Joshua tree

we started off our spring break camping in joshua tree. our first time camping with cedar & it was really fun. i'm so happy that we went. camping with babies is a lot more work; extra food, so many extra clothes, blankets, making sure you have everything just in case anything happens.. it's a lot of extra gear. but it's fun. joshua tree is seriously is unlike any other place i have ever seen. if you haven't been, i highly recommend you go.
the trip started off with driving an extra 3+ hours through the mojave desert due to our phone maps giving us bad directions, & getting to joshua tree to find all of the campgrounds to be full. but luckily we came across a nice girl camping by herself, that offered us to share the campground with her. so we set up camp, went into town to grab a few things from the store, wandered around the campground, & stargazed.
i woke up in the early, early morning being a complete mom & worrying that cedar was too cold. even though he had a million layers on, plus blankets, & was slightly sweaty... i couldn't sleep because of my worry, so austin & i decided to start the day while it was still dark to catch the sunrise. we put cedar in the car & drove around so that i wouldn't worry about him being too cold, & saw such a beautiful sunrise & got some really cool pictures.
after the sun rose we headed into town to grab some breakfast & so i could use the internet for school. we then spent the rest of our time exploring the park & climbing. it was so fun to go climbing again outside. it has been far too long since i had been climbing outside. & cedar had fun playing around in the dirt, it was a win on all accounts. 
prepare for a photo overload.
