A well needed trip......


The Smith family finally took a vacation. Matt, the wonderful husband that he is, noticed that I was in desperate need of time away from our house. So with the help of his wonderful parents, they allowed us to stay in their condo in St. George this past week. What a great time we had! We spent the mornings together in our PJ's, went swimming with Saige, goo'd and tickled Milo, sat around and actually had meaningful conversation together (something that rarely happens at home), and having really nothing to do but be together, I had such a fabulous time. St George has a little carnival type event every Wednesday night, a local band, blow-up games, snow cones etc. Well with the booming night life down there, we decided that there really was nothing else to do so we stopped by and realized what a career Saige has in dance. With about 4-5 elderly people enjoying the smooth sounds from the band we thought Saige could cheer them all up with a little "santa shake" (her lovely dance moves, that she so graciously learned from a dancing santa doll). Smack dab in the middle of everyone, Saige runs up and starts dancing as if no one else was around. Soon the few watching are rolling in their chairs, and Saige is actually attracting others around. Soon the crowd has changed from 5 to about 20 and several are snapping pictures at the funny little girl, while the elderly are still crying with laughter. When the band started to pay more attention to Saige than their music, we decided that it was our time to leave. Enjoy this free concert, we will soon be charging for these!!

Scott and Lisa, Matt's parents, met us down there and so kindly spent the day with us on Thursday. Saige had the time of her life playing with Nana and Gramps at the park and was very upset with us when we left. Gramps and Saige played in the fountains and I truly believe she would still be there if we didn't make her leave.


We spent Friday and Saturday down in Mesquite, trying to soak in as much sun as we could take. After getting sunburned, exhausted from chasing Saige around the pool and eating way too many sweets, we headed home to our 4 dead fish and, thanks to our wonderful neighbor Macie, our happy (and still alive) chickens! And surprisingly Milo slept through almost everything!
