A catch up post

I have been wanting to share some of my latest layouts and what we have been up to. If you are here for the grocery post just scroll down.

I mentioned that we spent our spring break in St. George last week. We had such a fun time. I was sad that there wasn't time to stop and visit friends along the way or to shop the new IKEA store. The only stop we made for visiting was at Clayne's brother, Jedd's house. We just had to meet our newest cousin/niece, Ellen. She is such a beautiful baby. They blessed her this last Sunday and we knew we wouldn't make it down again and so we just had to stop. While there we had a little egg hunt with Jenny, their other daughter who is 3. It was fun to see them and their "new" home.

While in St. George we took the kids to church - much to their dismay since we were on "vacation." We thought we were in the right ward because there were lots of kids there, but it turned out that they were all visitors too and the ward we went to was a "retired" ward and they didn't have a primary for the kids so after Sacrament meeting we left and went over to the St. George temple visitors center. They had a wonderful display of statues showing Christ's ministry and then at the end we were able to view the Christ statue which is a smaller replica of the one in Salt Lake. Apparently they have one in our visitor center in Idaho Falls too, but we haven't been over there to see it yet. I loved this picture I got of Cheyenne looking at Christ. I will take the lazy route and ask that you click on my gallery link to the right to see more of my layouts and to view the listing of credits for these scrapbook layout shares. Thanks for looking.

The kids lived at the pool while we were at the condo and why not when the temperature was in mid to high 70's the whole time. It was beautiful. We did manage to drag them away just one day to go to Snow Canyon and hike a bit. The whole time we were there they just kept asking when we were going back to the condo so they could swim lol. We hope that sometime when we are down that way we can go to Zion's or Bryce Canyon but until they can hike for more than 10 minutes without so much complaining we figure why bother lol.

I previously posted about the girls having their birthdays. Cheyenne's was celebrated while in St. George, but we were home for Savannah's. I had fun using a baby picture of Cheyenne to show how she has changed over the years. And the one I made of Savannah for her birthday has become my new favorite and I just had to share it.

Last of all... For those who like to be in the digital scrapbook "know" Kami of Ziggle Designs that I am a member of the creative team for is in a new store - Scrap Orchard. They are having a grand opening this week with lots of fun events. So be sure to stop by and join in on the freebies and sales.

I am glad you had a good trip. Sun and warmth. I bet you loved coming back to IF. Wow I still can't believe you have a teenager. Get it all figured out so you can tell us how to do it.

Love all your pages. You're sooo creative! It's fun to look at them.

I downloaded the recipe cards from the Orchard site, but I'm not savvy enough to know how to "type" on them, do you have to have a special program?
