Weekend in Utah

This last weekend we took off to St George to spend some time with my parents. We were able to help my parents out by cleaning their cars, cleaning out their garage, doing some yard work and taking some stuff to DI (Deseret Industries). It was nice to spend some time with them and also to be able to help them out at this time. My Dad is doing fine, just continuing his radiation and looking into other treatment. He seemed more hopeful this time and his strength is coming back so it was nice to see him improving for now.

We were able to go to the Tuacahn Theatre to see the play "Big River" Friday night. My nephew was able to get us in for free because he plays the bass in the orchestra and it was amazing! It is a play about Huck Finn but the coolest thing was that they covered the stage with water (it is outside) for the parts with them on the raft. Very fun!! On Saturday my brother and his family came up from San Diego to visit so the cousins had a good time together. They all went to a water park and enjoyed themselves while I got to stay home and spend some time with my Dad. Loved every minute! All in all it was a nice quick trip and the drive wasn't too bad. It is always fun visiting family and I am looking forward to Thanksgiving when we will all be together. Cherished memories!

The boys really enjoyed looking around DI, they felt like Napoleon. These are some of their great finds, Zack even found a wig like Pedro's. We did not buy anything but they did have fun looking. I was hoping that I got one of the polygamist that were there in the picture but I didn't:( Only in St George!

Zack sharing his coin collection with PaTa (Grandpa). My Dad has a great coin collection and Zack has really picked up on the hobby of collecting coins, he even has a cool safe to keep it in. He always drags the big safe up there so he can show PaTa his new coins. :)

I'm so glad your dad is doing good. Looks like fun, love that fish that Zach has, I've seen those everywhere in old people's houses :)

Really Rachel would have bought that chair. Scary I know. Sounds like a fun trip. I am so glad you got to go see family, it is all about making memories for your kids and I think they will remember that trip.

The chair could have been yours for only $10! What a bargain!!
