West Fest

We LOVE the West Fest!! This year we started out Saturday by me running the 5K race with my good friends Niki & Kelli. We had a blast running together like always.

After the race Mark had found the perfect spot to watch the parade...nice and shady! We watched the parade and the kids gathered as much candy as they could. Here are some pictures from our favorite entries.

Marks Jr. High....go crusaders!!

After the parade we wandered through the park and had some delicious lunch.

Then it was home for much needed naps. We went back later that evening and took the girls to the carnival. They LOVED the rides!!

After the carnival it was time for the fireworks. Kenya did NOT like them. She gripped onto me and tried to hide. Every once in a while she would look up to the sky. She was more afraid of the loud booms than anything.

We had a great day spending time together!

What do you do when you are finished eating??? Kenya loves to put her food in her hair or on the floor or in her chair....anywhere but the tray!

Home Again ~ Day 9

Day 9:

Before we left St. George heading home Mark took the girls swimming one last time!

We had a great time on vacation and the girls had so much fun playing with all their cousins. But all good things come to an end, unfortunately it was time for us to return home. We had a surprise waiting for us when we returned.....A HUMMINGBIRD NEST!!

The hummingbird made it right on our front porch. Tali loves to watch the bird from our front window and she reminds everyone to be quiet when they leave so they will not disturb the bird!

Bye Bye Vegas....Hello St. George ~ Day 8

Day 8:
Our vacation was coming to an end. We were all sad to leave Las Vegas but excited to get to St. George and stay one more night so I could run in the midnight 5K!

Isn't she cute??

Once we were in St. George and settled in our motel the kids were dying to go swimming...don't ask me why. Maybe because it was a new pool to check out! We stayed at the Crystal Inn which when I was going to Dixie was the Hilton. My roommates and I used to sneak in and go swimming in this same pool!!

At friends...AGAIN!!

After dinner we went to the city park and let the kids play.

We headed over to Southgate Golf Course around 10:30 PM. I picked up my packet and got ready to run! I was really really tired, I had been on vacation all week long and all I wanted to do was go to sleep! I was able to finish running the 5K.

My glow in the dark shirt for participating.

After the race....sweaty and hot! It was back to the motel and to bed!!

Vegas ~ Day 7

Day 7:
Thursday was our last full day in Vegas! We all went bowling in the morning. We went to South Point which has a 64 lane bowling alley. We all had a blast. Even the little ones got in on the action and had their own game going on!

Tali jumping up and down after rolling the ball!

After bowling we all hit the swimming pool. You would think everyone would be sick of swimming but not yet! After swimming it was BATH time..

Bubbles Bubbles everywhere...

All cleaned up and now where to go! We needed to start getting our stuff together so we could leave the next day. We all just hung out at the condos played games and packed up.
