{Pinevalley 2014- Part 3 Other Adventures}

St. George with the Pettingills

We lucked out and overlapped with my SIL and kids staying in St. George.  So we ventured down for a day to play with them.  It just so happened that my other SIL was travelling through St. George to San Diego at the same time. We had a blast together!

 I so wish we lived closer together! We all get along so well!

On the way back to PV, I traveled through Snow's amazing!  At the time I took this photo it was 109 degrees! It was so hot the kids could only stand to be outside for this quick photo before jumping back in the car.

Day trip to Zions National Park

We haven't been to Zions since the kids were really little. Every year we say we will go since it's just an hour and half drive from Pinevalley.  This year we finally made it work. We found ourselves in PV with just my mom (the rest of the crew was gone already), so we took a day trip into the park.  It was a lovely day and the sites just take your breath away!

We took the shuttle up a few stops and did a few short hikes. It was hot, hot!  Ok, well only 90 degrees...which was a "cool" day for that time of year.  

Can you spot Rylan in the picture below? Typical!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
