St George...Again

We escaped to St. George over the weekend. We had a great time as always. The reason for this trip was Uncle Jake. He had a work conference in Vegas, he came a little early so we could all hang out. I feel like you've seen these pictures before, but I still wanted to document our weekend. So here you go!
While we were there we celebrated Jake's birthday with a delicious home cooked meal. Turkey, mashed potato's, gravy, hot rolls, veggies, pink salad, and yummy Oreo dessert! It was all sooo good! I tried to get a pic of the crowded table. My kids take up half the table by themselves!
We had a great weekend. Trent did a little running and Don Pedros. I did a little (okay a lot) of shopping and In & Out. It is sad that we have to split up to enjoy things. But, it's just not that fun to take the furious five to a sit down restaurant or shopping. So we took turns having some time off. Thanks again to Brad & Teri for providing the lodging! It really is a piece of heaven!
(And I am bummed about the dinner pic. I still don't know how to work my camera that well. Sarah or Karina, any suggestions to get everyone (or at least one person!) in focus???)

I'm jealous (once again) that you got to enjoy some more warm weather! It will be nice when we get some of that warm air here! I can't wait!

Karina said...

so so jealose.. Kamryn keeps asking to go swimming in a pool, and Im not sure where she is getting this from either. Cant wait until SUMMER!

I am actually still trying to figure out the whole focusing thing myself.... areyou just shooting in auto mode or are you using a different setting???

What a fun weekend, glad you guys got to get away and enjoy a little warm weather. The weather is the one thing I don't miss about living in Bountiful (in the winter that is.) Loved your post on pirate teeth...we've used the scary teeth pictures before too. Madison has her first dental appt. next week so we will see if the threatening paid off. :)

Looks like a blast! I could use some of that warm weather! The picture of the teeth is absolutely disgusting. I showed my boys as teeth brushing motivation too!

I love how your kids take up one whole side of the table - - hilarious. Your kids are so cute :) You must get stares every where you go.....

I miss you guys already! I had so much fun with you and your kiddios! I just can't get enough of them! Ummm... I also decided I spent WAY to much money! Oops! :)

Amber said...

Looks like fun! I am jealous that you guys were swimming!

Sarah said...

I love all the photos and am jealous you get to go to St. George so often.

I have that trouble too when taking group shots but have found if I zoom the lens out as far as possible it doesn't just focus on one person or area. I am {finally} taking an advanced camera class 3/19 so I will let you know if I learn any cool tricks/tips.

FUN! always enjoy great St. George pics AND thinking of your bread rolls is making my mouth water even as I'm typing! Yum!

You guys are always doing something fun! We were in St. George as well! To bad we didn't run into each other. I admire your 40 day fast from spending! I don't think I will be joining you! Seeing that in the next forty days I will be fat and sick or just fat with a failed IVF I may need some serious shopping. Maybe next time eh? Good Luck!
