Trip to St. George



This weekend we went on a real vacation (not one in our living room or backyard) but a little trip down to St. George! We had a wonderful time!! We ate a lot of yummy food and went to several fun places including Snow Canyon, Zion’s National Park, a Corn Festival, Mountain Meadow Massacre Memorial and other fun drives. We also had plenty of time for R&R! We took down the Wii and went golfing, bowling, and played other fun games. Matthew and Darin did especially great! Matt only bowled one time, but got a strike! And Darin got 6 strikes in a row!!! Thanks Mom and Dad for the WONDERFUL weekend!! We had a blast! Here are a few pictures from the weekend.






Trip to Ancient Greece

Darin, Matthew, and I took another vacation, but this time we took along our friends Bridget and Dane! For this vay-cay we went to none other than ancient Greece! (complete with togas). On the menu we had gyros, salad, and pitas with some AMAZING humus that Bridget made!!! She even made a stencil to add a decorative swirl of paprika on top (how cute is she!?) Darin also made the cute leaf head dresses seen below.

A special thanks goes out to my mother for all her help planning, and to my grandma and grandpa for letting us use their yard, table, chairs, authentic d├ęcor, the flags, and so much more!! We had a great time! The best part is that Dane is going to be a pilot, so maybe next time we will get a chance to go to real Greece!! Ha ha!! Thanks again for coming guys!! We love you! Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment!
