st. george!

So unfortunatley we are back from vacation and trying to adjust to reality!! We were actually gone a few days longer than planned because we were having so much fun we didn't want to come home - ecspecially because it was snowing at home! Its a good thing Dean was able to work from the condo - it made it nice and we didn't feel so rushed to get home.

We went down for this mountain bike race. Dean raced with his cousin Dustin - Casey was injured so didn't race but came to play with us. He did really well for his first race - didn't come in last - so that was all he cared about. The boys were so proud and LOVED watching him - even though we could really only see him start, come around the first lap and finish - it was still great. Next year i think the boys will do the kids course. This is Dean crossing the finish line~
Mason, Ethan and Josie (bobbie and casey's daughter) - having fun on the slides.
Baylee living it up in the swings enjoying the sunshine!

My kiddosCute family picture at Red Rock park - this was a great park.Another family pic with Dean's (mine too) niece Haley. She is so darn cute - going to Dixie college. She actually took some time out of her busy college life to come watch all 6 kids while we went to dinner with Dean's aunt and uncle that live down there while its winter up in Ogden. We went to some yummy Brazillian restaruant. This is the kids on the way home - they were so tired and ornery - baylee and Ethan fell asleep for a few hours which was nice - and Mason had his nose stuck in this book most of the ride home (5 hours) - he actually read the entire book during the trip - almost 400 pages. Not sure where he got his love of reading - definatly not Dean or I - but i'm sure glad he loves it. So that's it - we just enjoyed the weather and played outside lots - we did swim a few times too - no pressure, no emails, no phone calls (for me anway) - Dean worked quite a bit. We even took the Wii and played some Mario Kart while Baylee took her naps during the afternoon. She was sick and had a low grade fever most of the weekend but was such a trooper!
Believe it or not i havn't scrapped in a few weeks and i'm having a hard time getting in to it right now. I do have a yummy new Studio Calico Kit sitting in front of me that i might have to dig into soon but no scrappy goodness to share right now - other than I do have to say i was pretty excited to get my copy of Creating Keepsakes in the mail when i got home and see 2 of my layouts in the Seasonal Solutions section. Always fun to see your work in print.
