Zion National Park

On Sunday afternoon, Rachel's mom drove over to our place to pick us up so we could all go to Zion National Park for a Sunday drive. We were planning to go earlier than 5PM, but the girls needed their naps.

So once Kristi arrived, we piled in her car (I say that because I am the one who sits in-between the two car seats in the back) and drove up and into Zion National Park. We made it in and past the long tunnel a little after 6. We found a parking spot along the road and parked to get out and venture around this one area. Since they were doing construction on the road, we had to be out of there by 8PM or who knows, we might have been stuck in there the whole night. But we made it back down the road and stopped at the visitor center... just as they were closing. So we looked around outside the visitor center and then decided that it was getting dark, and we needed to be headed home. It was a short trip into the park, but we had fun.

County Fair and Las Vegas

On Saturday, Rachel, the twins, Kristi and I went to the Washington County Fair around noon time. We stayed until about 2PM before it really got too hot.

Rachel had to work a 4-hour shift, but when she got home, the four of us went back to the fair to ride on the rides since they were not running when we were there earlier. We rode the Merry-Go-Round 3 times since that is all the girls wanted to ride on.

Then on Sunday, Kristi drove the four of us (in her car) down to Las Vegas to visit Heidi, Brian and Rachel's Aunt Jann. We got there and had lunch at Jason's deli. Then we went swimming at Jann's neighbor's house since she was house sitting. After swimming, we all went to dinner at Joe's Crab Shack.

Sorry for the quality of the last picture, but it was taken by an employee at Joe's Crab Shack right in front of a water mister. If you click on it, you can see more detail of Heidi and Kristi gnawing on crab legs.

County Fair and Swimming Pools

On Wednesday, the girls and I (along with their Aunt Aubrey) went to the Washington County Fair. We participated in an ice cream eating contest (a whole gallon was attempted to be eaten) and got to look at all the rides. Too bad the girls didn't want to go on any of them.

And what do you do on a hot Thursday afternoon? Go swimming, of course! The other pool we had was destroyed by a little black dog. Not naming names, but you know who it is.
