On Thusday morning we loaded up and left for ST. George, UT!!

So we drove Thursday morning and went straight to Sand Hollow Res. to meet up with the rest of the Netty family. It was a cold windy day but we tried to have a beach day anyway. Our kids played great. I took off Rose’s pants and gave her a shovel and she was entertained the entire time. That girl LOVES sand right now, and water isn’t bad either. We had an early dinner and enjoyed being with Pete, Matt, Michelle and their families. The next day was still chilly and windy but we put on our shorts and willed it to be a park day. We ended up spending a full afternoon at a local park. The big kids explored the hill, played soccer and baseball, and flew Ben’s BIG kite. Little kids played on the playground, got cold, ate snacks, warmed up in the van, more snacks, try to explore and follow big kids. It was fun.

Diego vs. Uncle Matt (kids challenged the adults)
I think Jamie might have fouled Cody and Lily here.
Lalo vs. Uncle Pete (Ben was on the far end of the field so I didn't get any good shots)
Michelle, Matt and Pete - enjoying the view or looking for kids?
It was a good Kite Flying day.
Saturday we woke up to rain 🙁 So we tried to entertain ourselves for a few hours and then finally decided to make it a swimming day even with the rain. I took the 3 big kids swimming with all of their cousins. The pool was surprisingly warm and was really fun.
when bored - - - find a computer chair to spin in! and a Cali to push you.

Sunday morning was nice and Sunny again but we had to pack up and head home. We love our yearly trip to St. George. This year we stayed with Michelle and Udine in Grandma’s condo. We went to church, packed up and headed home. I think I will mention that Packer requested a potty stop cause he needed to pee. Ben asked if he could hold it and he said no but HE always holds it. Ben told him to go ahead and pee in his pants cause we weren’t near a bathroom. Well, you can probably guess where this is going… Packer took him seriously and peed his pants and kept on playing the PSP! Hopefully we all learned a lesson from that story :)Â We couldn’t go straight home when we knew there would be dinner and games waiting for us at Ryan’s place so we stopped there and ate and played and then came home and ended our spring break. THE END
