We had a fun birthday weekend last week. John turned the big 48! I surprised him with tickets to go see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It was playing up at Spring Mountain Ranch near Red Rock. It was a really nice night. We took our friends Jamie and Greg and we picked up a picnic dinner on the way. We ate on the grass and waited for the show to start. It was a different version of the play, a bit more rock and roll feel to it. We enjoyed it. I can't say it was great, but it was fun. It was a good way to start off the birthday weekend!
Saturday morning we got up early and drove up to Zion National Park. John's favorite place to go! He had been wanting to go all summer and we finally had a free Saturday to go. Since it was John's birthday we got the boys to go without complaining! We hiked a few hours into the narrows. We like that hike because you get wet and stay cool! The water was really low and very brown! Not sure why it was so muddy?? Maybe because there was a lot of rain that week?? All I know is Mitchell's white shirt is now cream colored! I tried bleaching it and everything... oh well.
