Trip to St. George Before School

Patrick and I decided we needed a little vacation before school started again, but we don't have much money. So, we decided to go on a little vacation to St. George and stay in my family's condo. We were so lucky that the condo was available the week Patrick had work off! It worked out perfectly.

Patrick likes to call this vacation HM2 (Honeymoon 2) because, essentially, we did the same things we did on our honeymoon. It was loads of fun though! It was nice to just get away together, celebrate our 1 year anniversary, and have a little break before school.

Our adventures included Fiesta Fun, St. George Temple, picnic in a park, Zion National Park, shopping, movies, swimming, shuffle board, games, and dinner with the old folk (for our anniversary we went to dinner at a country was delicious and actually pretty reasonably priced, but we were definitely misfits--the only people under 50!)

Here are some pics of our festivities...

Miniature golfing at Fiesta Fun. We both got a hole-in-one!

Lighten Up!

So, it's been a long while since I've posted. Sorry! I just haven't really known what to say. Summer has been good and summer-y. We are going on vacation next week to St. George (the perfect vacation for poor people like us) and we can't wait! We have been counting down the days. We need a little break from work. I'm sure you'll hear more about it soon.

Patrick is taking the GRE as we speak. He is doing great I'm sure! Go babe go.

Lastly, I have had quite a few comments lately about the seriousness of posts on my blog. I'm not sure why...I don't really feel like I only post serious things, but I guess everyone else does. So, I apologize. I'll try and lighten up a bit!!! :)
