This has been long overdo, the post and the vacation. We left for St. George on Friday (March 13) night and got there late. Saturday was jam packed with fun. We first met Grandma and Grandpa Niebuhr for some miniature golf and so other fun. The girls were not really interested in golfing, oh well. I didn't know that Paul was such a good golfer !! He was the winner !! Katelyn and Maddie got to ride the cars around the track and they loved that. We next went to get some lunch and then off to Snow Canyon for some hiking on the big rocks. The sand dunes were next and lots and lots of sand. Patrick buried the girls up to their waists and they thought that was so funny. The sand got everywhere and is still in the car !! It was time for dinner and being that it was PIE day Patrick insisted on having pizza to honor pie day. ( In case you are not one of those geniuses, or just a geek, pie is 3.14 s
since it was march 14 it was pie day). Oh, I forgot about going swimming. The hotel had a indoor pool and we had a great time in the pool. We had to drag the girls out making a scene, it was not pretty.
Sunday was pretty low key. We went to the park for a picnic lunch and some play on the swings, slides ect. Paul and Tona had 11 o'clock church so we met them over at their apartment for root beer floats. Thanks again Paul and Tona they were great. It was great to see them and visit with them. The girls loved it seeing papa and grandma ! It was time to head home and so off we went. It was very peaceful. Maddie slept for three hours and Katelyn slept for two hours. It was a great trip and well needed.
