St. George was so fun and a much needed vacation! We left last Thursday and came back Sunday. Our wonderful friends Ruth and Cale and their son Ocean live down there so we spent a couple of days with them as well.
We enjoyed some fun at Pirate Island in Orem on our way down and in St. George on our way back!
Friday Archie humored me and let me head out used book shopping! They had a couple of quaint used book stores in the area. I got the Kite Runner, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Dracula, The Hunger Games, and Catcher in the Rye, along with a few others! It was a very exciting find!
We also hit the Dinosaur Track museum!
Then we headed over to Ruth and Cale's and went to dinner at Samurai where they cooked our food at our table! It was so fun! They even made an onion volcano of smoke! Boog got a bit scared, but was OK in the end. Then we went back to their place for some games and dessert.
Saturday we went swimming in the morning and we were the only ones there! Boog was a bit scared at first since the pool was so big, but he ended up enjoying the hot tub for a few minutes anyway! Then we headed up to the Silver Reef ghost town. Lots of fascinating facts and ruins.
Later that night we met at Ruth and Cale's for some curry and then headed out to the play Aida at the Tuacahn outdoor amphitheater. We almost got rained out with two twenty minute stalls, but other than some lightning, high winds, and rain the show went on! Kudos to the actors for sticking it out. Aida was a great play, I highly recommend it.
Sunday we walked around the St. George Temple's grounds and then hit Cove Fort on the way home.
It's good to be home again since Boog was in our room the whole time and sleep was an issue, but everyone is recovering from our vacation and are glad for the time to spend as a family!
