The past few days around our house have been a flurry of paper folding, printing, cutting, taping & glueing various Minecraft papercrafts.
Damek received a Minecraft papercraft set from a friend for his birthday, which he put together this weekend.
Kyan wanted to get the same set, so we went to Toys R Us, but then Kyan saw that they had a Minecraft Pickaxe on sale, so he decided he wanted to get that instead (he picked out a diamond sword for Damek). After arriving home, he immediately got the idea to make his own pickaxe by getting out a piece of poster board, tracing the pickaxe that he bought, painting it, cutting it out and and pasting it to another traced and cut out piece of foam core for strength.
|After Kyan's pick axe was finished Damek asked if it was a "Emerald/Amethyst Pick Axe". Kyan said "no";)|
Since Kyan didn't get a papercraft kit, we found a neat page on instructables called The Ultimate Guide To Minecraft Papercrafts, where we printed out our own templates to cut out and glue/tape together.

On the road.
Here is a view from the back deck of our cabin.

|We thought this looked like a face:)|

|Lee named this cloud 'The Phoenix'. If you look really closely you might be able to see (or not) the rock climbers at the very tippy top of the tallest tower!|
Castle Creek Winery, where Lee and I did a wine tasting and then purchased 2 bottles of the ones we thought were the best.
|Damek, who normally dislikes getting in sand, loved this soft, worm, smooth desert sand and couldn't get enough of it:)|
|can you see our car at the bottom?|
After leaving Moab, we headed to Dead Horse Point State Park to have a picnic before heading home.
