Weekend Fun!

This weekend was a blast! After Austyn and Ciera's wedding (pictures coming soon... I promise!), Mom, Dad, Ricki and I jetted down to St. George to see some sun, see some shows, and just relax. It was exactly the weekend we all needed before wedding planning gets really really busy!
On Friday, we drove down. Then ate some yummy Mexican food, and napped big time. We woke up just in time to hurry and get ready and then go see The Little Mermaid at Tuacahan. Go see it! Amazing what they have done to a disney classic. Everything about that show is so great!

Saturday was filled with lots of fun activities. We woke up and went on a beautiful bike ride through Snow Canyon (My bum still hurts). Ricki got a flat tire, but dad gave him his bike so we could have a ride on our own. I can't get over how beautiful it was! After that, we ate lunch at the Pizza Factory then went back and spent some quality time at the pool. The afternoon was filled with a nap, going to the theater to watch SUPER EIGHT (such a great flick), ate some Thai food at Benja's and then back to Tuacahan to see Grease!

Sunday we woke up early and went to church (always the best way to start a sunday). Next it was off to breakfast at The Bear Paw followed by an incredible hike to some water fields and little lake/ponds to swim in! The hike was so fun and so beautiful. Ricki is quite the mountain climber! I had lots of fun with him climbing all the red rock. I fell right towards the end and have some sweet scratches on my back to prove it, but it was fun nonetheless! After the hike we went back to the pool-- I read a great book called Love the One You're with by Emily Giffin, she is a great author! Then another nap, and getting ready to go to ANASAZI steakhouse. This was one of the coolest eating experiences I have had in a long time. It is fondue to the extreme, and cooking your own food on hot rocks! If you are ever in St. George going to eat there is a must. and the owner Jessica is a complete doll!! After eating ourselves silly we went back and watched the Heat/ Mavs game (while mom and I read some more). Then off to bed with our extremely exhausted selfs!

this was about ten seconds before I fell. You can see why!

Monday came and it was Dad's Birthday! (I won't share how old he is). We went on a bike ride around the Virgin River. It is full of water and so beautiful! Then we went back, packed, and went to Sweet Tooth Fairy for celebratory cupcakes. Then it was on our way to rainy Sandy! I loved this weekend and haven't had this much fun in a while.

Thanks mom and dad for the awesome weekend!

On a side note... I got mom addicted to this... and it is so fun to swap ideas back and forth!

  1. My friend from work who went down to St.George also for the weekend same the same show. She said the little Mermaid and Grease but she said that the Little Mermaid was way far the best. Glad you all had a great time down in St. George! We all want to say Happy Birthday Uncle Dan!
