St.George Spring Break

We had a wonderful spring break. We left on Friday afternoon to head for St. George. It's the farthest we've ever done a car trip with our kids and they did OK. Of course, we had to stop for treats and potty. We had to stop again 15 minutes later in the middle of nowhere for potty again, even though we just went! We had to stop for dinner and we made an extra stop for an irritated Daniel that gave a swift elbow to Landon's face that resulted in a bloody lip and a lost tooth! That's the boys for ya'! We arrived at "Hotel Steurer" and had a fabulous time. We couldn't have asked for a better few days. We went to the Scout Expo on Saturday morning and then to West's for lunch. They came back with us and spent the afternoon in the pool and went out to dinner that night. We went to church with Heather and Brent on Sunday and had dinner and more Wii play at their house. On Monday we went to Snow Canyon and the kids just loved it. The weather was gorgeous and the scenery was truly breathtaking! The kids exceeded my expectations for hiking and had a blast at the petrified dunes. We spent the afternoon swimming again and more fun together. Tuesday we went to the St. George temple visitor center and really enjoyed it. We swam a bit before packing up and heading back to freezing temperatures in Lehi. We experienced a 55 degree drop from the time we left until we got home. Yuck! It was so nice to be in sunny, warm, green weather. We really had a fun time and enjoyed every minute. Oh...except one minute. That was the minute Richard had already been in the pool for ten minutes and said "Oh no!!" He had jumped in the pool with our digital camera in his pocket. Miraculously our memory card was OK, but the camera is a loss. Sooooo sad!! So these may be the last pictures I can post for a while until we get a new camera. I'm just glad these pics were saved- hope you like em!

How fun Jen! That's so great that you could go stay at the Steurer's! I'm wishing that could have been another girls weekend for us! Especially since it's been snowing here! That's awesome that your memory card didn't get ruined. The pictures are so cute! Too bad about your camera. I guess Richard is pretty blonde. :) JUST KIDDING RICHARD!
