St. George

A week ago we went down to St. George with Damon's twin and his family. My sister-in-law's grandmother has a condo down there so we got to stay there.  The condo was in a nice subdivision with a nice pool and playground.  So you can just guess where the girls always wanted to be.  They loved the pool, and with the weather being in the high 90's who wouldn't.  We were there for 3 nights which was just perfect. 

One of the days we spent up at Zions National Park.  It was beautiful!  We did a nice hike and got to walk under a waterfall.  I was so proud of Olivia, she hiked up the whole thing and did a really good job keeping up.  Sophie got it easy and got to ride in BOB, lucky girl!
On our first morning there Damon and I were actually able to go the St. George Temple it was so beautiful inside, I loved it!  It was such a nice moment on our vacation to go and do that.
The trip was a nice break, we had such a fun time with everyone and all the cousins had so much fun playing together.

On our way to the pool!
Look at that cute ruffle bottom!
Swimming with daddy!
Having fun with cousin Alyssa!

Oh its so bright!

For Nanny...

My mom is in Wales right now taking care of my grandmother, and I was told by my dad that I needed to add some pictures to the blog because she was going through grandchildren with drawl. So these are for my mom. They were taken last night before bed. We have been spending LOTS of time outside enjoying the sunshine.

Oh and the last two pictures are from what I got this morning at Bountiful Baskets. Quite the assortment of fruits and veggies!

Preschool Graduation..

A couple of weeks ago Olivia had her preschool graduation!  Unfortunately on that day she was not feeling good at all, so the picture below is the best one we got.  We just loved the preschool she went to.  Teacher Nisha is such a great teacher and has a wonderful preschool set up in her basement.  Olivia loved going to preschool and is really going to miss Teacher Nisha.  Graduation was a cute little program with some songs and counting and saying their ABC's.  Teacher Nisha made all the kids scrapbooks of things they had made throughout the year, it was great to see just how much Olivia has grown this past year.
