Let the Sunshine!

If you live in Spanish Fork, Utah, and start to get the winter blahs, you should . . . head to St. George!! What a pick-me-up!

When we arrived, the 8 of us snuck through the lobby into our 4-person room. Our arms were loaded with Hefty bags full of clothes, blow-up beds, and food for 2 days! We were quite the sight!

Grandma Sue and Grandpa David had brought gifts for all! She made me a fabulous apron and a homemade cookbook with all of Grandma LaRue's recipes!! Yeah!

Aaron got some new shirts so he could color coordinate with my fancy new apron!

The kids got rich!

The next day we walked along the Virgin River, found an old water pump station and went down in a manhole. The boys were in heaven!

We also searched for lizards, rockchucks, spiders, and anthills in the rocks along the river. What did we find instead? Golfballs!!

The trip ended with some time by the OUTDOOR pool! Unbelievable that we could swim outside during March, and ENJOY it!

I'm glad you guys had such a fun time in Sunny St. George. I CAN'T wait to go!! And what a nice compliment about your scent :) At least it was a woman commenting and not a man. :) Oh, and Brian couldn't believe that the kids and I each had 2 cookies at the open house, I'm glad that we weren't the only ones. ;)

I wanna go! How come it wasn't a trip for the Hebers and Amy? I'm glad you guys had a good time. I love your apron. So cute.

What a wonderful weekend! I was hoping you would bring some of that warm & sunny St. George weather home with you:)! LOVE the apron!

Wow, what an adventure! Most parents would have deemed climbing down in a manhole a tad too dangerous for their young children, but not Aaron and Ness!
