Joshua Tree - Spring Break

4.01.2013

Last week was Landon's spring break which was awesome!! We were able to get our new place finished & decorated, watched lots of movies and ate lots of frozen yogurt together. :)

So we wanted to go out to Arizona to visit friends and camp... but it came just too quickly for us before we could plan it.
Then we wanted to go on a short 3-day cruise to Mexico... and then I'm not really sure where that went.
And then we wanted to go camping the whole week down here in California... but yep you guessed it, we didn't plan anything.

So we woke up Thursday morning, at 10AM, and was like, "hey lets go camping!!... in 30 minutes!!"
Our specialty seems to be last minute, and I like to think of it making everything more exciting. :)
So we grabbed our tent, grabbed some food and off we were to Joshua tree hoping that there was a spot for us to camp at.  I called in 5 different times to make reservations, but the lady said that the entire Easter weekend was full and they had a few spots left for tonight.  So we crossed our fingers and drove an 1 1/2 out to a sign saying JOSHUA TREE: BLACK ROCK - FULL!
So we drove up hoping that we could still figure something out and luckily someone just left leaving a spot just for us!

We pitched our tent, went for a hike, made tin-foil dinners, ate LOTS of s'mores, slept, and made some eggs and bacon for breakfast.  It was the perfect little unplanned getaway and just what we needed.  I love my time with my Landy :)
