St. Georging in the new year

As usual, being in paradise with family is what makes these trips so much fun.
The kids were quickly entertained with baby races. They would line Briony and Milo up and see who would crawl to them the fastest. They even set up cones at one point. B and M loved all the attention.

I spent most of the trip sitting in this spot staring at all these puzzle pieces. No one wanted to help me either so I did all this by myself.

Pioneer park to go through the crack, Walk up to the arch, into the cave and this time we didn't go to the bridge because of its dangers and because we had so many little people. 
If you have downtime, taking naps is a must especially in the sweet spot (best part of the couch).
 But this particular time, miss Oakley wanted to have a photo shoot instead. 

yikes! We got fat fast!

We always make sure to make time for a run. It's the best in St. George. 
Ugh I am so awkward at posing.
Love these guys. If Luke grown up to be like his dad I'd be okay with that. Two great men right there. 
Oh the food. One of the number one rules about going on vacation is leaving your healthy diet at home. We come here to eat! 
To bring in the new year. We had the boys stay with us and we stayed up very late with them. Oliver loves his cousins so much! 
The boys played Wii miniature golf and I enjoyed listening to them play as I worked some more on that dang puzzle. 
And finally at midnight we ran outside to scream "Happy New Year". We also dared the boys to do snow angels. 
Aiden and Andrew did. 
Finally, we can't bring in the new year without a new years kiss.
The next night we had a viewing of one of our favorite movies, About Time. It was so good to watch especially to start off the new year. We highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.
 Amy and I even got a bit teary eyed. Love my people.

 We finished off the trip by eating {again} at Don Pedro's. It is simply the best and the Carne Asada plate is also highly recommended.
And just like the the trip comes to an end and we look forward to another time when we get to enjoy our time on Olivertree Drive.
 Cheers to a happy 2015!
