Ocatillo Wells

Last weekend we went to Ocatillo Wells in the middle the California desert about 30 miles from the Mexico boarder. It is great riding terrain and since this was about the last weekend to ride (gets too hot to ride in the desert) we thought-- why not-- lets get one more weekend in!! We went with all our friends and had a really good time.

Mia enjoyed playing with Kaitlyn and the bubbles (we brought our niece Kaitlyn with us)

Chasing the bubbles

She just had way too much fun running after the bubbles!

Kevin riding Owen's motorcycle around camp

Mommy riding Owen's motorcycle around camp (It was just around camp so I was OK with no helmet)

Ethan and I riding--too fun!!!

Ethan riding on the hills in our camp

I look like a massive amazon woman on the little motorcycle

Owen speeding by

It was quite hot- the last day I think it was in the 90's so when the boys were done riding they would take off their shirts-- it was so funny seeing all their skinny bodies with their shirts off!

They crack each other up!

They drank plenty of liquid as it was wayyyyyy hotttttt!!!
We had a blast and really enjoyed our last desert trip of the season.
