The Little Sahara

Last Friday we drove down to the sand dunes just west of Nephi, UT with Ben's family. It was super fun! Both our boys loved the ATV and were constantly yelling for bigger hills and a faster speed. In 10 more years Ben's going to have some great 4-wheeling sons who are as crazy as he is! I only pray that we keep the ER visits to a minimum and that the docs are only needed to stitch minor cuts and cast repairable breaks!
While the ATV was occupied Ben and his brothers took to jumping off the incredible sandy hills. This is a pretty amazing picture John took of Ben.
Joyce made an amazing dutch oven dinner! It was super yummy...steak, potatoes, zucchini, onions, sand... I think sand in your food...
or on your binki is inevitable.


We had so much fun in UT with all our family. We're grateful for parents who take such good care of us with all sorts of food and entertainment when we visit. So, until next time, we miss you and peace out!!

I thought I saw Ben out one day but I thought....no that can't be him. So what's going on with your house? We have some friends who invited us to go 4-wheeling at the sand dunes, looks like fun. So you're back in New York? What are you going to do for the summer?

Looks like you guys had a blast! Sand, sand, and MORE sand. Ugh!
Do you remember our trip to St. George to 4-wheel. I think that was pre children days for you and Ben. It was fun!!
I wish that we could have made it to Utah to see everyone.....
Love to you and your family....

Looks like you guys had a great trip! That picture of you and Ben on the 4 wheeler is so cute. And I love the last picture of Luke, so funny! It looks like you had so much fun and I only wish that we could have overlapped our trips somewhere in Utah. We sure miss you guys!

Yes, I can see a whole crew of crazy Rollin's kids doing stunts on the ATVs! What a fun trip :)

What a blast! Great picture of you and Ben together and the boys are so funny. In a few years you will need three ATVs for all the boys to ride.

That really does look like so much fun, and I love the peace out picture of Luke. That is so funny. There is no question that your boys are going to be adventurous and I'm sure many Dr. trips will be in your future!
I wish we would have known you were in Utah, I'm pretty sure we overlapped for a few days. Definitely over Christmas we'll have to get together. By the way, are you going to the high school reunion? We're planning on going- so possibly we'll see you there...?

What a fun visit to Utah. I hope you enjoy Philly!
