Vacationing in Mesquite

We just had an amazing weekend!!! We left for Mesquite last wednesday and got home Tuesday morning. It was so much fun I don't even know where to begin. I'll start by saying it was warm and sunny!! Which was the best part. The girls were in heaven! Along with me as well. They just wanted to be outside. As soon as we got to Grandma and Grandpa's house they went straight to the backyard. We pretty much just relaxed and hung out. We went swimming which the girls love. The pool's were a little too cold because obviously they are not heated so we pretty much just hung out in the hot tub. I spent most of my time sitting on the side watching. We took the girls to the park a couple of the days and I just read my book while they played. Of course we had our traditional manicure and pedicure party. Bay and Brin even got their nails done this time. Keven (Ryan's dad) is in the High Council so he was speaking on Sunday so we were able to go and hear him. He gave an amazing talk on service. It was a good reminder to all of us. I have always known he was a special person but being there and hearing his testimony and seeing the reactions of those people in that ward made it more real to me. I love him to death!! I am grateful that they have excepted us with open arms into their family. We had a bonfire one night and cooked smores. It was a little difficult finding fire wood but we finally got our hands on some. I think the girls cooked about 20 marshmallows and ate maybe two of those. Between passing them around to everyone else and burning a few. I remember when I was little that the funnest part was just cooking them not eating them. Needless to say when Monday rolled around I really was dragging my feet to come home. It was a wonderful week!! A little peice of heaven on earth for me. I am already planning my next trip back. So thanks Keven, Patti, and Des for a fabulous week full of fun in the sun!!!! Check out our pictures below!!

It is posts like these that make me really miss living in St. George. I would have loved to shoot over to Mesquite to hang out for a day.

Oh the fun times in Mesquite! I remember all the fun times around the pool and just hanging out. What a spring break! I am sure there are three people who appreciate that not all of the pool photos ever taken will be posted.
