St. George

Friday night we headed down to St. George for the weekend.
Darin’s dad was called to be the Stake Patriarch, so we all headed down to be with him.

We got in late Friday night and went right to bed.
(Thanks SOO SOOO much Rich and Rose for letting us stay at your place!)

Saturday morning we headed over pretty early to mom and dad G’s house for birthday pancakes for Matthew!  Then we spent the morning playing with blocks and other toys.

By the afternoon, several other family members had made it over and we had a little BBQ for lunch followed by a little cake and ice-cream.

I think Lindsay got bored waiting for the cake.

Matt’s favorite part was “present time!”

After presents Matt got a fever, cough, runny nose, and was pretty miserable, poor guy.  We left all the kids (minus Matthew) at home with Aunt Vicki (THANKS SO MUCH VICKI!!) and went out to dinner with just the adults, and the sick birthday boy.

Sunday morning we got up early again and headed to Stake Conference.  Both mom and dad spoke and they both did a great job!  After dad got ordained we headed back for some yummy lunch!

The kids all loved being with uncle Darin!

Sunday was Darin’s birthday and mom made him a birthday cake, but we only had 2 candles left after using some from Matt’s bday.  Can't believe he is 32!!

It was fun to be with everyone, but we really missed Janie and the kids, and the rest of Chris’s family.

After lunch we headed home.  We only made is about 3 blocks then Lindsay puked all over herself.  We pulled over, changed her, got her cleaned up, then got going again.  Unfortunately we had to do that three more times on the ride home.  We also had MISERABLE roads, and it took us SIX hours to get home!  I think we’ll be doing a “make-up birthday” for Darin very soon.

Other that the sickness, and the long drive we had a great time!  It was really hard to leave the St. George weather to come home to a new foot of snow, but we were thankful that our neighbors has already shoveled for us so we could pull right in!  We’re so lucky!
