out and about: fall break St. George getaway

It's COLD today. I really don't like being cold. I'm wishing we were back here:

We spent our fall break last week in sunny St. George. It was nice and warm--perfect. We pretty much just unplugged from everything--phones, computers and even the camera. I only took 12 shots the entire four days we were there. Okay, truth be told, I kept forgetting the camera at the condo. And we did watch a movie every night. We loved How to Train Your Dragon. So cute! We also watched a few episodes of Disney's Phineas and Ferb. I can't believe we sit and watch it, but we're hooked. The writers are genius and it's very funny if you really listen to all the dialogue.

Ella would have stayed in her swimsuit and gone swimming 24/7 if we let her. She kept saying, "I'm a fish...get me back in that water!"

It was a much needed break. We explored the desert trying to find some crystal rocks our friends showed us, but bombed out. We were pretty determined and figured we spent about five hours looking. We went shopping. We all know mostly I did, but Ella was able the convince Lynn she had to have a pair of Twinkle Toes Sketchers at the Outlet Mall. She hasn't taken them off since. I love the shop Urban Renewal on St. George Blvd. (right down from Ancestor Square) and they have a great TJ Maxx by the Outlet Mall. We ate out a lot. There's a 5 Guys burgers and fries in SG now and a Brick Oven. We also had ice cream day and cupcake day. If you haven't tried the cupcakes at 25 Main, you're missing out. It's a darling restaurant too. We didn't do anything super exciting, but it was very fun and relaxing.

After each of our vacations, I write up a Travel/Vacation Log entry and keep it in a book with information and memorabilia. It's our "travel scrapbook" and it's super simple. I pretty much keep the same format and just fill in the blanks each time. If you read it, please don't hold the potty thing  against Lynn. It's probably one of those times you had to be there, but Ella can be so dramatic and the way she said it was hilarious. She is such a girl!

Here's to hoping for at least a few more warmer weeks until the cold weather stays.


  1. that is SO what I need! I am happy someone got to do it!

  2. I need it too. And snow please stay away.

  3. Kim... I tried to look at your travel log... but when I clicked on the link it said I didn't have access to view it? I'd love to see it if possible?


  4. Said I didn't have access either. What's up with that?
