Family time hiking the Narrows!

Since I am a slacker about updating my blog I decided I better add a post at least once a month...Saturday the girls and I and a good friend of ours hiked the Narrows in Water Canyon. It was a beautiful day for a hike and we totally took it slow and 4 normally about an hour hike up and back if you hurry. Oh well...i decided its way more fun to stop and smell the roses...or cactus apples :) I have always loved hiking but kinda fell out of the groove when I had kids SO this summer we have set a goal to go on at least one hike per week!! Hopefully it will help me get in better shape and teach the kids to enjoy the beautiful country were surrounded by! Overall it was a wonderful day filled with fun memories:):)

Family...thats what it's all about!!

A few months ago my Sister Rula and I and our kidlets decided to spend an afternoon at the Dixie rocks above St George. The kiddos had SO much fun roaming the hills, finding caves and having a picnic...not to mention it was cheap family entertainment:) I LOVE to hike and be in nature..makes me wonder why we don't do it more often. I am SO thankful to have been born into a big family >>that is truly where I find my happiness in life. How lonely would life be without them?

Weekend getaway :)

A few weekends ago the girls and I rodded off into the sunset and spent a few days in SLC for Lindsay's volleyball tournament. Since one of the days happened to be a Sunday we desided to go to the temple grounds and feel the good spirit there and maybe snap a few pics. It was beautiful as always and the spring blossoms were in full bloom. I have never been inside of an LDS temple...YET. I hope that someday I can experince being sealed together as a family for time and all eternity.
