Warmer weather!

Last weekend my mom thought it would be fun to head down to the St. George condo. It was a little spur of the moment, but we weren't going to pass up an opportunity to go somewhere a little warmer. We had a lot of fun!

We played tennis in the Kitchen

Rode scooters

Played video games with uncle Keenan

and ate at Jonny Rockets

Of course us girls couldn't go away for an entire weekend and do no shopping! We drove into Vegas one day to hit our favorite outlets and our favorite mall. While we were at the Fashion Show mall we were able to see all of the Miss America contestants. Maeson thought it was quite awesome!Naturally, she wanted Miss Utahs autograph. While we were waiting for our turn we also got one from Miss Vermont. The first words out of Maesons little mouth were, "We are from Utah too!!" She was so excited!
We couldn't get Den'ja off of this thing. I think we put like 5 dollars into the silly merry go round. Each time it stopped he had to get off the horse he was on and try out a different one and he was waving to everyone like he was the star of a parade. The only bad thing about this little weekend adventure was that I got sick! Seriously sick! We'll just say the ride home included some hurried and unscheduled stops. I jinxed myself before we left by saying, "Ugh, I feel awful....but at least I'm not throwing up". I'm keepin my mouth shut next time.

Snow Fun!

Sorry I really haven't been on the ball with the whole blogging thing for a while. I wish I had some incredible excuse to give you, but I've got nothing! I do however have some cute pictures of Joe and Den'ja shoveling the snow.
In case you didn't notice....let me point out the view behind them in the pictures. This is seriously what we see when we walk out our front door. Isn't it beautiful? We are incredibly lucky.

So where have I been?

I was absolutely blessed to be born into a family that LOVES to vacation! It is definitely our favorite thing to do and tropical locales are our favorite! The week before Christmas Den'ja and I left with my family for a Carribean cruise. Joe couldn't miss that many days of school, but assured us that we could go ahead and have a good time. Thanks honey! Some people might think I am crazy to take Den'ja "cruising' but rest assured he is our little traveler and has been more places in his 19 months then many people my age have been. He is one lucky kid. This was actually his 3rd cruise! Grandma and Grandpa completely spoiled him and we all had a blast! Here are some pictures from our adventure.

Most of the gang
