July 2013: My Parents visit STG

We had been trying to plan a good time for my Parents to come and visit St. George all spring... 
Well, they made it in the middle of the heat of the summer. We were so glad they came, and actually they brought some cooler temperatures with them. We showed them the sights of St. George... Dixie Rock, Tabernacle, Temple... all the main things!

The temple looked fantastic with the clouds that were rolling in.

My Dad wanted to visit Pine Valley. I had never even heard of Pine Valley. What a beautiful little, little town. Plus since the elevation is a lot higher, the temps were awesome to be walking around and seeing the sights. 

We got to see the Pine Valley Chapel, which was built in 1868, and is constructed like a upside down ship. Built by a past ship builder. ;) Good little history lesson by visiting there.
Randomly it was PINE VALLEY DAYS while we were there.
They had a little festival set up in the town square. Where the locals were doing musical programs, and selling handmade crafts.

I think this is the only restaurant in the town... but it was delicious!
We also to a little journey to the lake. What a beautiful place. We need to come back and do a little hike, and maybe a picnic at the lake... so pretty.

 Of course we had to visit Zion's National Park. Always beautiful.

Good times with the parents!
So glad they could come before the baby gets here... so we could show them around.
They enjoyed the pool and hot tub. ;)
Next time they visit will be when the baby comes.
Hopefully will be soon. Baby's due date is tomorrow (Aug. 21st). But according to my Dr. Apt. today doesn't look like she is ready to get out anytime soon.
