Goblins in the Valley

Marc got to go on a Scout campout with Brother last weekend.

They went to a place called Goblin Valley. It is called that because the rock formations look like thousands of little goblins all over the little valley.

If you've never been here before, but it still looks familiar to you, it may be that you are a fan of the movie, "Galaxy Quest"

Marc said they had a great time, that our son was a little bit of a stinker sometimes, but for the most part, did pretty good. It seemed, from the pictures that they had a great time hiking around the valley of goblins.

Brother was so happy to be able to hike and climb around. He loves this kind of thing!

I love the snow-capped blue mountains topping the red goblins of the valley.

He loves caves, I am sure this was one picture he asked Daddy to take.

Here is Brother hiking with his scout leader, great guy that Varden. He takes the boys on quite the fun adventures.
I am so glad that Marc was able to go, not just for Brother's sake, but because that Father-Son time is so precious. We don't get a lot of opportunities to go on a one-on-one outings with our kids, so this kind of thing is a great opportunity.

The day that Brother and Marc got home was the same day my brother and his family came in from Illinois for a week-long visit. We got together all of our family on Sunday for a big dinner at our house.

It was so fun to have the entire family together again.

And let me tell you, we love food. We were definitely gobblin' all the food that was here! Ha! Sorry, I just couldn't help tying it all in...
