Thank Goodness for Weekends

It appears the only thing that I ever have to talk about these days are my weekends..... So here's to another weekend.....

All of these Pictures were taken at Snow Canyon State Park. It is kind of funny, we have lived here in St George for over 3 years now and Saturday was the first time we have ever been there, we can see if from our back yard but no we had never been there. There didn't really seem to be any absolutely awesome hikes there but maybe we just didn't know where to go. One thing that did look really really fun was all of the rock climing that there is to do there. That is one things that I would love to do. Last year we looked at all the gear that it requires (ropes, harneses, etc...) but it can be spendy and we wanted to make sure that we would use it enough to make it worth it and so far with work as almost unbearably slow that it is, we probably still won't buy the gear! Saturday night we had a ward dinner that was pretty fun. I got Darrell to swing dance with me, which hasn't happened in YEARS!! We couldn't remember all the stunts and tricks that we use to know but it was still pretty fun.

This weekend was a pretty good weekend. Friday afternoon we went to go buy some food at the grocery store and ran into an old friend of ours who is in a band and was playing that night at a local bar. We did not have anything at all planned for the weekend, as usual, so we went. It was actually the first time I have ever been in a bar. At the new year they banned smoking in bars, so that was nice that we didn't have to breath in that stuff the whole night. As for the band, they are actually pretty good. The band name is The Closure, I believe. Drunk people really do make fools of themselves. The later the night got the more people triped and stumbled while they dance, slurred their speach and all in all made fools out of themselves. It was kind of funny. Thank goodness I was raised with the gospel and don't live that kind of lifestyle.

Saturday we went hiking up in the hills above St George. Here are some pictures of that.

It was a pretty cloudy day. It actually started to rain alittle while we were there. We left shortly after that
Us! This picture was actually really hard to take because we had to put the timer on the camera and then on of us had to climb back up into this hole we were in within 10 seconds, and we had to get Bandit to sit still that long! Almost impossible!!

And Darrell..... of course, climbing up a cliff! At least it wasn't a 75-100 foot one of however tall the one he fell off was! I actually did try and climb this one, I got about half way up and the found I wasn't tall enough to put my feet in the next foot hold so I climbed back down, with darrell telling me where to put my feet.
