Labor Day Weekend

So for Labor Day weekend we went down to St. George to see my parents and Kelly and her family came up from Phoenix to spend the weekend as well! I was so excited to see my family again! I just wish that Brett, Lauren, Brick and Mikey could all be there!

I went down early to spend some time with my mom considering I dont have anything else to do...and I took the shuttle down. It wasnt too bad except having to be at the pickup by 7:30am! But it was nice just to spend some time with my parents just me.

Brent and Kelly and the girls came on Friday afternoon and of course we had to do some shopping! Here are the girls saying hello to Annie when they got there!

That night we went to Pizza Factory (a must when Brent comes to Utah...he misses his alfredo tomato and ham pizza! yum!) Scott came down later that night and we all just talked and hung out.

Brent left early Saturday morning up to Provo to go to the first BYU game with his parents and we headed up to Kolob Resevoir. It is much higher so it is not as hot as St. George! It was only 79 degrees up there and it was lovely!

My dad brought his "boat" as the girls called it and Scott was an awesome Uncle and took Hailey and Natalie out on the lake.

Here are some more pictures of our adventure!

On Sunday we all woke up early and went to church. The girls were so excited that they got to be "visitors" because everyone sang the welcome song to them. Brent got home and we had a really good Lasagna that my mom made. It was a white lasagna with chicken sausage, spinich and mushrooms.

After dinner we decided to go for a walk and then ride some bikes. Hailey (my oldest niece) has a bike that Grandpa bought her and Grandpa wanted to see if she remembers how to ride the bike. And of course she did. Kel and Brent also brought Nattie bike to try and get her to ride as well.

Kelly even got on my dad's bike and too it for a ride!

That night we just played some games with the adults, had some nice discussions about politics...and just enjoyed one another.

Monday morning we went out to breakfast at Cracker Barrell that was delicious and then Brent and Kelly and the girls had to head home. We were sad to say goodbye, but hopefully will see them again soon! Scott, me and my parents tried to get my dad an iTouch, but Costco was instead we just went back home and relaxed. Then for lunch we went to one of our favorite restaurants, Panda Garden. Then we headed home.

We loved the weekend that we got to spend with our family and cant wait until we can spend more time with them! Thanks mom and dad for hosting and Kelly and Brent for coming! We love you guys! And cant wait to have the rest of our family out here as well hopefully some time in the near future!
