We got to spend time with Dee's grandparents too. It was wonderful to see them!
We went on a short hike to Emerald Pools at Zion's. this one was paved enough for us to take Mia in her stroller, just a few rough areas. It had rained earlier in the week so there was a good amount of water. Mia enjoyed the scenery and touching everything along the hiking path.
At Emerald Pools. Dee took Mia under the waterfall. It had rained earlier that week and was pretty wet when we went.
We also drove through the tunnel through Zion's on our way home and got to see the other side, which neither of us had ever done before. It was pretty and different from the main tourist (West) side.
Waiting our turn to go through the one way tunnel.
We went to a children's museum and Mia had fun exploring. Across the street we rode a carousel for the first time with her. I think she liked it.
Teaching her how to milk cows.
No Daddy! Don't feed me to the dragon. I'll be good!
Tree house fun.
First time on a carousel.
We went swimming at the pool where at the house we stayed at, and Mia really loves the water. it had a great shallow area that she could walk in and still be head above water.
Dee at Sand Hollow. They rented a wave runner, canoe, and paddle board. Looks like a lot of fun!
At Cedar Breaks. Much cooler at over 10,000 ft than in St. George. Really beautiful.
Dee's family is really big into board games and every night they would be up until 1 or 2 in the morning playing. We tried to not stay up as late, since Mia doesn't take into consideration how late we go to bed in her wake time.
But in the end all vacations must come to an end. Back to normal life. Mia was more than happy to get back to her own crib and her own room.
