Day two of our Snow Canyon State Park adventure was full of fun. We started the day with a bike ride to the Snow Canyon Sand Dunes. We went in the morning, before the sun baked everything crispy, and the sand was cool in our toes. Our group of campers bought along a ball, Frisbee, cups and a shovel in order to truly enjoy our time. Big E was happy to just dig, dig, dig. He was so happy in fact, that he forgot to mention that he needed to pee and unfortunately peed in his pants, only fifteen minutes after I had taken him to the bathroom. Here he is, standing proudly, in his pee stained pants.
Since we had biked there from the campsite, the closest change of clothing was a twenty minute huff and puff up the trail, lugging my tots in the bike trailer behind me. I considered my options. Either I could bike back up to camp, or strip him naked from the waist down and traumatize all the other park patrons. Since neither option was that appealing, and since E seemed to not care even a tiny bit that he was wet with pee, I decided to do nothing. This may not be my best mothering moment, I’ll admit, but E seemed to be just as healthy, happy and developmentally adjusted before the event as afterward. So hopefully there’s no harm done.
