Swiss Days and some Romance...

This past weekend, we all went down to St. George for the weekend. We haven't gone in quite a while so it was so nice to get away!
On Friday night, my mom watched Dallin for us while we went on a much needed date. I received a gift certificate for Cafe Rio (which I haven't been to in SOO long- I was really missing out), so Jeff and I ate there. I can't tell you how good it tasted to us! Haha! I'm starting to crave it again just typing about it. After that we went to the temple. It was so nice not to feel rushed. We haven't done a session in quite a while, so it was nice to do that. And I felt the baby while I was inside! I also had a gift certificate from Hailey's "favorite things" package to the Golden Spoon (Sorry Hailey- they didn't have coconut that night- but I'll go back!)- so we also got Frozen Yogurt after. On the way home, the sky started to light up with the Swiss Days fireworks! Perfect Timing! So Jeff pulled over and we watched while we ate our yogurt on the hood of our car. It was a perfect ending to the evening. Just nice and relaxing. I finally remembered to take some pictures while we were watching fireworks, but this is all I have:

Then on Saturday was Swiss Days. I don't know why- But I will always love coming back home to go to this! Something about it just makes me so happy! We met my Great Grandma down at the park (Along with my Mom and Darrell) to eat a yummy breakfast, and then we watched my brother in the parade. He's such a stud! :) Dallin wanted to lay down on the street to watch the parade... he's such a goof. We had a fun time watching everybody. Then Jeff and I walked around the booths and luckily they had a snow cone booth. I don't think we would have survived if they didn't! We walked around for quite a while with everyone happily enjoying their snow cones and then went back to my mom's house. Later that day we went shopping and went back over to my grandma's house for Pizza with my sister and Garrett, and my aunt Kate, uncle Clint, and their kiddos. Again- another great day!

That looks like so much fun! Wow, we REALLY have to try to get down there for a visit. I don't think Collin & all of you would end up playing Pokemon on his Gameboy anymore, lol, but I think he would have fun catching up with Scott and both you & Kellie. We might have to try to make a long weekend trip down before too long. Especially since so much has changed in my life. It would be nice to catch up again.
