Vacation week #1

We are halfway through our trip and having a great time. We started in Phoenix for my niece's baby blessing and had a great time (even though it was over 100 degrees while we were there). On Friday, we saw Wall-E, played in the water fountains, and went to see the Arizona D-Backs play the Padres. The heat wasn't bad as long as we were wet or inside somewhere. I even took a run through the fountains. (I was pretty wet after that.)



Sunday was the blessing for baby Vanessa, with a yummy waffle bar afterwards. We also went to a kiddie amusement park where the boys rode all the rides they could handle. Zach's favorite was the Carousel, Porter's favorite was the spinning cups (similar to the teacups at Disneyland) and Andrew loved the helicopters.

Monday, we took the kids to the splash pad to wear them out before Mom, Jenny, and I went shopping at the mall. It took the kids a while to get out in the water, but after they ate most of Savannah's snacks, they were ready for fun. The best was watching the buckets of water drop down on Porter's head. Word to the wise - don't look up when the water is pouring down... :)

On Tuesday, we traveled with Mom and Uncle Dan to St. George where we met up with Aunt Myrna, Dallas, and Melissa to see Les Miserables at the Tuacan. What a great show! I highly recommend it - even if you have seen it before. I've lost count how many times I've seen it, but I love it more and more every time. Wednesday we traveled to Salt Lake and stayed at Aunt Myrna's house, played and relaxed some more. Friday afternoon we headed up to Kamas for a family reunion, then came back to Rhett's parent's house to stay the night. Rhett flew in to Salt Lake Saturday morning and we have been hanging out with the family.

This coming week is our trip to Flaming Gorge - we can't wait!
