Easter 2010... Sand Hollow Sand Dunes

I usually really like where I live...
BUT...
When it says "Spring" on the calender-
(Notice I say when it says Spring on the calender because I would never know it looking outside my window at the SNOW!)
I get homesick for BlUE sKiEs & ReD rOckS!
St. George has the corner on the market for Spring!
Our little family left the cold
and headed South for Spring Break...
AND...
We met up with the entire fam-damily for a little Easter Picnic at the Sand Hollow Sand Dunes.
We all rallied in the RHINOS and had a great time!
We had over 40 people...
3 Snow families, 2 Spilsbury families, 1 Fillmore gang, 1 Dalley bunch, & 2 herds of Nelsons.
3 grandmas, 2 grandpas, 15 kids, many aunts, many uncles, 6 RHINOS, hundreds of Easter eggs, food for an army, lots of laughs, many pictures & a Happy Easter!
Here is the oldest...Grandma Connie and the youngest... Briggs.
Briggs didn't worry if there was a little Dixie red sand
on his food...infact, I think his diapers will be sand blasted for a long time.
So many fun cousins! These kids were BRAVE! There was a 50 foot cliff right behind them.
This is a picture of all the kids right before the Easter Egg hunt!
There were some VERY golden eggs... Mitch made over $50.00!
Caylor & Connie were just chillin' at the Sand Dunes!
kids, kids, kids...
They all hiked up on a cliff and were chucking Easter Eggs...
Grandma Viv said we were going to "roll Easter Eggs"... she just didn't think off a mountain!
All in all it was a fabulous was to spend Easter!
Lots of family, friends, and FUN!

Sounds like a lovely weekend - our family also loves Sand Hollow - we try to meet there each year sometime to gather with my brothers family who lives not far away.

Had to add you to my list - I love reading your blog..when I grow up I'm going to be just like you! Did Aunt Susan brave the eliments and join the fun? Our Easter was spent in the Insta care with Kent and a kidney stone! Nothing worse than a husband in pain. Book idea...have you read Hunger Games? 2 books series with the 3rd coming in August!

It looks like you had fun!

I have to agree with you on the St. George spring thing. We just got back from spending a week there and I didn't wanna come home to 31 degree weather.
