Not really. I'm not going drone on about everything that's happened since I last blogged. We're happy and well. Life is good to us. We are busy with work and callings and life. I just have been busy, unmotivated, whatever about blogging. But since my original intent was for this to be a sort of virtual scrapbook and journal for our family (since I have long ago abandoned any thought of producing REAL scrapbooks) I decided I had better make a few entries occasionally. We spent a few days this past week (spring break) in St. George. Zion's National Park is lovely and gorgeous and not too far away. But it is somewhat of a drive from St. George and we opted for the smaller, closer, but just as lovely Snow Canyon. Beautiful red rock and perfect temperatures made this a wonderful hiking experience for our little family. And what three boys wouldn't love to get out and get dirty in red sand and climb some mountains? Elizabeth tolerated it but preferred to be carried most of the time. I guess I've been away from blogger long enough that the format has changed and been updated. I can't get my pictures in order and they are being inserted in strange places. Oh well. Anyway, while we were in St. George we stopped at the cemetery to find my grandparent's graves. They are two of the sweetest people you'll ever meet and I miss them. We took some pictures by their graves, decorated the headstones with dandelions and stopped by their old house. I always get a little teary when we turn down their little drive and approach the house that strangers now live in.
