On Top of the World


Happy Mother's Day

St. George, Utah


We spent a fun-filled weekend doing all the things that make a vacation great. Only low of this trip was the sunburns! Every single one of us. ouch. welcome summer!

 There is something better than pina coladas by the pool and it' s sorbet in real fruit shells! We found them at Costco. Turned our vacation into a tropical paradise.
 We spent hours at the pool. The weather was parfait. 80's and hot enough to swim but not so hot you had to swim.  Cousins came to play with us at the pool. Quinn and Brandon played tennis then we all played volleyball.
More outdoor activities at Snow Canyon. Even though I've been here plenty of times the scenery is still striking!

 A short but steep climb up to Pioneer Rock



 A hot walk along the Whiptail trail, where we passed cacti, Mormon tea, flowering yucca and heard desert lizards skittering in the bushes.



 Theme song for this trip: I'm on top of the World--Hey! by Imagine Dragons.


Besides all the outdoor activities, we saw the Amazing Spiderman 2 in the theater and went shopping. The kids tried their hardest to all get along all weekend. It was my best Mother's Day ever.

You're looking as beautiful as ever, Laura. So is your family. And so is Snow Canyon.
