There's no place like home!

We have been in sunny St. George for the last 10 days and time has passed by SO quickly. It has been great to see all of our family and friends again. Unfortunately Scott only got to spend a week here with us but it sure was a fun one.

We arrived on July 3rd and got to celebrate the 4th of July with family, food, and fireworks. The following Monday we headed down to Las Vegas to see the Lion King at the Mandalay Bay. While kicking around we also went to the Shark Reef & Aquarium there and the Bodies display at the Luxor. We spent the night at the Wynn and headed home Tuesday.

Wednesday we we went up to our cabin in Kolob. I got to go last year when we were here but Scott had not been there since Easton was 3 months old. He was excited to go there again and relax a bit. The weather there is always dramatically cooler so it was also great to escape the heat.

Friday and Saturday we hung out with the rest of the family which also included taking a new family picture. I think Mia was 3 months old in the last one we had taken. It's always quite the orchestration with all the little kids but everyone was pretty cooperative for the most part.

We have 3 1/2 more weeks to soak it all in . . . then it's back to the Palmetto State!

Love the family photos... You all look fabulous! One of these days maybe we'll happen to be in Santa Clara at the same time. Hope all is well.

Well, had I known you should have come to visit with me and Angie yesterday. Looks like you are having a nice and relaxed time. I just discovered Krave yesterday by Great Harvest. Have you taken the kids there?
