sunny st. george

Last Thursday Adam, Brooks, and I drove down with my parents [who flew in from Vancouver, WA] to St. George to be with by brother Justin and his family...this weekend was extra special because it was my nephew's 8th birthday and he was getting baptized! We love you Tyler!

Friday morning we headed to a fun park for Tyler's birthday party. We had a ball! It was so fun seeing Brooks explore and enjoy himself on the swings, the playground, and the sweet little water/sprinkler area. After presents and cupcakes (my sweet nieces and I decorated them, so fun! My sister-in-law Kristen got the idea from here) the boys had a water fight!! Adam got into it and had a blast with those boys :)
Our little party animal zonked right out on our way home from the park...so after a nice, long nap Brooks enjoyed their bouncing away on their rocking horse, and "playing" some tunes on the piano with his darling cousin Graci.

Later we headed to this fun community pool. Soaking up some sun and spending time with my family...doesn't get much better :)

Saturday morning was Tyler's baptism.
{ 2 other boys were baptized as well, Tyler is on the far right in the photo below }
It was a beautiful day, and Tyler was just beaming with pride :)
I was honored to be able to speak at the baptism...I loved being apart of such a special day for him. We're so proud of our nephew for making the choice to be baptized and officially become a member of the church! :)
That afternoon we were able to meet up with one of Adam's best friends from growing up and grab some frozen yogurt. It was great catching up with Quin, such a great guy :) But we missed his sweet wife Dani! Hope she's feeling better!
Then Saturday night we had a family pizza party in their backyard...we devoured watermelon, played blind-capture-the-flag, did some more swinging, and even got our basketball-on :)
Little B was making the rounds for that pizza ;)

Sunday we a gorgeous day as well!
It's been cooler in Utah, and for St. George that means in the 80's...perfect!
After church we took naps, and enjoyed some great visits :) Soaking up every minute we had left...we ate a way too much for dinner, then packed up and hit the road for home sweet home. It was sad leaving, but we hope we'll be back soon! Justin and Kristen were such great hosts :)
The drive home was beautiful...and Adam and I talked the whole way. Neither one of us slept once!! Pretty epic in our little road trip record ;)
Here's to sun-filled weekends with family :)
