St. George Part Final

Just some last cell phone pics from our trip.

Lizzy had one really rough night, but was good after that.

They were outside bright and early every day...even in jammies.

We also got to visit the children's museum with Grandpa and Kathy again the next day.






We also got to go SWIMMING! All the girls had a total blast. And apparently it makes you hungry...


Although to be fair, eating fantastic food was probably our favorite part of the trip...



Swimming is exhausting by the way

We hit a great BBQ place with our friends Ben and Nikki who also happened to be in St. George that weekend.


Ben decided to point out that we were terrible picture takers and to at least try and look like we like each other.


These two...it was Ben's birthday so we had a lot of fun and hit up the new X-Men movie after.


Mickey Mouse pancakes!

Thank heavens for movies in the car to make it home

This is what I came home to after a quick errand when we made it back home


And, this is my husband ladies and gentlemen. Found this in dropbox. It was not his only "I'm so cool" selfie...



Quotes from Bella

Me: How big is Daddy?
Bella: He's as big as you!

Daddy: "Do you want to go on a hike Bella?"
Bella: "Yay! I'm so excited to go on a hike!......Hey, Mama? What is a hike?"

While playing hide and seek at the park
Bella: "Mama, you stay here and I'm gonna go hide in the tu...BIRDIE!!!"

Birdies are to Bella what the squirrels on Up are to the dogs. She stops whatever she's doing and runs after them screaming if she sees one.

During Family Home Evening last week while talking about the Plan of Salvation:
Me: "Bella, do you know where you lived before you were born?"
Bella: "In the red houses by the park!" (Our apartment where she was born... )

During Family Home Evening this week while talking about reverence:
Daddy: "What is this a picture of?"
Bella: "A family being reverent!"
Daddy:" Good. And where are they?"
Bella: "At church!"
Daddy: "Good! How do we know they're at church?"
Bella: "Cuz they drove there!"

St. George Part 3

We also got to have lots of fun at Grandpa's house

Bubbles using bendy straws...so cool!





Lizzy just loved going round and round the backyard.

Yes, it's the same picture. I just like playing with the color sometimes and this one turned out so cute.


Biker chick

After the bubbles were done the pan of soapy water apparently looked like fun.





Barefoot at the park...We only lasted about 15 minutes before it was too blasted hot...at 9:30 in the morning.

Window shot! Can you tell I'm having fun with my photography lately?



Lizzy and Grandpa

 A quick picture of all of us. Thanks for a great trip Grandpa and Kathy!
