Spring Break 2010

We just got back from a great spring break in St. George. The weather wasn't as warm as it usually is this time of year, but it was a whole lot better than it is here! And it is so great to see the beautiful, green grass and palm it! We ate tons of food, visited a lot of people and made it to Snow Canyon (on a super windy day). We had a wonderful time and were so happy to spend time with my Dad, who was able to be down for the weekend and Heather and her cute family, who live in St. George. We also visited the Young's (friends we hadn't seen in years) and got to visit the Szymanski's in Kanab. I think I could have handled a few more days down there, but alas, we had to come back. Back to real life. I love vacations, but I hate cleaning up. Thats what I'm doing today. Here are some pictures from our trip. There's lots of them!

Kate and Grandpa- she LOVES him so much and gets so excited to see him!
Emma didn't even want to golf. She was so content pushing baby cousin, Claire, in the stroller the whole time.
Grandpa and the boys. You gotta love Parker's goggles- he refused to take them off.
"Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters.."

Kate thought throwing the balls was the best part of golfing
So fun to be with cousins!
Heather and I did eggs with the kids while the menfolk went to priesthood
Beautiful Easter eggs!
Even though the air was cool, the spa was warm and they loved it!

Cute girls swinging
This was at the Young's in Toquerville. I could have stayed in this hammock all day long! It's right next to a river and the temperature was just perfect!

Emma loves puppies- isn't this one adorable!
Having her own fun while the other kids were in the hot tub

Just chillin' in Heather and Brent's hot tub!
My cute hubby and my cute kids
Love these guys!

I love their happy smiles- check out Kate!
It was sooooo windy- like my hair?
She loved it, even though she was unsure of the wind and sitting on this little ledge
The boys were on a big hill and that is our car they are pointing to

I love spring break...even when it's not too springy. We stayed home and faced the chill and snow. I long for warm days!!!

It was so fun to spend time with you. You are so pretty in every picture. My kids had so much fun with their cousins. I wish we could have had more time to sing at the piano, maybe next time. Thanks for everything. I know we teased you about Sunday dinner but everything was perfect. Thanks for the suggestions!!!

Daisy Chick said...

How fun. I'm so glad you had a great time. What fun pictures. I can't believe how big the kids are getting. Love you and miss you. Hopefully we will be able to get together and catch up soon.

It looks like you had a great trip, I am glad you got to get away with your family. Enjoy the rest of Spring Break

Lisa said...

Wow, you got some great pics! It's nice to see your dad there having fun with all of you. Btw, I might kick you out of that looks all too glorious!

Visits are never long enough, are they? We LOVED having you guys over and thanks again for making the effort to driving out to "no man's land"! Love the pics from snow canyon! Something about the red rocks that I've grown to love! We also can't stop talking about how cute Kate is...what a character! Love ya, Jen!

I am so glad you had fun with Heather and her family and your Dad. We started the tradition after your Mom and Dad of doing our eggs on Friday night and then having the Easter Bunny come Saturday morning.
We've been doing this for years so we can separate the "bunny" part from the "sunday" part and also because Joe was so involved on Sunday mornings like your Dad, and so we could focus on what Easter was really about.
I am grateful now that we have a tradition that was YOUR family's.
