Scott and his 3 oldest kids flew into Utah four our Lake Powell family reunion...only we didn't end of going to Powell because of schedules and crazy heat. So we went to St. George instead! Scott had never been there! We had a lot of fun. The kids were in HEAVEN to be with eachother and we made sure there were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. We wend to Sand Hollow Reservoir twice and it was PERFECT! The kids all skied behind the jet skis (ya, my dad bought a couple jet skis). We had a great new tube that we all loved and everything else was great too :)
My favorite part was Nic's treasure hunt. Well, it was actually an Indian treasure hunt :) Camryn and Dani found a bottle with a map in it back behind a tree in the backyard. It was clearly over 100 years old!! They followed clues up into the mountain where they'd unburry little wooden boxes with the next map/clue. They finally found the treasure in a little cave and it was so exciting! There were beads, arrow heads, feathers, stained glass, wooden toys and more. I have the cutest husband in the world to set up this whole event so perfectly.
Of course there was swimming, games, birthdays celebrated and more. But the final highlight was probably our hike up to the narrows, which is actually a one mile hike through Zions that leads to the foot of the BIG narrows hike. There were lots of animals along the way and pools of water to play in at the end of the hike. We all just swam around in our clothes. It felt great! These types of things are my favorite things to do with my kids. They get so excited and always seem to appreciate it.
A big thanks to my parents as usual for inviting us to their St. George home and providing lots of toys and entertainment!
