Flight to St. George

We all flew down to St. George for the day and had Sunday dinner with my Grandparents. It only takes 2 hours so it was like going to Grandma's on a Sunday afternoon. We had dinner, played outside at Grandpas pond and at the Virgin River, and visited for a while. The weather was perfect. Then we flew home that afternoon. It was really cool cause we got back to the Salt Lake Valley just after dark so we could see the entire valley lit up. Dylan said it looked like we were in a Christmas tree, lol. Then when we got back we went straight from the airport out to dinner with my family for Justin's 21st birthday.
Blair is building up hours for his Commercial license so we will have lots of fun opportunities to fly places. Next week I think Blair and his Dad are flying to Lake Powell for the day.
My boys love to go flying with Blair. At least one of them goes every time. Me on the other hand, I get a little nervous when we go. Luckily this was a great day to go. There wasn't a breeze and it was a smooth ride. I still try to keep my mind busy by watching movies or taking these pictures. These pictures don't do justice to how amazing it looks from up there. I will have a lot more pictures of us flying in the future. My camera wasn't working on this trip, so I used my cell phone that’s why the pictures aren't very good. Anyway, It was really fun and it didn't even feel like it was a short trip. Probably cause we were actually down there for most of the day. Definitely worth the trip!
Now we'll see if my Mom is brave enough to go down with Blair next time to visit Grandma Sandy, lol ;)

This is Salt Lake!

Weekend get away!

We spent the weekend up at Powder Mountain in a condo. We had such a good time. We mainly just relaxed. We did a lot of swimming and we played in the snow. Blair made us go "exploring" and any who knows Blair knows what that means, he just about killed us. I was so tired after. We also played some board games together and we had a killer game of Mario Party 3. Blair won and of course he rubbed our faces in it. He is not a graceful winner. lol :) It was so much fun cause it snow quite a bit while we were up there and it felt like Christmas.

Dylan and Carson both like to snowboard.

Even Shawn had a good time in the snow, he mainly wanted to eat it.

The condo we stay in had two bedrooms downstairs and a loft upstairs. This is a view from upstairs.

This is the room Dylan and Carson stayed in.

All about the boys!

Shawn is 2 1/2 years old. He has such a cute personality. Shawn has to do whatever his brothers are doing; whither it is playing video games, playing with their friends outside, doing homework with them. Shawn makes the family laugh all the time.

Carson turned 6 in September. He started kindergarten this year. He loves to take the bus to and from school. Carson is now starting to read a few words. He will come home from school and read to the family. Carson cares so much about other people. If he gets a treat from school he will ask for more to give to his brothers.
Dylan will be 8 in December. He is now in the second grade. He is doing really well in school. It is amazing to watch him grow up so fast. (He is going to be just like his dad.) Dylan likes to hang out with his friends and family. He also enjoys playing video games, and writing letters to his uncle Brett who’s in boot camp.

Halloween was so much fun! Blair's family all came over to go trick or treating (except Brett of course, he's at boot camp). I made vegetable cheese soup, hmmm delicious. The boys and their cousins were so cute in their costumes. Dylan was a zombie, Carson wanted to be a pirate, and Shawn was a little spider. It was nice to have a night that wasn't freezing, although they did get sprinkled on a bit.
