So...regretfully we weren't in St. George for long a couple weeks ago...and I really didn't capture enough pictures. How lame of me. But I will post what I DID take of our short little adventure.
This is my grandma Irene and her husband Jack's little puppy. Her name is Gidgette! Cute huh? She's freaking small and adorable and SO cute to watch play!
I got to play with sweet little Mckenzie Dawn Campbell as well! Kara had JUST taken her hair out and was not impressed to have her picture taken like this--but I think it's PERFECT and sweet! She looks just like Kara, and we had fun watching her play with her doll and all her other toys. She's getting so big so fast! I just love all my friends' babies.
We kinda match eh? We had fun with Kara and Todd playing some game I don't remember the name of...some version of Phase 10. I didn't lose too badly, and I had a GREAT time cracking up with Kara! There's really nothing like old friends :)
K so St. George had some REALLY pretty sunsets while we were there...and I've always loved where my parents live because they get such AMAZING views of them! It was the sunshine after the storm I guess...cuz Friday night was apparently a really big lightning storm. There was a bit of lightning Saturday night, I noticed...so we slept with the blinds open. Really pretty stuff.
We had a good stay in St. George. I had been REALLY homesick and this visit REALLY helped me. It's hard to not live by family and friends. I'm still adjusting to this new life in California...
It was a long time getting to Utah, however, as we missed our plane Friday night due to REALLY long lines at the airport, and stupid employees who didn't help us get to where we needed to be. It was really sad. But we DID get to stay at the Westin Airport hotel that night and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. AMAZING. Anyway...the next day we tried again and finally got to St. George at 4:15 p.m. We couldn't get on the Monday morning flight so we ended up staying till Monday afternoon...so we got almost exactly 48 hours in St. George! We didn't get to see everyone we wanted to see, but we had fun getting Cafe Rio, and visiting my family up in Cedar!
This next segment is dedicated to my crazy animals. I love them SO much and am really sad that we are going to be losing my precious Lady. We are giving her to my parents so she can have a happier life running in their yard. Figaro will be stuck with us for now! :) In the above picture, our cat Zzyzx has just discovered the fish on the tv and wants to play!
Then there's our sweet lady...she found these english muffins on the side of the sidewalk during her walk. this was her third attempt to bring them home..and we finally let her bring them in the apartment. I about died when I saw that she had ONE AND A HALF of them in her mouth! She would eat her own foot if it had some sauce on it. She kills me!
Now we get to show off our cute little "Odd-Son" Lincoln! In case Robyn forgets to post...she officially made Ben and I his "Odd Parents" this last weekend. We LOVE baby Lincoln...he makes us so excited to be parents someday! He's such a perfect sweet baby boy, and this weekend he got to meet his first dogs!
The puppies we REALLY curious about Lincoln too. They wanted to play with him as much as they could!
This is the only picture proving that Tyler was at our house...and Robyn wouldn't allow me to post the picture of she and Tyler together at Pizza D'oro...so...all I have is a picture of Ben and I.
We had a really fun time with the Rowley family, and I'm SO glad they live so close to us! They came Friday night and we all went out for pizza, then had a slumber party. The next day Robyn and I were taking my laundry to the laundry facility at my apartment and as we were passing the pool decided it would be a funny idea to jump in with our clothes on! So....after dropping off the clothes and getting Robyn's camera...we ran to the pool and jumped in! hahaha one of those random moments that makes you laugh for a long time. The look on Ben's face when he opened the door to see us drenched was priceless. I love it. Robyn and I have way too much fun together! :) We spent the day together, and on our way to the beach we were all grateful for a higher power watching out for us, because we almost got in a wreck! Thankfully Tyler has incredible reflexes and Robyn and I have strong lungs for screaming...because we narrowly missed a car that cut us off and turned in front of us as we were about to get on the freeway! IT was really REALLY scary...and baby Lincoln didn't like it at ALL! Thanks again Tyler...for being a safe and alert driver.
We all had a good time at the beach as well finding "sea spoons" to use on our deserted island when we want to cook... hahaha good times. We are grateful once again to live so close to the majestic beauty of the ocean. We are so lucky Heavenly Father created such a beautiful world for us to live in! Thanks again Tyler and Robyn for coming out to have a fun weekend with us!
