Staying close to home but havin' lots of fun

Willie & Isabella

My little princess hoping for some rain

Hmm wonder what she's thinking

Beep Beep Car one of Isabella's favorite things besides her wiggle car

Alway nice to have dinner with the four of us (Will is taking the pic)

Back to the 4th of July we had so much fun the pictures were too few & very blurry... Willie always has fun with fire.. that's my boy he loves blowing stuff up I told him he has turned into Sid on Toy Story because if you are an army man you do not survive in this household they all get blown to bits by rockets & fireworks..

Even to this day we go outside and Isabella is like we should do fireworks today..

Will kept squirting us all with the hose so Isabella found the opportunity to get her daddy back.. & I mean soaked

Could barely get them to stay still for a pic & we still can't go to the park without hearing and we can go watch the fireworks & jump in the princess castle & ride the rides & the train...

The Beach

We spent the day at Sand Hollow Resevoir just the four of us having a blast!!

We went during the week so we had a huge section of beach all to ourselves. We played in the water and the sand.

We brought our dog's with us & let them run around and play too

Our dog's loved the water just as much as we did!! Lucky was chasing birds and at one point she was out swimming so far we thought she might drown... You could pick her up out of the water and she would still keep moving her legs like she was still in it..

We had quite the set up

Keeping cool in the shade

Willie & Isabella made sandcastles all day long it was a blast!!

The only way to keep cool in the desert is to be by the air conditioner or close to water so... we chose swimming to cool off but in Southern Utah it is almost always a HOT day!!

The Carnival

We always have to go on the Ferris Wheel no matter how long the lines.. It is our favorite part of the Carnival!! Isabella kept yelling WHOO HOO while Willie kept asking "If we fall from this high would we die"

My Isabella has no fear & Willie is always thinking of what could happen
Willie- "Where's the seatbelt"
Isabella- "Look you can see Las Vegas"

The carnival was a blast we finished our night off with a yummy funnel cake always a treat. It was a fun evening at the fair!!

Red Cliffs & Silver Reef

We went out exploring close by to home you can find a lot of the old west

As we explored the old buildings it just made us imagine two cowboys ready to draw their guns & shoot each other..

We went out this way when we 1st moved down here.. Last time I took a pic of Willie here he was 6 yrs old now he is 12 time really flies by..

This was one of the few places that silver was found in sandstone

They had old cemeteries with multiple graves marked unknown & of course segregated areas this was the Catholic one.. When visiting the other graveyard the graves were creaking then the wind would blow all of a sudden.. it felt like a creepy old movie..

Will took this pic.. The arch is really as big as his fist but he blew it up so it looks like we stopped in arches.. It was pretty but way smaller than this pic.. Talk about trick photography..

Miss Bell's we tell her say cheese.. It's too hot mom..

We played on the Red Rocks for a while & took the opportunity to take a few family pic's since it was such a pretty spot..

Me & my kiddos even Lucky joining the fun

Will & I very rarely get pictures with us both in them..
Will & Des 13 yrs of marriage and still loving it.

I told Will "I am looking forward to growing old with you"
his response "Honey we are old" he he he

The Trujilllo's
We try to have fun with whatever we are doing!! Even staying close to home isn't so bad because we live in a beautiful place there are always new adventures just around the corner.

New York, Paris, & Princess Castles

Las Vegas the only place where you can see New York, Paris, & Princess castles all in one day...

Willie with his cousin Chantelle.. Notice the ear phones you know they both had their ipods on..

Willie & Isabella waiting for the Pirate ship at the Treasure Island.. What can I say they are crazy & cute!!

We got a great spot but good things come to those who wait...

My sister & niece

Will always love's The Coca-Cola store he is rubbing off on the kids..

Bella is so "Drinky"

Now that's a BIG GULP

Even Chany was thirsty

Always a quick stop at M&M world. I think Isabella was not too sure about the M&M... She looks ready to run..

Beep Beep

Spider-man.. Spider-man..
Bella getting some spider-man action too although she did the Spider-man hands with Hello Kitty.. Look at those webs go..

Freddy Kuger... Gave me nightmares... SpOoKy

We had lot's of fun showing my sister everything from New York to Paris and Princess to Pirates.. Everything from flowers to fountains to M&M's to Coca-Cola!! We had some great times with our ROMERO family too!! We laughed... we cried...

Our dad is the best!!



My dad & his "lap dog"


Wait gotta get a picture
"shake it like a polaroid camera" my sister's funny song (inside joke)

Isabella asked me "Mom can I have a beer" thank goodness she meant root beer

It was a great time visiting with my Romero family!! We really need to do this more often & next time with everyone there!! Only in Vegas can you go from Paris to Egypt & enjoy family, fun, & sun!!

Don't forget the water it is Hot in the desert..
