spring break in st. george - day 1

we decided to escape from reality for a few days and head to st george.  it was all pretty last minute, but we had a great time.  we stayed at the st. george inn and suites.  they have a complimentary hot breakfast that was pretty good: waffles, biscuits and gravy, omelets and ham, cereal, bagels, juice, oatmeal, yogurt, etc...

each morning we started out in the lobby of the hotel, eating a good breakfast.




the first morning, we decided to take the kids to see the st george temple and visitor center.  we really enjoyed the family presentation in the visitor's center.

clara was not cooperating with pictures.

after spending some time at the visitor's center and walking around the outside of the temple, we decided to hit the outlets and do a little shopping.  each of the kids decided to buy a pair of sunglasses with their money.


an older gentlemen called clara, "hollywood" while she was wearing her glasses.


clara started getting a little bored while the boys were shopping for shoes.  i took a picture with her to entertain her for a minute and then handed her my phone to play games.


when we got home, i noticed a nice collection of pictures she had taken.


after our shopping, we headed back to the hotel so that the kids could swim in the pool.  that was all they really wanted to do anyway.

later that night, we met up with my little brother who is currently working just outside st george.  we went to dinner and enjoyed spending some time with him.
