St. George Spring Break

We went to St. George to find some sun (along with what seemed like half the state) over spring break. We drove down on Thursday and arrived at noon. We spent a couple hours at Jason's sister Keri's house and then we all (her younger kids, us, grandma and grandpa) went to play in the sand dunes up snow canyon.
The girls adored the time in the sand! It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip!
That night we ate dinner with even more family (Todd's family joined us) and then did a quick drive through Zion.
The next day we spent our whole time at Zion! Eliza is one amazing little hiker! We hiked to all of the emerald pools (lower, middle and upper) and took the long way down. She kept up! She had help from her big girl cousins and eventually bonked, but she probably hiked 6 miles on her own that day and all uphill!
After a lovely lunch, we went to Weeping Rock. Then we all wore out along the River Walk.
Time with family, time in the sun, made for a lovely little getaway. Unfortunately, it did not quench our desire for Disney. But, we do now want to go to Arches.


  1. Amen. The Disney itch is, unfortunately, no less prominent. But I totally want to go to Arches now, too! It should be a fun trip!!!

  2. So fun!! It sounds like you had a great time. I'm sorry I missed you and that we didn't get to hang out!

  3. Looks like a fun trip!

  4. We all had such a great time...we loved watching all the girls dig in the sand together. Good times!

  5. I had so much fun! Thanks for taking us mom and dad!
