Spring Break

We went to St. George for spring break again this year! Bret's family started this tradition quite a few years ago with another family and since then it has grown to 7 or 8 families. We have so much fun 4-wheeling, shopping, going out to dinner, laying by the pool, playing games and laughing until our stomachs hurt.
*sorry for the picture over load*
We had way to much fun playing with my camera! We decided to eat somewhere else while everyone else ate at Bajio and we got done eating before everyone even had there food so we had a little time on our hands. The things we do for entertainment. We couldn't take a good picture to save our lives, we were laughing way to hard! This is as good as is gets.
She was still having fun with the camera on her own- Love ya Shay!
Me and Shea waiting for everyone to get ready for our ride on the Barracks!
This is such a fun trail-we go on it every year!
Me and Bret!
I am no photographer and this picture doesn't do it justice at all but this ride is so beautiful!
We had a few stops along the way so why not bring out the camera?
We love pictures!There are several river crossings along the way-we made it through the first one but were a little concerned about the second one. We made the boys go through first-after a bunch of them were soaked some of us girls decided to make a bridge and cross it that way. Needless to say we stayed nice and dry.
Shaylee and Ryley( he must think he's a cowboy or something) riding through one of the crossings.
Some of them got a little scary but we all made it through safe and sound!
I tried to get a picture so you could see how many bikes and 4-wheelers we had but this is as good as I could get. I think there were 24 bikes and 35 people all together. We were so lucky we all stayed safe!
Me, my mom and my mother-in-law
I have the best moms-love you both!
I love my daddy! We were all a little shocked that my parents came with us this year. (they don't vacation much) We all had so much fun with them-and they loved it. I think they'll come again next year!
We drive into a little town and eat at this restaurant-I think the people that work there get a bit overwhelmed when they see all of us coming.
These two boys had the best helmets I have ever seen. I couldn't leave them out.
Gotta love the mohawks!
We had so much fun in St. George! We couldn't have asked for better weather or better company! Everyone we go with is so much fun-there is never a dull moment when you get close to 40 people together! Thanks everyone for the fun and laughs! We can't wait for next year!

I know I'm a little late with this post. (I usually am with most of them :) We had such a fun Easter weekend. It was so nice having it over Conference Weekend. We got to spend a lot of time with our families which we love! This year Easter was really fun for me at our house. Last year the Easter Bunny kind of forgot to come to house-well he really just forgot me. Its a long funny story and Bret(the Easter Bunny) hasn't stop hearing about it since. He made sure not to forget Easter this year. I love Holidays-its fun shopping and getting little surprises. This year the Easter Bunny redeemed himself and remembered both of us! Bret picked out this cute pink basket and filled it with some of my favorite treats and a PEDICURE-one of my favorite things. He's so good to me! He didn't want a basket so his just got put on the table. He got a new pair of shorts and a few of his favorite treats. The Easter Bunny took good care of us this year!
After the morning session of Conference we headed to my parents house for a yummy lunch and an Easter Egg hunt for the grandkids. It was a little cold so we had to hurry. It was so fun watching them-and how excited they get when their baskets are overflowing with eggs.
As you can see it is hard to get a good picture when they have treats sitting next to them.
Hadlee, Parker and Peyton
Sweet baby Taylor!
After the second session of Conference we headed over to the Pierce's to have another yummy dinner and Easter egg hunt. We were so spoiled with two delicious meals. I think our moms are two of the best cooks-needless to say we were really full by the end of the day!
CHARLIE-he couldn't be any cuter!
Everytime I tried to get a picure of him he would walk closer to me.
Its close but still so cute-with his mouth full of candy!Charlie, Kaylie and Ellie
We had so much fun playing Easter Bunny for the kids. We have some of the cutest nieces and nephews! We had such a fun Easter weekend and are so grateful to have both of our families so close.
