We had a great trip to Utah planned for June.  It came at the end of 3rd year and right before Step 2.  Josh had not been home since December and I since April (too long) so we were in need of a little St. George.  My mom planned about 6 months ago to have our entire family together and to spend some quality time at the cabin.  It was a blast enjoying the beauty of St. George and just being together.  Thanks mom for planning such a great vacation
Evie loved to go swimming.  It was so nice to relax under the shade in my parents pool.  I also will need to invest in one of these floats one day, Evie loved it.  A true pool girl.

Evie's first trip on the St. George Carousel.  People who dont think this was a good purchase, look at the face of my daughter and my niece and you will change your mind.

Waiting in line.

I think she is almost there.  She probably will be able to ride soon at the rate she is growing.

Say Cheese!

The girls riding together.  Madelynn really wanted to go with Evelyn on this ride.  She picked out the bench so we could all sit together. 

Check out those thighs.  I couldn't ask for a cuter baby.  

Grandma and her girl

At the cabin, Madelynn holding her all by herself

They are 2 peas in a pod.  Madelynn loved being with Evie and wanted to spend every waking moment with her.

We went on a beautiful hike in Brianhead.  

It was fun to see the small waterfalls coming off the side of the hill.  This is Madelynn and Pop pop after he let water drip on her head from the waterfall.

The whole gang taking a breather on our very strenuous hike.

My little hiker.

Mom and cute

Skyler scared us by hiking out onto the waterfall.

She had to stick her head out to see everything that was going on.  She never stopped chewing on her sling and it was soaked when we got back to the car.

We made cupcakes.

Ahhh say cheese ceri

Like mother like daughter

I love this family!

Proof that we were all in the same place at the same time. 

Poor girl fell asleep like this.  Mother of the year award.

Happy 4th of July.  We went to the St. George 4th of July parade.  They really put on a great parade.  We had primo seating next to the Tabernacle and Miss M came away with the lottery.  This girl won everything from a frisbee to a t-shirt and a ton of candy.

Waiting for the parade to start.

"Check it out mom"

So excited to celebrate our country.

Enjoying the parade together.

After the parade we went to the park to enjoy some games.  Madelynn wanted to ride this all by herself.  We didnt stay very long at the park because it was so unbelievably hot!

Later that night we did some fireworks.  Evelyn loved the sparklers, but hated (really hated) the loud ones!

We did this most days.  My parents have an amazing front yard where we lounged under the trees everyday.
