Family Vacation to St. George for girls Dance competition

We got to St. george at about 4:00 the girls were so excited. We get into the room, there is screaming and huvering over Crew explaining the motel and how much fun he is going to have on his first vacation. Of course he didn't understand a word but sure smiled and giggled with them. Click on page to enlarge!!!

Thursday night when we got there, we decided to check out Pirate Island Pizza ( Thanks Shelley for the tip) It was a lot of fun. You walk in and the walls are painted like sky. Everything was pirate themed. I just found out that one is being built in OREM. We are excited. We loved it. the food was good and reasonably priced, the girls enjoyed the game room, and the whole theme of the resteraunt was awesome. Our waiter was even in character. Click page to enlarge

We woke up Friday morning, and were ready for fun! We headed over to Fiesta family fun. First we rode the Go-carts, then mini golfed and of course the girls had to go play in the arcade room. they came home with all kinds of prizes from the tickets they won. Click on pages to enlarge.

next we headed over to the miniature golf course they had. Click page to enlarge.

Since we could see the temple from th fun center, we decided to drive over there to take a better look. I was so surprised that there was not an Angel Moroni on top. I thought they all had one. oh well, it was beautiful. Click page to enlarge.

My dear friend from College- Kelsi and her family met up with us at Fiesta fun that night to play games and chat. Thanks Kelsi for coming to watch the girls perform too! It was so good to see them. The girls friend Jesslyn and my friend Shelley- her mom and their family came too. It was a fun get together.

I cannot believe how good the girls did that night on their Duo! They blew me away. No wonder they won first. They did awaesome on their dances Saturday for teams too.


Scott really wanted to go to get a caramel apple- (another tradition of ours)at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory for his Birthday. The girls also had some money they wanted to spend so we headed to the factory outlet stores. Of course they had no caramel apples made.Poor Scott :( But MaKayla found rocks to add to her rock collection and both girls found great deals at the Childrens place.

It has become a tradition that after the team dances we all go back to the hotel and have a huge swim party. Since it was windy outside, the outdoor pool was out so everyone squezed into the tiny indoor pool. The girls all had fun, except Kenzie who wasn't feeling very well.. Click on page to enlarge.

After the swim party we all headed for Karens room to view all the dances and to celebrate Scotts birthday which was that night. he turned 35. What a way to spend your birthday- with a bunch of teenage girls singing to you. Karen's was the next day- Sunday so we celebrated with cupcakes.


Our last and final stop on the way out of town was Pioneer park, we wanted to take some pictures and let the girls get out and climb for a bit. it is so beautiful. Click pictures to enlarge!

Yuck!!!! We had to drive home to a blizzard. I was in capris and flip flops and froze my butt off.

you are so great at taking pictures. I always think I am taking too many and then get home and wish I had more. Thanks for hanging out with us. I wish we had gone for a longer amount of time. It was fun!

I think it's wonderful that you were able to get so much done in one weekend. I need to start thinking like you- I wouldn't have done much at all except for the competition. Look at how much your family was able to do!

I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
