Memorial Day Weekend

I look holiday weekends! It is so nice to have Skyler home and off work so we can go have fun family time! Friday night Skyler, Nate and I went to Pirate Island Pizza to eat a yummy dinner and afterwards we played in the arcade for a little bit. Then we decided to go on an adventure! Skyler knew that there was a waterfall somewhere in the Toquerville Mountains so we set off to find it. He had looked at a map and there were a ton of trails and we ended up not making the right turn so we ended up at a look off spot. It was so pretty!! The sun had just barely gone down and so it was just getting dark so you could see all the city lights of hurricane and st. george. We could also see the lake at Sand Hollow. We should have taken a picture, but of course we didn't! Since it was already dark we figured we would just go back home and find the waterfall on a different day.

This is similar to what we saw that night:)

Saturday we worked on cleaning up our yard and getting it ready for more landscaping. When I say we I mean skyler working while I bring him water :) That afternoon our friends Bryce and Blaire and their daughter Summer were sealed in the St. George temple. I am so grateful we were able to be there with them! That was such a cool experience! I have never been to a sealing where a child was being sealed to their parents and it was the neatest thing! Needless to say I was thankful I wore waterproof mascara and eyeliner! Congrats to Bryce and Blaire! We love you guys!

On Memorial day we decided to head back up to Toquerville and find the waterfall! Bryce, Blaire, Summer and their dog Shep joined us for the adventure! We packed up lunches and headed out there at 11am! This time we found the right trail no problem! We spent all afternoon out there eating, talking, laughing, splashing and having such a good time! It was such a beautiful day and we found the perfect shade spot to relax in! We headed back to St. George late afternoon and went swimming at my moms house! It was a really fun day!

Love it! You'll have to show us how to get there when we come down. What a neat little paradise in the middle of the desert!
