I shall title this post St. Geezy (cause that's what the cool kids are calling St. George now).
We went to St. Geezy for spring break a few weeks ago. The entire trip was wonderful. We dined, played, swam, and relaxed with some of our most beloved people in the world.
Also, we bought and ate an ostrich egg (pictures below). The verdict of our adventurous mastications? Ostrich eggs, scrambled up and served with rashers of bacon and buttered toast, can be disguised as ordinary chicken eggs to skeptical palates. In other words, ostrich eggs are good.
Below are some pictures from our springy vacay:
|Our first night we overnighted in Provo. The kids favorite part of road trips? Swimming in the hotel pool.|
|Jim and kids in pool|
|We stopped at a rest stop to relieve tiny bladders. There was an old tree that was perfect for climbing. So. . . climb it we did.|
|Jim and Tralee in climbing tree|
|This girl's endless sense of adventure never ceases to amaze me.|
|Hunter spotted this map, and ran right over to gaze upon with his fellow travelers.|
|Our first day in St. George was a brilliant 81 degrees. Perfection! We basked in the sun, and swam in the pool.|
|What's a trip to St. Geezy without rides at the Sand Dunes?|
|Hunter loved the ride until we splashed through a puddle and mud streaked his face. He got over it.|
|Doesn't he look all boy here? I kinda like him.|
|Hunter was happy on top of the goats' hut. I can't remember the goats' real names, but Hunter renamed them Sheena and Frenemy.|
|Hunter and his lady friends on top of the goats' house.|
|My Utah bestie, striking a pose upon a horse. I was super impressed with her prowess, so I had to take a picture.|
|Our little family with Cody.|
|Jim taking a bunch of kids for a ride on the Rhino|
|Can you tell which one is Lexi and which one is Tralee? They're best cousins.|
|Another shot of our cowboy|
Sadly, our time in St. Geezy had to come to an end. Luckily, Tralee lost a tooth at a gas station on the way home and cheered us all up. Also luckily, the tooth fairy managed to find Tralee's tooth at the hotel we stayed at in Salt Lake City.
Also, can I say how perfect our overnight in SLC was? When morning came, the kids played peacefully together, and Jim and I slept in! It was wonderful! We eventually packed up, and found our way home.
The whole trip was grand. I hope to go back very very soon!
