Moab's many sights

The humongous sand hill right as you head into Moab was by far Collin's favorite thing on the trip. He jumped and slid on his belly and played for almost an hour in the sand. We wished we had brought shovels and pails or something fun for the kids in the sand. He also made us chuckle because he asked to go back to the hotel at least 10 times a day. He just thought it was really cool that we had a room where we all slept and ate and watched movies away from home. Jamie's sister and I teased Jamie quite a bit about "like Father like son" because when they went to Disneyland when they were kids, he was constantly saying "I want to go back the building". I don't think we got pictures of it, but out in the middle of the desert on one of our off-roading excursions, there was a random plaque about real dinosaur tracks. Collin and Isabel were so excited to see real footprints! We also saw some Indian writing in one of the canyons. My sister-in-law Cindy teaches 4th grade Utah history so she was esthatic to take pics to show her class. Overall it was an amazing trip and we had a blast. Other highlights for Collin were chasing lizards and feeding chipmunks and squirrels.
