"Mom! I don't have school on Monday!" Scarlet informed me last Friday. You don't? Oh yeah! Veteran's Day! I have been very behind on my holidays this year, they have all kind of jumped up on me. I haven't taken my kids to school on a holiday yet, but I've come close.
Within hours of finding out both of my kids didn't have school, I had our day trip planned and ready to go. I have been wanting to go to Zions for a long time, even more so since Courtney and Curtis moved to St. George. Utah decided to be super unpatriotic and not take the day off so Curtis didn't get to join us but Courtney headed up the canyon and we went a hikin!
We took the Emerald Pools hike and it was gloriously beautiful.
The kids scurried up rocks, shimmied through caves, and even walked under waterfalls.
I love this picture. My brave adventurers taking on the world.
And we reached the upper pool!
