UEA weekend in St. George

For Fall Recess, we headed down to St. George, UT in our attempts to extend summer by a few more days. We stayed in the brand new Town Home Suites Marriott and had a glorious four days down south. We visited the St. George temple grounds and toured the Brigham Young and Jacob Hamlin homes. Dentist husband's great great grandfather was one of the early settlers of St. George and so we found where his home was located as well. We spent a lot time climbing around on the rocks above the city. The kids loved it but truth be known, they were just as happy playing in the empty field next to our hotel.
We spent a lot of time at the driving range. Dentist husband was in heaven because it was located right below the runway of the St. George airport. So, there was a lot of air traffic with "amazing" airplanes overhead.
My kids are little enough, that we could sleep them like this.
Eating left over Mongolian Barbecue in the hotel. My kids LOVE Mongolian Barbecue and we ate there every day. The owner is hilarious and insisted on helping my kids learn how to eat correctly with chopsticks. Every day we looked forward to seeing her.
We also spent every afternoon swimming at the pool. It was a great and fun trip. Now back to cleaning!

I have only been through St. George a couple times, but it is beautiful country. I have always told Lisa that if I absolutely had to live in Utah, the only place I would live is in St. George.

That looks like so much fun! May I say, a great way to spend UEA. I have great memories of doing similar things.

Your kids will thank you for your fun UEA planning.
