Desert

OK. So it has been almost a year since my last post. I'm not going to try and catch up. Just start where we are.....so here goes.

Memorial Day weekend we went to the desert. We stayed outside Joshua Tree National Park, and drove in for day hikes. It is an amazing place. Last time we were there--two years ago Lulu was just a baby and Axel a toddler. Time really flies!

My favorite quotes from the trip were:

"You're a pirate!" --Lulu, to every tatooed or dew-rag wearing hiker. Embarassing but funny.
"Lulu, don't ever go down there" --Axel to Lulu regarding the pit in the pit toilets. Sound advice Axel.
