We had so much fun at ZION!!! I really wish we would have had more time. We spent most of our Saturday up there going on various hikes. Austin seemed to enjoy it as he loves being outside. We are already planning on more trips to go back!

While we were in St. George for T's race we thought we would hit up Zions for the afternoon and do some hiking. On our way there, just before the entrance to the park we hit traffic, and could not figure our why. Upon further investigation we learned that the tiny town we were in was about to have their St Patrick's day parade! We were about 7 cars back in traffic from when they cut the road off. We decided since we weren't going anywhere soon we might as well leave our car parked in traffic and hit up the parade! We had the perfect parking spot anyway! It was Austin's first parade, and we had so much fun watching all the people go by in the parade.
This year Trav decided he wanted to run a few races to try and get back into shape. When he was younger he ran a lot, and hasn't taken the time to do so in the last few years but thought he would get back into it. His first race this year was the spectrum 10K down through snow canyon in St. George. We had so much fun! Thanks to the Smith family for letting us use their condo for a few nights!

For Mom's birthday she wanted to celebrate it with family, food and fun. All of her birthday wishes came true! Even her brother Kent was able to make the party! The kids cooked dinner, while Marsha played with her grandkids! It doesn't get much better than that! Happy Birthday Mom!
This year Trav turned 31!!! It fell on a Saturday, and it had just dumped 36 inches of snow in the mountains so we figured we would hit up the slopes! We had so much fun snowboarding! When we got back, we played with Austin in the snow at Grandma Marsha's house. It is also tradition in James' family to have breakfast in bed, so Trav was treated to an extra nice breakfast in bed with eggs, pancakes, and a special little helper to make sure he cleaned his plate. Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes, love and support!
