st george

we had a fun week in st george. ben had a trade show down there for work...and we were able to go along with him. we invited my mom to come with us, too..and larry and darla were there as well :). it was a lot of fun! my mom celebrated her birthday with us down there...
here we are on her birthday hiking around the red rocks above st george...
we all loved it...ben scaling the rocks...for dinner we went to pirate island...a really fun place (i'm so excited..the one in orem is opening in about a month)! they have more than just pizza..i don't know why it say's 'pizza'..but it's a really cool pirate themed restaurant. the decorations and atmosphere are awesome..a lot like rain forest cafe, but just pirate style :)... my mom and kaden & i...the birthday girl in her birthday hat (it was actually the kids menu..so cute, huh? it folded into a pirate hat)!... they had an arcade...kaden loved the shooting gallery... ben & gavin...cute, cute...they have fun caves you eat in...the gang during dinner...they had a little pirate ship play place for the kids to climb/slide on... after dinner we came home and had cake...this was her 'official' birthday cake since it was her actual birthday :)... mom and her 2 favorite people blowing out her bday candles :)...isn't this next photo awesome?! we went to snow canyon and hiked around one night. i took this pic of ben & the boys while we were on top of one of the mountains (giant petrified sand dune)..so cool..backtracking a little bit...daddy & his little side kick hiking up the mountain...just havin' fun... a pretty cactus growing out of the rock...we were pretty proud of kaden & gavin...we hiked a ways up the mountain & they never complained once (you can tell how far we went by our little suv in the far distance..and we still went a lot further). they loved it, and walked most of the way up & down!two peas in a pod digging a hole in the dirt :)...kaden playing around on the motorcycle rack... here's the boys getting a drink after our hike :)...splish splashin' in our tub that night :)...we took a drive to pine valley one afternoon & had a picnic on a little doc. it was really pretty! the boys threw all their chips into the water during lunch...they kept saying that they were feeding the fish :)...swimming in our pool one night... we went and visited daddy & grandpa at the trade show...the boys loved walking around the convention with daddy...and especially loved all the free stuff you'd get at all the different booths :)...we were able to get together for lunch on friday with my aunt robin and cousins, audra & janet (they live in st george)...it was so good to see them!! love you guys!...and here's some pics of us in our condo...the boys LOVED being outside the whole time we were down there..they especially loved searching for lizards out on our back porch :)... we went to the CUTEST cupcake shop/bistro called 25 main. I loved this place! i'm going to have to feature them on my cupcake blog :)...gavin eating his cuppy :)...dino tracks.... we went to a place called dino tracks one night...here's the boys digging in the sand pit there... my aunt told us about a fun water park for the kids...so we went and checked it out. the kids had a blast. i know that these pics look like it was really cold..but it was 85 degrees outside! just cloudy :)... they had a main fountain place with tons of water shooting up out of the ground...they had another section with waterfalls and streams for the kids to play in...
i love this pic :)....and that's a wrap....a picture overload, too :). brianna, i'm so sad i didn't get a picture with you & your cute kids! it was so good to see you! next time for sure..

It looks like you have do much fun. I'm taking my boys down next month. Will you email me the name of all the things that you did so I can take my boys (especially the water park). Thanks

Your boys looked like they had a great time. That's a LOT for little guys to do - kudos to you for entertaining them like that. They look very close in age...I don't THINK they're twins, but....? Maybe I'll find the answer somewhere in your blog history. :)
