The whole fandamily

We went to a family reunion in Utah last week. Our first stop was Vegas. After a LONG trip to Vegas (we had to wait an hour and a half for an accident in front of us), we made it. We figured Tyler would love to eat at the Mandalay Bay buffet. We were right, and he chose a plate FULL of meat. There was salmon, steak, prime rib, teriyaki chicken and a little bit of mashed potatoes to not make it completely Atkins friendly. Our little carnivore was so excited to eat his meat that he accidently started eating his finger too. He let out a huge scream for everyone in the casino to hear. After he chomped on his finger, he was done with meat. He settled on ice cream for dessert. We thought it was funny. What kid doesn't love an all you can eat buffet?

The next morning we left for Zions Nat. Park. We stopped at my all time fave- Cafe Rio in St. George. There are no pictures to be taken in Cafe Rio; I am serious. They are carfeully guarding their secret and delicious recipes. After St. George we made it to the Zion Ponderosa Ranch where Mike's entire family was. We had a good couple of days catching up, along with a short hike and some pool time. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Although it was so nice to return home to our own beds!

I thought Tyler's socks were so funny here. They were on backwards and one was up, the other down- what a 5 year old!

EVERYBODY in Mike's immediate family. For some reason I look like a giant!

Wow! That looks like a lot of fun! In that picture you do look stragely tall, and unless you've grown, I know you aren't that much more stragely tall than I am... :)

We would have LOVED to have seen you on our little stint to Cali. Next time, for sure!!

Hey, do me a favor and come to my blog and "Play Memory." None of the old Prescott people have played yet. It's from a few posts back...
