June 13-16, 2012 The rest of the visit

I have been very remiss in updating my blog. We had such a great visit with Nathan, Sam and Jonathan. Here’s what else we did –

We took a hike at the Little Black Mountain Petroglyph Site.

Slow down, Zayde!

Nathan rocks!

In the afternoon we all headed over to the Sand Hollow Aquatic Center.

Sam loved the slide in the kiddie pool area

Nathan enjoyed going down the big slide as long as Jon was there to catch him

Here’s Nathan running up the stairs to slide again!

After such a big day, everyone needed a little quiet time.

The next day it was a unanimous vote to go to the pool again!

On Friday we all went to the somewhat lame Rosenbruch Wildlife Center. I am not sure how posing taxidermied animals in fake scenarios helps with wildlife conservation. The boys had fun, though.

The last big thing we did was to go out to brunch at Mesa Grill in Las Vegas before it was time to catch the flight home. The food was great and Jonathan, Nathan and Sam had a good time.

I am really looking forward to the next time they can visit in St. George!
