Razring in Sand Hallow via seejaneblogAs soon as the little retreat was finished in Cedar City we headed a bit farther South to spend the weekend in St. George. We chose to stay at the Sand Hollow Resort – they have villas for rent that fit our family with extra space. It was sunny, fun, and a good dose of family time! Without sounding to whiney – it’s less and less common these days that we get time together with all of us. We “divide and conquer” more and more often. Dusty has taken kids on the past two weekends to softball and baseball tournaments in St George while I stayed home for dance competitions, homework and other commitments. Dusty’s travel/work schedule.

All pictures of the kiddos taken at Red Cliffs in Leeds, Utah – on the Red Reef hike.

Kiana: She started running one mile/day with me this past week. We’ve made it six days in a row! Instead of going long distances we are trying to see how fast we can both get our one mile down to. We track our runs on the Nike+ running app – both of us are down one minute from our first day!

Myla: Played in her first VARSITY softball game this past week!!!

Kiana: Kitchen dance party!!!

Myla: We were sitting at family dinner this past week when I noticed a sharpie marker “#15” on the inside of Myla’s wrist. Intrigued, I asked her, “Myla, what’s that #15 for?” With a little grin she told me… “Oh. That’s (boyfriend who plays baseball)’s number… when we have games, I write his number on my hand/wrist/arm, and when he has games – he does the same with my number – “#24” I sighed. Cutest thing I’ve ever heard!

Kiana: Went to prom with one of her best friends, Parker, and had such a great time. You can see a video of the day/date here!

Myla: I was late to Myla’s first high school softball game, and while I was hustling to get there – Dusty sent me a text that said, “Baby girl is playing short stop!!!” She had an awesome hit too! I’m looking forward to ten weeks of softball games, and lots of big hair ribbons tied into bows on her braids!

Kiana: Officially 17!!!

Myla: She made the high school softball team!!! I didn’t realize till tryouts that Utah state cut the freshmen softball teams from the state budget in years past, so there are only Varsity and J.V., this made Myla extra nervous but she made it! (thumbs DOWN for girl sports cuts.)

KJ: A fierce game of Blokus for this little trash talker… and watermelon juice shots!

Sela: Spends HOURS a day doing this stretch EVERYwhere we go!

Kiana: Has been searching online 24/7 for a prom dress. It’s not easy to find the right dress.

Myla: Passed her state foods test and gets to show off that accomplishment at school with this personalized apron!

KJ: This dude went temporarily missing on Wednesday after school this week. He had our nanny pretty worried when she couldn’t find him, his dad left work, I left school early, and we were ALL looking for him around our nieghborhood!
