Meteor Showers and Bedside Flowers....

Jake and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on August 12th! We had so much fun on our trip, which wasnt really even planned! We knew we were going somewhere but we wanted a nice, relaxing vacation so we got in the car and just drove and decided we wanted to check out Bryce Canyon, which is one of my favorite parks! Who knew that it was going to be one of the busiest weekends, due to the fact that it was free entrance into all the national parks that weekend, so needless to say, all the hotel rooms were sold out, and we didn't want to pay almost $200.00 for one night (especially since we arrived around 9:30 pm) so we decided to "camp" and slept in our car! It was really a fun adventure the first night! We enjoyed watching the meteor shower amongst the stars, which were really enjoyable without the city lights! Here are a couple more pics from our trip:
An abandoned Mill that's also surrounded by magnificent views!

LDS church built by pioneers...the pitched roof is definately one-of-a-kind!

Where we stayed for one had such a beautiful view for the sunrise, and the cliffs that surrounded the house were AMAZING! The lady who owned the house made the MOST delicious muffins (but she wouldn't share her yummy secret)! Her house was surrounded with wildflowers that were placed in a vase in your room! I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast, but we really enjoyed this small town and went to see "The Proposal" at a theater in town, and ate at a cute little restaraunt.

Jake early in the morning watching the sunset from the porch! Even I got up to see it! WOW that is amazing in and of itself! ;)

Me at Bryce..Love this National Park...but we also went to Capital Reef..which I think is my favorite National Park! If you've never been it's definately worth the trip to go down to Fruita!

So beautiful...there is nothing like it in the world!
