We decided to have a fun weekend in St. George with the family before we leave to South America. Eva was able to rent a house with a swimming pool and 5 bedrooms in the Santa Clara area.
We had a great time. The grandkids all loved the pool and hot tub. We pretty much spent the entire weekend in the pool. Rosie was swimming like a fish. She would jump off the highest deck into the deep part of the pool. She was also able to dive and get the dive toys off the bottom. Pretty good for a 4 year old. Chandler also really liked the pool and as he became more comfortable he was able to spend time in the deep end of the pool. Rosie and Chandler probably spent 6-8 hours a day in the pool.
Everett was a little more cautious when getting into the pool, but he was able to play in the shallow end and in the hot tub. Two-month old Arlo also loved the pool. We would let the hot tub cool a little and he loved being held in the water. He was able to float on his back, with me only holding his head out of the water. I don’t think he even cried once while in the pool.
On Sunday we went to Pioneer Park in St. George and took family pictures against the red rocks. They turned out pretty good, even though we just used an iPhone and a tripod.
It was a great weekend and we were glad to have the entire family together. It has been a while since we were all together for more than just a couple of hours. We love all of them very much.
