"Sun a shout, the breeze a sigh."

Nick and I made it to St George for a quick weekend getaway. No one was in town except for my Dad so I had the chance to show Nick the true St George experience. Well, most of it... We didn't get to hang out at FrostTop or cruise the Vard, but other then that we made it to a lot of of my favorite places. 
 We went downtown right when we got there. I didn't think St George could get any more adorable, but the new carousel and the movie on Main Street proved me wrong.  
 (These are my phone pics from the trip) 

Our trip downtown was followed by a Harmon's grocery trip and a barbecue for Nick, Kiki, and I in my Moms backyard. Afterwards, we took Kiki for a walk.. the walk quickly turned into a panicked sprint home when a thunderstorm rolled into town. I'm so happy Nick finally got to experience a St. George thunderstorm. He's heard me talk about them way too much and this one did not disappoint. I couldn't resist but to stop to take a few pictures... if only I had my SLR. I was pretty proud of what I captured with my phone though.


The following day we went to my Dad's glass studio to get in touch with our creative side. Unfortunately it was shortly after that we realized our creative side was a little lacking. We both made our own piece of glass and then combined our talents to create our glass replica of St George. It was a blast and we already can't wait to try it out again.

We ended our night with a trip to Springdale where we had dinner with my Dad & Terri. We went to the Patten family favorite the Bit & Spur. The weather couldn't have been any better. We were able to sit out on the patio with the rain falling all around us. 
It was beautiful.
After dinner Nick and I went to the O.C. Tanner Amphitheater for some Bluegrass. It was no Randy Anderson concert :) but it was a lot of fun

I love this town.
