Looking at my new niece
James just holding baby Jasmine
Afterwards we had a great dinner and games at Jenn and Bryan's before heading back to St. George for the night.
Papa showing how this toy worked
Outside blowing bubbles
We stayed out for a little bit, but it was really hot
Games with cousins
Jack conquered the balance game
Jenn and Bryan had a nice dinner planned. Unfortunately there was fresh garlic in the rice, and Jonathan ate it. He had some, then looked at me and said "mommy, I have to throw up". So I'm catching it in an itty bitty styrofoam bowl, and just at the moment, Jordan falls down their stairs...
You know, just keeping it real :)
Papa and Jonathan after his little allergy problem
Jack plays so well with his cousins
James loves the baby

Last goodbyes at the car.
Karissa is due in October with their second.
Good luck to them on the birth of their new little one coming up!

Preston Night Rodeo! It is a tradition!
First for Nathan to get there he rode his bike there, and even drafted off of this farm equipment.
The parade on Saturday with great cousins!
Jack with a kitten
Daisy and Jonathan enjoying so yummy's at the parade.
Beautiful daughter and mother, Kristie and Sherri
This little guy has so much energy and spunkiness.
Walking up to the fairgrounds Jonathan got a picture with the horses, and when he turned around one was right there, and he totally screamed!
Sunset at the Fairgrounds
Then we went to the rodeo part, and all of the family got to sit together.
Here is almost everyone that was there!
See, we took up a whole section.
Sunday we went to church at Mike and Misty's ward.
Afterwards we had a big dinner at Doug and Debbie's home. I love our Franklin family, and we love opportunities to go and see them!
On the way home we saw a really big snake, and I thought I had hit it.
After going back...
...it was fine:)
The weekend was wonderful, and it was the best with family!

Spring Break (whoo-hoo!) down to AZ to spend time with the Lovell's.
First stopped at this bridge, and turns out I'm really, really afraid of heights....
This was giving me butterflies in my stomach and a heart attack!
I kept saying "get back, get back!" Nathan said "it's okay:)"
Another stop to explore this old place
How I love, love, love this boy when he holds his puppy like this and wants his binky to go to sleep. I love this age, and he is so perfect, I love it!
Getting feet wet in the hot tub
Hot tub time. And what is funny, is that my boys still swam in the big pool too... They loved it.
Naked baby in the bath is so cute always
Riperian Preserve, all bundled in Daddy's jacket (it was deceptively chilly)
We did see a snake in a tube for water, a rattler?
Well the kids will say yes for sure :)
Little cutie fell asleep for most of the walk
They FiNaLLy got to touch a saguaro cactus
Just some funny shenanigans.
And Jonathan fell asleep at the top of the stairs!
Nathan of course found a race to participate in.
The Tour de Mesa.
A lot of people, and a lot of people who have been able to ride all winter...
Any race that doesn't involve a crash is a good race though in my book.
After his race the boys sent him on the annual scavenger hunt to find his present
Happy birthday to Nathan! Big 33! We went out with Jon and Heidi to a cajun food place. So yummy with some of our favorite people :)
Playing outside in the beautiful sunshine
Wonderful day and a wonderful run to the temple with Heidi
Watching conference Lovell style
Syd the baby whisperer with Jordan
Roasting marshmellows with Taylor outside
Some quality time with Uncle Jon
Sunday conference...again, this girl and this baby :)
I mean look at that, Jack and Londyn holding hands and he's so fast asleep
My boys just adored their girls, and vice versa.
What a great visit, we did not want to leave
Little cutie giving mommy kisses as we stopped on our way home
We did stop at the Moqi Caves while heading home, and it is really a museum with a large gift shop. It was a cave that the original owners many, many years ago carved out to make bigger, and they would have live performances in there. A lot of mixing old and new things. A (retired) bar inside, and they only let a few people through at a time, and you have to have the guided tour.
Anyway, kinda neat but not what we expected, and we had passed these things all those years of driving to AZ. "And that's the rest of the story".
