Weekend Fun

We had everyone here this weekend. Jenna, Jared and the kiddos came in Friday. Marilyn and I cooked an Asian meal (fried shrimp, egg rolls, etc.) for dinner. On Saturday, Jared and Jonah went to the store to get things for the evening meal. Justin was off, and Keelie cooked lunch for all of us. It was a beautiful afternoon; the kids enjoyed playing outside. Saturday night, Marilyn, Jared and I cooked Mexican food; we had a lot of food!

After church and lunch yesterday, Jared and Jenna packed up to go home.

Girls' Utah Trip

We just spent eight days in the southern Utah area. We flew into St. George, Utah. We explored the "Mighty Five National Parks," two state parks, and two Navajo tribal parks. We actually were in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada on one or two consecutive day all with different time zones.

Our national parks in order of our favs were:

Bryce Canyon National Park (the hoodoos)

Capitol Reef National Park

Arches National Park

Canyonland National Park

Zion National Park

We got to spend the night in Monument Valley on Friday.

Saturday morning we took a Cultural Navajo Tour. Our guide was terrific, and we learned so much about their life.

On Sunday, we went to Page, Arizona where we did the Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Overlook Tour. It was fantastic. The slot canyons are magnificent and definitely were an overall favorite for the whole trip!

We were so close we drove to Las Vegas. We spent one night downtown which was a treat; I had stayed on the strip but never downtown.  We went back to St. George and flew home Tuesday evening. What a trip!

Keeping the Grands

Justin and Keelie went on an early birthday trip for Keelie's upcoming 40th Tuesday through Saturday. John and Alicia went with them to New Hampshire and Vermont.
We had Jonah, Glory and Molly while Mary had the Gage boys. Marilyn also had Fitz for the week. So we stayed busy and on the go.

A few pics to tell the story.....
