St. George Here We Come!!!

We left at about 10:30am for St. George. It was cold and rainy and like 30 degrees when we left. It only took us 3 hours to get there, I read most the way and the kids watched movies and listened to ipod's. We took Alexa's friend, Paige with us.
Once we arrived we pulled into In-N-Out for was delicious as usual. It was in the 50's and sunny but a little windy.
We went to check into the hotel. It was really nice, we had a fridge and microwave in our room.
We watched TV for a bit and got everything out of the car. The kids were anxious to go swimming so they got ready and went out for a swim. The pool was heated and the hot tub was HOT!! The wind really started to pick up though and I thought we might blow away!!!

The kids were having such a great time I don't think the wind really even bothered them.

I love these pictures...they were trying to get the High School Musical "jump" just right and I think they got it!!
Rich checked his email while we were outside braving the wind. It was nice they had 2computers in the business center for their guests to use. We were also able to hook up our portable DVD player to the TV so we could watch movies.
Alexa and Paige ditched us and went to hang out with her sister and friends. They went to dinner and then they slept at their condo.
Me, Rich and the boys hit the hot tub later that night (after a trip to Walmart, which was right next door) for an hour or so and then headed back to the room to watch a movie. The boys fell asleep quick and Rich and I watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. I had just read the book and the movie was a really good adaptation...very, very sad though.
It was a great start to our little vacation.

I love the pictures! I love Alex in the last one. I'm not sure about the second one you took of yourself in the wind!
