i managed to get some blog makeover work done UT i am not sure i am happy with it…what do y’all think?  anyone who knows me knows what an insane coffee junkie i am – right suzanne???  so i saw this digi kit and just had to get it!

we have been at my dad’s in st. george utah for a week and it has been awesome!  but boy did it fly by!  this is our first visit since they moved to utah so we were not sure what to expect and had a hard time really planning things out but i can say there is sure way too much to choose from for only staying a week!  of course my main goal was simply hanging out with my dad and step mom and letting them spend time with pez.  but we also wanted to see the area – we are definitely outdoor enthusiasts and before pezza came along we did ALOT of camping, hiking etc.  when the boys were kids and we lived in MO we did a HUGE amount of hiking, climbing and caving.  in addition my step mom (who is responsible for the papercrafting monster i have become – she bought me my first cricut) claimed me for a day in her craft room for some pointers and playing and stuff.  we also did alot of amigurami crochet and i LOVED that – i will have pics of some finished items this week!  pez loves my dad and step mom (especially my step mom cuz she’s fun and spoils her) and she liked hiking too tho she was a bit slow – after all she is only 3!

our first hike was into the unknown – an area my parents had not explored either.  we got a very late start and thought it was a short hike BUT it was not.  however the drive was amazing and the short hike we did was awesome.  part of it was through a creek and pez thought it was great!

we also took a quick trip over to Zion Canyon – absolutely gorgeous.  we did a small hiking loop that went around some small waterfalls and the pools at the bottom – super good hiking (though popular so a little crowded).  the only downfall was that i got REALLY sick about half way through and couldn’t enjoy the rest.  some sort of stomach thing but it was gone by the next morning.

heading into Zion Canyon to catch the shuttle to go all the way in.

 i do love the west and the mountains – i spent all of my summers in vegas – and it was really nice to be out here again. (also love the way my hair looks in zero humidity i have to say!)

my dad and kevin did alot more adventuring out of doors – i swear they are identical twins separated at birth – it’s almost creepy.  i know they say you marry someone like your father but WOW.

my dad has been a pilot as long as i have been alive and then some so he has always had an airplane or several.

he took kevin and trev up for a ride and in return got some free airplane prep-for-inspection work – you have to practically dismantle the thing so it can be thoroughly inspected every year.

we are headed home today :(

i WILL be meeting up with my buddy terri at stampsalive to grab a few new cricut cartridges that just came out – wish i could have spent a day with her too.  anyway she has LOADS of new stuff arriving and incredible prices so i do encourage you to head to her blog and subscribe so you can get in on the deals when they happen! 

now i am off to pack!

hugs
