The River

Several days ago, we put on our suits and went to the river for family night. It was sooooo much fun! We spent the whole time wading in a section that was just the perfect depth for the kids, and they had glorious fun with mud and river rocks. I think it was sensory paradise for them! The weather was perfect and the water was warm. I really love doing simple family activities that cost very little (OR NOTHING!) and keep the kids really happy and entertained. This definitely fell under that category! We've been making an effort to do more as a family--more than just sitting around the house, that is. We've gone to the library together, which I do with the kids, but Phill came this time, and it was a lot more fun (probably because I had more time to steal away and look for my own books.....). We also went for a walk in Santa Clara, which is right next to us, and is a town I absolutely love. I sometimes daydream of living there. Today we are going to be sorting through all our stuff to contribute to a yard sale this Saturday....more on that below the pictures.


The 172nd B-Co. Medical Logistics Battalion (Army Reserve) here in St.George can use your support!

The 172nd Bravo Company Family Readiness Group provides help for the families of the soldiers, as well as the soldiers themselves. Any funds donated to the FRG go towards supporting them, whether it is to help out struggling families, provide a gift for a new mother, or send packages to soldiers who are deployed.

Hee hee...and there was my NAME!

Yes, I'd love to donate a session. No problem. The only stipulation is they have to come up to Cedar to get it, or it has to be on Saturday afternoon in St. George somewhere. :)

I'm in love with the black and white picture of Reed writing his name in the sand. Very cool.
