We almost passed up watching the movie because I didn't think the kids would sit through it, but the movie ended up being their favorite part.
The kids did all really enjoy coloring
The kids were super excited to get to the hotel. It is always a little tricky with who gets to push the buttons in the elevator, but they did a good job taking turns.
As soon as we got settled it was off to the pool. We were lucky to get to enjoy the one nice day out in the sun swimming.
Hannah has turned into our little fish!
The next morning we found a hiking trail. Both Connor and Hannah suffered from skinned knees, but after a little comfort they were ready to get back to hiking
It was fun to see the temple from so far up!
Bonnie had so much fun being a big girl and hiking all over with Mom.
Dad was a Great driver!
The kids did a wonderful job being good. Connor was a child to most frequently ask "are we there yet!" It was nice to have a movie to give some amount of time frame. "When Spider wick is almost over we will be there."
I really enjoyed having time to sit and talk with Paul.
In Las Vegas we went to some really fun parks. This is the Butterfly park. It was a bit windy, and by the end we were running from the ran, but the kids had a great time.
The next day we went to the dinosaur park. Bonnie had so much fun playing with her cousin Maxx.
We took some bread to feed the ducks, but I think we had more birds to feed then ducks.
Hannah, Maddie, Connor, Matthew, Bonnie, and Maxx. It was fun to get the goose and flying bird in the picture too.
Connor loved the big dinosaurs.
They had a great water area too. The water did come on, but the kids were reminded that they had better NOT get wet. I guess on warm days it is great, but the chilly windy days not so much!
Once Paul's brother David got home we headed off for a hike together.
This is the really cool polka doted rock!
Paul and I had lots of fun finally having some time as a family.
It was so nice to spend time with David, Allison, and their kids. It is hard to have family that live far away, but it sure it nice to go visit.
The kids had a fabulous time playing with their cousins, and I am sure I probably could have stayed and talked for a couple more days. It sure is nice to have a chance to take a little trip with the family
