We Love The Cabin!

Oh Utah..How I love you!

Last Wednesday we headed to Cedar Mtn. for a nice needed break! We left around 1 in the afternoon. We stopped in St. George to eat at Cafe Rio. Then we headed over to the temple to walk around. It so beautiful. I love the spirit we felt there.

We were going to go swimming at a place called Sand Hollow, but we just decided we wanted to get to the cabin. So we drove to Cedar City and then up the mountain to the cabin!

My parent's had already been there for a week. So they were very anxious for us to get there! It was so nice to just hang around in the nice cool weather!

We went on lots of walks. Took lots of naps. Watched lots of movies, and had lots and lots of laughs with family.

Dad had to go home for a couple of days to work Friday. The next day (Saturday) we were meeting MacKenzie on her way down from EFY. We did some shopping in Cedar and ate lunch at Cafe Rio again! I think my husband is a little obsessed! We decided to head to Beaver where the Cache Valley dairy is. We got some yummy ice cream, cheese, chocolate and Utah made honey! Yummy!!

On Sunday, we drove a few miles to this really small town called Alton. We went to sacrament meeting in the smallest chapel I have ever been too! It was a really good sacrament meeting, and we were glad we got to sit in 1 of the maybe 20 soft benches in the chapel. No joke!

Dad came back up Sunday afternoon. Its been so fun for the kids to get some quality Grandpa time!

The rest of the week Kenzie and I made many trips to Tod's Junction. They had free WI-FI, and endless amounts of DP! :)

We made smores and got to actually see stars! Tons of beautiful, bright and huge stars! And it was awesome to have to kids see their first shooting stars! Kelsi kept telling us about all the wishes she was making on them! :)

Tuesday was the sad day we had to clean and pack up! Kenzie drove down to St. George with us to end our trip at Sand Hollow Aquatic center. The kids had a blast!

My parents met up with us after we were done swimming and took us to dinner at Pizza Factory! It was so delicious! Their salad bar is the best!

We had such a great time! We thanked my parents over and over! And we laughed about how good the kids were, there was no drama and that the kids didn't break anything at the cabin!! I love my family so much! And I'm glad we can spend our vacations together and still love one another afterwards!

Happy Birthday Kelsi!

Kelsi turned 4 today! YAY! We are so happy and blessed to have you in our family! You are such a joy to be around! You are constantly singing, dancing and flipping that golden hair around! Anytime you meet someone new you tell them your 18! HAHA! You're such a smart girl! You love to practice writing your numbers and you're working on writing your name! You're mommy's big helper and love your brothers!

It feels like this has been the nonstop celebration of your big day! Last week on the 4th of July, we had a party with the family. You got lots of fun presents!

And then of course we had to stop by 7-11 to get the free Slurpee!!

As soon as Jason got home we headed out to Kelsi's "SURPRISE". Chuck E. Cheese of course!! We were a little weary of taking her there..but we were totally pleased with our time and money spent! The food was decent and we got a great coupon on their website, so we got like 120 tokens! Jason and I even had fun playing a few of the games. It was a nice night!

When we got home we sang Happy Birthday and let her eat her cake that's been in the freezer for a week! :)

Happy 4th of July!!

We spent the day at my parent's house! We swam and BBQ'd! And celebrated Kelsi's bday(more on that in a different post). It was such a nice day! We ate and ate! Then we headed over to my uncle's house for homemade ice cream and fireworks! It was so awesome! Their neighborhood overlooked Aliante, so we got to watch their firework show as well!

My dad bought all these shirts months ago! I'm so glad he did! Because we got some great family photos!! Love him!!
