Spring Break for Mommy

Charity and I got to sneak away for a fun weekend together in sunny St. George. We are both in love with the sunny city and are always plotting how we are going to move there together some day. With or without Mike and Troy. Just kidding. Although we actually did propose the idea once. It wasn't received very well.

Check list for St. George:
1.Sunshine-CHECK
2. Shopping-

CHECK and CHECK and CHECK....
3. Yummy food-CHECK
4. Get mistaken as part of a youth group while doing baptisms at the Temple-

CHECK
5. Meet up with old friends-CHECK
6. Early morning walk-CHECK
7. Gymnastics on the front lawn-

CHECK
8. Pose for goofy pictures-

CHECK
(We are mimicking the poses her daughter Oakley always makes in pictures.)
9. Stay up late talking-CHECK
10.Skinny dipping-Not this trip. :)

Funny story:When I lived in St. George I had a friend, Bart, who lived in the same apartment complex. Occasionally he would have BBQ's at his mom's vacation home. Years later when I became friends with Charity we put it together that Bart was her Uncle. (I know it is confusing. He is much younger than his siblings and she is the oldest in her family so they are a year apart.) Anyway, the place I stayed this weekend was the SAME place I used to hang out over 10 years ago!!! I am going to have to find some of the old pics. It was funny how familiar the place was and how much I remembered it. I still keep in touch with Bart but I never thought his niece would end up being one of my best friends! Small world. Come to think of it, I think I probably did gymnastics on the lawn back then too. My how I have matured. :)
