This past Saturday was my middle son’s 14th birthday! I keep telling my boys to stop growing and getting older but they don’t listen to me. lol Seriously, though, the time just seems to fly. I can clearly remember this sweet little 4 year old riding on the vacuum like it was yesterday. We are currently in Arizona visiting family and we took a trip out to the sand dunes at the border of CA for a weekend of riding toys. So.much.fun.!
Here are a few pictures of our weekend trip….
This is Carter, the birthday boy, helping pack up my brother in law’s toys and super excited!
This is my brother in law and my niece going riding in the razor.
This is hubby and my two other boys in the rhino.
Here is the birthday boy driving the rhino. He loved driving!
Hubby was just as excited as Carter about the weekend. He has been missing his days of motorcycle riding. Good to have a big brother with all the gear!
This is our 5th wheel and where we camped. There is no hook ups so we ran off our battery and generator.
Here is my brother and sister in law’s motor home. They have a trailer to pull the sand toys on.
The dune hills are steep! A few of us decided to hike it one day. Such a good work out! The view is just gorgeous…isn’t it?
My youngest boy, Caden ran down to the bottom first and then hiked back up. We all did this a couple of times.
I love this picture! The colors and the sky is just amazing!
So beautiful isn’t it?? Have you ever gone riding in the sand? This was my first time in the four wheelers. The last time I went was 20 years ago when hubby and I were dating! We rode his dirt bike. The boys had a great time and it was especially fun going with family. We had a campfire with s’mores both nights and Carter requested ice cream pie for his birthday ‘cake’.
Happy 14th Birthday, Carter! I love you and am so proud of you.
