Zions Nat'l Park 2010

We took a family trip to St. George over Mother's Day weekend with our good friends the Baldwins. We went to Zions, played in St. George and had a blast the entire time.
Thanks Baldwins!Elise LOVED riding the bus in Zions and begged to "ride bus" the entire time!
We hiked to Emerald Pools, which is a gorgeous hike. I hadn't been there since I broke my foot hiking the same trail in 2007 which coincidentally we were with the Baldwins then also.
No injuries this time!

Jim and Todd decided to hike Angels Landing while Frances and I took the kids to the cute little town of Springdale. We shopped and walked around for a couple of hours until we heard from the boys. I'm pretty sure they set a record of hiking Angels Landing...62 min to the top, 30 min on the summit and 35min down. That's fast I tell ya!

I am guessing the people around them didn't think this was too funny.

Jim and Todd also hiked Signal Peak while we were in St. George.
Jim doing what he does best...thinking.Elise and Cambree were so cute the entire time.
They were best little friends and play together so well.
Cambree celebrated her birthday while we were there. For her birthday she got cute little princess dresses, which kept she and Elise entertained the entire time!

How fun! The views from their hikes look absolutely amazing! I've never been there, we'll have to try it out sometime.

And seriously - has Elise really grown so much?!! She is such an adorable little girl!
