St. George Weekend

I had the chance to go to St. George with my sisters and parents this past weekend. Bryan's parents let us stay at their vacation home. Bryan offered to use his frequent flier miles to fly Mary in from Texas. All the husbands took days off work to take care of the kids. And we had a WONDERFUL vacation together....laughing, playing games, watching movies, shopping, swimming, eating all the meals that we love but our husbands hate....it was great fun! Here's some pictures of our adventure.


What would a girls weekend be without some serious shopping at the outlet stores? Trying on clothes together sounded a lot like this: "That looks so good on you!" "Does this make me look fat?" "This doesn't look good on me but I bet it would be great on you!" "Hey, can you grab me a different size?" "That is SO cute!" And the comment probably heard most often? "Jeremy/Bryan/Spencer/Ryan/Scott is going to kill me when he sees how much I bought!" I enjoy shopping...probably more than I should...but shopping with my sisters? SO much fun.


Most mornings looked like this...curled up on couches in sweats and t-shirts, talking and drinking slimfast shakes.


My sweet Daddy came along to be with all five of his daughters one last time before Rachel moves to Georgia. When hearing that my Dad was coming along, my brother-in-law commented that the poor guy was going to be bored out of his mind with all of our gabbing. Bryan laughed. "Where do you think Sarah gets it?" he commented. "Her Dad will be right in the thick of it!" And we loved that he was!


We decided to take advantage of us being all together to run over and get our pictures taken. This is us trying to decide on which pose turned out best.


What's a St. George trip without some swimming? We all came back a little pinker than we had been before.


And reading. Ah, reading. It's not a Dalton trip without books, books and more books!
