Thursday night after Brian's phone interview and Keegan's play practice we jumped in the car for our 4 hour turned into 5 hour drive. We unfortunately hit torrential rain from Salt Lake to Beaver (yes we do indeed have a city named Beaver which is bad enough on its own but you have to go through Fillmore to get to Beaver. Fire away with the jokes we've heard them all). The rest of the drive was great. We didn't really have plans and spent Friday reading, swimming and letting Keegan watch Cartoon Network. Sometimes its really nice to just have a day with no plans. We did find out via FB that Brian's relatives were also in St. George doing the Red Rock Relay (similar to Ragnar but only 65 miles instead of 200). So we made tentative plans to meet up for dinner. Saturday we had plans to go to Zion National Park. Its about 35 miles away so an easy drive. I had wanted to get an early start but I know my crew; they don't do anything fast so getting breakfast and out the door took all morning. Additionally we ended up stopping at the pool for a quick swim before heading out.
My little fish. He took my snorkel for the whole weekend.
After we got Keegan out of the pool. And he did a quick organization of the room (he has this thing with organizing that is really funny but sometimes annoying) We headed out to Zion. Unfortunately Daniel fell asleep in the car. When he takes naps he wakes up grouchy with a headache. The first bit of our adventure was wrought with teenage grumpiness to the max. We ended up doing a hike that neither Brian nor I had done before.
This is an example of what a grumpy 18 year old looks like. Lucky for us some Tylenol fixed the headache and the hike out was much more pleasant.
I would have liked to do one more hike but the boys were done so we headed back to the motel where Keegan decided that another trip to the pool was in order. I was thinking maybe an hour but the outdoor pool was really warm so we ended up out there for two. Then Brian came down and told us that his cousins were back and they wanted to meet at the pizza place across the street. We had a great time. Too much sun, too much swimming or the Wendy's we picked up in Springville? Who knows but Keegan woke me up at about 10:30 to tell me he felt sick. Then proceeded to vomit all over the white duvet. Wonderful mom moment. Whatever it was it was quick and over. He felt great once he evacuated his belly.
