This is my dad, one of the master chef's!

Thanks to my Uncle Kirtley and Aunt Gay for organizing and doing most the work for our fun reunion! We really had a great time!

Now back to reality...I have some yummy recipes for this week, so stay tuned. Also, I have a studio 5 appearance on Thursday, July 15th. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what to demo. Busy Busy Busy! I guess that's life...right?
