St. George getaway

 My dad, Aunt Karin, Leanna, Azzie, Little Charlie and I headed to St. George for a 3 day getaway.
We went to a park downtown and rode the carousel.

he was very scared of the moving horses.
we ended up on the bench.

 making a quick stop to get some yarn.

Next stop...
Zions National Park

No, I wasn't dressed for Zions.  I had my hair down, makeup on, long pants, a black shirt and flats.  I got a few stares as everyone else was dressed to hike and should I mention...sweat. 
My dad told us that we were going to ride the tram all the way around the park and that is what we did.  
We were in the park a total of 3 hours.  
We didn't get off to "hike" or even see the scenery!  
If you have kids, it was a great little adventure from our window seats!!
In all honesty, I would love to go on a few hikes in Zions and feel bad that we took the park for granted with a tram ride.  Maybe next time without kids.

evening with Grandma and friends

 My sisters and I headed over to my Grandma Donna's apartment to visit with her.
Not much has changed since the last time I saw her, or her place.
She still has the walls from floor to ceiling covered with photos of her grandkids and great-grandbabies.
I love her so much and was so glad to visit with her!

Later that night, we had Korine and Vaughn, and Jacque and Betsy come over for dinner and dessert. 
 It was our last night together so we made sure to get pictures of the moms and kids!

I love being surrounded by my family and my friends.  
My visit to California reminded me of all the wonderful people in my life and I am so grateful for them.
Jacque and Korine are friends I will have forever and I love them so much.
I'm glad we are moms together and that our hubbies are good friends.  What more could you ask for?
Well, it would be nice if we all lived closer, but we can dream!

I recently got back from California with my little Charlie.  We went to Disneyland and met up with my family, cousins and best friend.  It was so great to see everyone again and to enjoy the happiest place on earth for a few hours together!  With such a big group, we didn't go on many rides but us adults had fun chatting and laughing together.  Charlie loved the Dumbo ride, it's a small world, dancing at the Buzz stage, Finding Nemo submarine, carousel and the jungle cruise.  Every time we saw the castle he would yell, "Look, Mommy, Look... the castle!!"  I only wish my hubby could have been there to see our little guy have so much fun at Disneyland.  There will be more trip to D-land, so no worries!
I'm excited to show more pics this coming week of the rest of our visit to Cali!!
