Its been a LONG summer- so for part of our Olsen-Fowlks-Barnson (and who ever else we can talk into joining us) tradition, we headed to St.George for the Labor day weekend.We left later Friday night, and about 3 minutes into the drive Jayce began "are we there yet"--- It seemed like we would never get there!
The kids all loved the pool. Ross and Todd had a good time too! Diving became the sport of the weekend- and let me tell ya- the girls could do some pretty great belly flops! I believe it was Todd that challenged Ross to dive into the pool with his life saving devices in place. For Ross and Todd this would be an intertube around the belly and several noodles to balance the head and feet. Ross took the challenge- and the intertube exploded- not pretty! Plus it was not even his intertube- so now he owes somebody a tube!!
Any free time, away from the pool, was spent playing cards, eating, playing cards, eating, and a little shopping at the outlets! The shopping was worth it, because Shontell bought a swimsuit AND we got her into the pool- that was a first!! She even has a bit of a sunburn on her "Celestial" Skin!
As the weekend wound down and we prepared to head home I realized that I wish we could have more time like this together with the people that we love! Just time to chat and relax and laugh! I cherish these moments and look forward to next year!!
