Beating the heat in Pine Valley

We headed for the hills...Pine get out of the St. George heat.
We brought some good food and were ready to enjoy the beautiful evening.  Christian, Crew and Cole with Bailey Peacock came along for the ride.

Kathy and Evan
Cole and Bailey
Had to have a nice roaring fire...
But the grouchy Park Ranger put a damper on our fun.  Why are there so many Park Rangers with BAD attitudes lately?  FUN-SUCKERS!

Ev...tending the fire.

At Dixie Red Hills
We went on a little outing to the Dixie Red Hills. The boys love to run around the gorgeous red mountains. We took lunch and enjoyed the beautiful day because it was nice and cool...for St. George, that is! Crew could hardly sit still to eat his lunch and then he was off and running around. Christian and Cole soon followed. Karli let me take a few photos of her.
She looks so cute! It was a nice day for all of us.
An amazing find...a tortoise. A big guy too!
We were able to wrangle the kids for a family photo.

(Notice that Crew has a shiner from getting Christian's

knee to his eye the other day on the trampoline.)

A day at the park...

We went to the park in downtown St. George with the boys one day. There are some beautiful sculptures there and also a fun water feature that the kids love to play in. This sculpture reminded me of my boys...always in motion! Oh, the wonderful world of boys!

Catchin' the big one!

Cole caught a fish at the Springs Park pond in our neighborhood! The boys have been trying so hard lately to catch one and it finally happened. They were so excited! Of course, they practiced catch and release. Way to go boys!

Mother's Day at Zion National Park

We went to Zion National Park for Mother's Day (Kathy's request).
It was a gorgeous day and we went on a nice hike up to The Narrows. It is a nice, leisurely walk and the kids had fun watching the tame squirrels, lizards, etc. The water at the top of trail was deep and running fast, so we were sure to stay close to the shore. We couldn't have asked for a better day, weather-wise, and such an enjoyable day with the kids. They had a great time exploring everything all the way up and all the way back. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful family!

Poolside BBQ with friends

We had some of our friends over for a BBQ the other night. The kids had fun swimming in the pool. The water is still a bit chilly, but soon enough it will be like a hot tub! The kids in the picture are (L-R): Crew, Cole, Bladen Hosner, Christian, Courtney and Jordan Payne.

Springtime fun...

Dad and Crew...

Cole giving it his all in a Lacrosse scrimage...

he's the one in the middle.

At the St. George Temple grounds

We went to the St. George Temple visitors center to view some sculptures that were there for a limited time. This picture of Crew was taken while we were waiting to go inside and see the sculptures. It was a beautiful spring day. We sure love our "Crew Bear".

Crew is a soccer stud too!

Crew is also playing soccer. He is motivated to get that ball in the goal! He is doing so well and really helps his team out with his skill. Way to go Bear!

Christian plays soccer

Christian is enjoying soccer this spring. His team has only lost one game and he is playing like a true champion! He really gives it his all when he is on the field and he sometimes plays goalie too. We love Christian's spunk and spirit!

Cole playing Lacrosse

Cole is playing Lacrosse this Spring and is loving it! His team is the Red Rock Rattlers. He has a few friends from the neighborhood who join in on the fun.


This picture of the boys was taken at Easter. It's always a wrestle-fest to get everyone to smile at the same time, but in this case it worked out. They all looked so handsome. The Kilbournes came down from SLC and spent Easter weekend with us. We are so blessed to have such an awesome family.
