Desert Fun with Danny's Family

The girls were begging over and over after the reunion to spend more time with their cousins.  Fortunately, Danny and Kelli were great about the idea.  So, we escaped over Fall Break and went down to visit them.  They were the most amazing hosts!  They fed us yummy food and had so many fun activities planned.  We chatted and laughed until wee hours and just had the best time.  Oh, how we love family!  Thank you, Danny and Kelli!!
We did crafts and fun when at home.  We also roasted marshmallows, played with the dog, and hung out so comfortably.
They had also planned a day of sightseeing that they called "unique desert experiences".  It was so much fun!  It began at something called Salvation Mountain.  The girls loved exploring this bizarre place.  I loved taking pictures.
Next we went to see mud pots.  Yep, that same geothermal fantastic-ness that we adored at Yellowstone. Except here we could get a LOT closer.  Six months later we still can't stop talking about climbing all over the mud pots.
We ended our day at some of the biggest sand dunes in the US.  (Technically they should've been closed due to the government shut down, but they are literally off the highway so we went anyways.)  We ran and jumped and swam in the sand.  It was magical!
Thank you again, Family, for such an amazing time!!  We love you guys!!
