Bowling on Father's Day

On Father's Day, we took the girls bowling. This was the first time they had bowled themselves.

30th Birthday

The day started like any other... Being woken up early by the twins. But thanks to Rachel, she took over for an hour or two to let me sleep in. When I woke up, I took over and let Rachel get some more sleep.

A little after 11AM, I decided that it was time to wake Rachel so we could get ready to drive down to Mesquite to meet up with my parents for lunch. After getting ready, we left around 12:30 and made it into Mesquite around 1:15PM MST. Since it was 12:15 (Pacific), we had time to go get something to eat for lunch before the movie started at 2PM (Pacific). We went to McDonald's to eat and to let the girls play in the play area. Well, after eating, we drove over to the theater, purchased our tickets to see Toy Story 3 and sat down. Man, we waited a good 25 minutes before the movie started because the internet said it started at 2PM, but it didn't start until much later. The girls were pretty fine while watching the movie, even without popcorn or drinks.

Once the movie was over, we drove back to the room my parents were staying in and got ready to go swimming. We swam ... I don't know how long, but I'd say that after swimming a while (30 minutes) Ady started getting grumpy and so we decided it was nap time for the girls. Went back to the room and dried off and put them down for naps, along with Rachel and my dad (they went down for naps too), while my mom and I went to go play the slots.

Once we were done, it was getting late and so we decided to wake everyone so we can go get something to eat. Those asleep slowly woke up, but once they were up we walked over to the buffet and ate until we couldn't eat anymore. By this time, it was dark and we knew we had to be getting home soon. So we gathered our things and loaded up the van. We said our goodbyes for the night and drove back home.

And that was my fun filled birthday day.

Zion's Park

On Saturday, after getting home from a computer repair job, Rachel said that Kristi (my mother in law) was going to take the girls swimming. I then found out Rachel was getting ready too and that this was a work party for Kristi that she was going to take them to. Rachel asked if I wanted to come and I said sure. So we packed into Kristi's car and drove up to Cliffrose Inn right near the entrance to Zion's Nation Park.

We made it to the Inn around noon and then let the girls play in the kid area and then we let them swim. But since storm clouds were coming, they didn't swim long. So after getting dried off, we went and ate lunch and then let the girls play with the other kids since there was really nothing else to let them do with a storm heading our way.

After eating and visiting and deciding to head home, we were going to try and drive through Zion's NP before we really headed home. I haven't been in Zion's in Years. The girls loved driving through the mile long tunnel.
