Havin Fun In The Sun!

While all of our friends were freezing their bums off last week, we were playing in St. George! It was Greg's final fall break at UVU so we thought that we needed to do something fun, rather than having Greg work full time on those days.

The ride down as one of the most enjoyable that we have ever made. We took the Jeep (despite high gas prices) so we would have more room and someone could be in the back with Olivia. We hooked up a TV and DVD player and Ibby watched movies and played with one of us the whole time. Ibby watched Peter Pan and The Lion King on the way down and loved them to death. She just laughed and sung to all of the music on the movies. It was hilarious.

St. George was beautiful. When we arrived on Wednesday afternoon is was 83 degrees and sunny! Much warmer than the 43 degrees that we had left 4 hours earlier. We were exited and ready to party! The fun began around 11:30 than night when Alex, McCall, Allison, Myken, Ellie, and Zoe arrived. Mom and Doug arrived the next day.

During the six days we were there, we did a lot of fun things, but mostly hung out and relaxed! We went shopping (of course), swam, captured a toad (named Frogger) and made him our house pet, ate out a lot (Wendys, Cafe Rio, Pizza Factory, Chillis, and Paulas), made many visits to to the Dollar Store (our new favorite store for buying worthless, but fun stuff), many visits to Nelsons Frozen Custard, and hiked around the narrows.

While there, we learned a few things about some of the members of our family that we didn't know before. We learned that Zoe is so excited now that she has someone smaller than her to boss around (Olivia). She was calling out orders non stop mostly telling Ibby to stop doing something or to tell her no. She would say, "NO Wibbies!" it was very cute.

We were originally going to come home Sunday night but decided to stay one more night and come home Monday afternoon. It was a great decision and we had a lot of fun that night and the next morning. As you can probably tell, we had an awesome trip! One that will be remembered for a long time.

Here we are at The Narrows. It was fun to just walk around and enjoy the nice weather.

Oh Boy! Just relaxing and being lazy.

On Saturday, Greg surprised me with tickets to go see Odyssey Dance Theater's Thriller! I was so excited! I've wanted to see this for a long time, and I couldn't wait.
So, that night we went to Cafe Rio (my absolute fave), and then headed to the show. This year, they came to the old provo library, so we didn't head up to Salt Lake.
Here's my review of the show:
Though it was fun, it was odd! I was hoping that they would do lots of cool dances, but they didn't. They acted things out instead. There were only like 2 or 3 cool dances. I was kinda disappointed. Overall, Greg and I decided that it wasn't worth the $, so I wouldn't recommend checking it out! Go see a movie instead.
However, it was very sweet of Greg to get tickets and be willing to sit through a dance show. Though the show wasn't that great, we had a fun and much needed date night.

The Alpine Loop

Our little family took a drive over the loop on Friday night. It is so gorgeous up in the canyon right now! It was so nice to get out and walk around and enjoy the nice weather and the colored leaves. I just love this time of year!

Some New Pictures

Our hike to Stuart Falls. Olivia loved it! She was so happy to be out! She talked and laughed with everyone that we passed on the trail. it was so cute!
Sweet girl fell asleep right at the end of the hike, so we had to take her out of the Baby Bjorn and carry her because her head was bobbing!
Just a funny picture of Olivia's favorite new thing to do. She loved to crawl to the oven and get the dish towel. She could sit and play with it for hours. What a kook!
