Thanksgiving Day Hike

We went to St. George to have Thanksgiving with Stan's family.
It was so much fun :)

My contributions were the gravy, homemade cranberry sauce, six pies and eight dozen rolls. We ate on Friday, so Thursday our little family (little compared to the 45 people at dinner) went hiking.

Stan forgot his hat, so he put one of my canvas shopping bags (that I always forget and leave in the car when I shop) on his head. I told him I am so in love that he could look ridiculous and I still think he's charming :)

I love the colors of the desert, especially the pale greens contrasted with the black volcanic rock. Aren't the cottonwoods with the sun shining through their leaves pretty, too?

What is it about seeing a rock that inspires conquest?

Speaking of challenging rocks, Stan rappelled down this arch back in high school.

It was so nice to be out in the cool air and warm sun.

It was especially great to spend time with Summer...

...and have fun with her :)
