This weekend we went down to St. George and are having a blast so far... I really don't want to come home tomorrow but I guess all good things come to an end.
One big thing that happened yesterday was Hannah finally jumped from the side of the pool!! She refused all summer to jump in from the side of the pool at our apartment, but yesterday she asked me to throw her in which I did, then I told her it was just like jumping from the side so she walked over to the side and jumped like it was no big deal. I was so proud and clapped and yelled for her. It was made even better by two aunts and uncles and cousins watching her do it. WOW!!! Now all three of the kids jump from the side with no problem. Hannah looks like a dolphin in this shot... I thought it was pretty cool!
We're going to shoot our new gun tomorrow before we head home, it's a 9mm Ruger hand gun and it will be my first time shooting it. Should be fun times.
On a sad note, the Thursday we left for St. George my mom and I had to put "Kitten" to sleep. She's been with us for about 10 years and has been the most awesome cat. She all of the sudden was loosing weight and not eating so my mom took her to the vet and he kept her over night and discovered she had a massive tumor on her liver which was causing it to shut down as well as a stone in her bladder. He suggested they could do surgery, but would most likely end up having to put her down. My mom decided to do it the next day which was Thursday. I was so sad but grateful we could be in the room with her when she went. I cried many tears as well as my mom. It's been really tough for her... I'm hopeful she'll get a new cat when she has had time to get over Kitten. We buried her in the back yard and put a big rock over the site as a nice little marker.

Well, to end on a more positive note we're having a great time here in St. George and at the same time are anxious to get back to things at home. It's been a great trip so far and we love being able to spend time with our in laws down here. Here's to a good week! Hope yours is good!
