Memorial Day in St. George

For Memorial Day we decided to get out of town to St. George. We were there Sunday to Monday.
Our first stop was to the temple.

It was a very cloudy day, so I photoshopped a sky into this one.
Next we went to Pioneer Park, which is by far the kids favorite thing to do in St. George. They could hang out here for hours. It really stresses Jared out....he does not like heights and he is scared the whole time that one of the kids are going to fall to their deaths. Addie and Devin don't help matters much...they run around like crazy and climb those boulders like there is no tomorrow.

We checked into out hotel and the kids went swimming.

After swimming we went to eat...there is not a lot open on Sunday so we ended up eating at Chuck-A-Rama. I was pleasantly surprised...they had steak and it was really good. And they had a chocolate fountain that the kids LOVED.
After dinner we went downtown. It was still light outside and Jared and the kids played baseball. We had the park to ourselves. Such a perfect end to a perfect day.
Monday morning after breakfast, the kids went swimming one more time before checkout. After that we went to ride the carousel and visit Judd's (a little general store that sells old time candy and soda).

 I don't even know what to say about this...all Jared's idea.
Devin eating an atomic fireball and trying not to cry.
In the tabernacle.
We walked to Brigham Young's home. Then we ate lunch at The Pizza Factory.
 I've been hearing for a while how good the cupcakes are at 25 Main so we tried it. My raspberry vanilla cupcake was amazing.
Jared let the kids play at the park while I did a little shopping. Then we left. It was such a fun little getaway. We can't wait to get back!
