St. George Vacation (pt.2)

Okay, we had to do this in two post in order to: 1. Break it up to prevent boredom, and 2. Keep the blog from self-imploding due to photo overload.

Sunday, we got up and went to church. It happened to be the one across from the temple. It was Fathers' Day so it was cute to see all the little kids get up and sing. After church, we changed, ate lunch and then headed back to the temple. It is so white. We thought it was just because it was against the red rocks but it really was so white!

Then we headed off to the St. George Tabernacle. It is so fun to see all of the historic buildings.It was super windy.

Then it was off to the Brigham Young Winter House. The man giving the tour was hilarious and you could tell that he loved what he was doing.

Then it was off to the Jacob Hamblin home. On the way there Jeff kept trying to figure out if he was related. Turns out that he is Jeff's 4th (or 5th) great-grandfather.
Pictures while walking around....

Monday was our last full day so we went hiking at Snow Canyon park where we saw Petrified Sand Dunes...

Lava tubes...

And tons of chipmunks/squirrels that Jefferson continued pointing out to me. He has great peripheral vision...I guess it's the running back in him.

Later we went to Pizza Hut for dinner. Remember that Blue Bunny Ice Cream parlor that we were all so excited about? Well it closed down but we took a picture of it anyway.
But we got over it and got Blizzards at Dairy Queen. Who can complain when you've got a Blizzard?

Then it was time for...dun dun dun...the Little Mermaid! It was great and there were all of these cute little girls dressed up and so excited. We couldn't take pictures so here's a before shot. The show didn't start until 8:45, probably because they wanted to wait for it to get dark and didn't get over until 11:15ish. It was way past our bedtime so, needless to say, there were many kids being carried out when it was all said and done.
We left Tuesday morning but not without one more of our beloved waffles. I would say excuse the lack of brushed hair, makeup, or real clothes but that's how we showed up to breakfast every morning so I would really be lying to you if I made it seem like Tuesday was a fluke.

You can probably tell based on massive photo overload, but we had a fantastic time and are so glad that we got to have a vacation (finally, for Jeff).
