Dave's Birthday

This year for Dave's birthday, he wanted to get away and go to St. George. We left Thursday, the day before his birthday, and discovered something new. The best time to travel with our girls is at night. It's not our favorite time, but at least we know that they will do well. We've tried going at nap time in the past, but it doesn't really work. This was really nice though. We didn't get there until almost midnight, but it gave us a whole day for Friday.

Friday, I had a bunch of presents that I gave him at different intervals throughout the day. He picked what we did since it was his birthday. We went to the Mall!!!! I wouldn't believe it myself but I was there! He wanted to go trade his hat that his parents gave him because it was too small and get some new pants. Then we went out to Cafe Rio for lunch.

Seth and Karen had spent the previous week in Disneyland and were driving through St. George, so we invited them to stay. We went out for dinner at Olive Garden and came home to put the kid down and play games.

The rest of the trip was full of boring and lazy happenings. We read books, played video games and took the kids to the sand dunes. We saw Dave's grandparents who always have us over for a delicious meal, and went shopping. Dave took Aubree out on the Golf course to hit balls and we watched movies. It was a nice getaway but always too short. We came home Monday and life finally is some what back to normal.

  1. It sounds like a nice relaxing weekend, though, even if it was too short. I'm glad you were able to get away. :)
