May 17-29, 2013. St. George!

A couple of weekends ago we took a quick trip down to St. George. It was so nice to get away from all the responsibilities at home and just enjoy being together as a family. We left early Friday morning, and got down there shortly after lunch. The kids were awesome in the car, but anxious to get out and move around once we got there! Sophie probably asked "Are we there yet?" a million times during the drive. We couldn't check into our condo yet, so we killed some time climbing the rocks at Pioneer Park. The kids loved this and had such a great time. After getting our wiggles out, we checked into our condo, met up with a friend of Logan's, and spent the evening swimming and eating pizza. The kids were in heaven with tv's in their rooms. We barely even knew they were with us!

Day Two
Our second day we woke up and headed to the BMX track! The boys had fun racing, and the girls were good sports about playing in the dirt most of the morning and afternoon! Both boys had great races and showed off their skills. It is so fun for me to get to watch them race. Even Ruby raced...dress and all! In the end there were enough trophies to go around!

After the races, we had lunch at Zion and then rewarded the girls with a trip to the petting zoo where we fed the most eager alpaca's I have ever seen! They sure were cut though!! The kids ran around a little bit and then we headed back to wash all the dirt off of us at the swimming pool!

Day Three
We packed things up and headed into Zion for a short hike before making the drive back home. I am always amazed at how beautiful Southern Utah is. The kids did great on the way up, but let's just say there were quite a few tears shed on the way down! Little legs get so tired so quickly!

After our hike, we headed home! Until next time St. George!!!

Is it just me or is Sophie starting to look a lot like Andrea when she was little? Especially the picture where she is feeding the alpaca.
