Road School 2015

A few weeks ago we went to St. George for this year's Road School.  It was held at the Dixie Center where the guys had a booth.  They made contact with many Public Works Directors from the different cities throughout Utah.  They were able to visit with a few and they felt it will be helpful for future sales:)  On one of the days Kendra, Sarah, the kids and I went to check it out.  There was a lot of road equipment out for people to look at and Rafe LOVED the "big tractors" as he called them.  Of course, there were lots of booths with candy and the little boys each got a hat from the Caterpillar booth.

We all arrived on Sunday night and got to enjoy the whole week of being there.  On Monday, we drove down to Vegas to have lunch and visit with Grandma and Grandpa Hafen.  It was a nice time being together.  We had a feast of rotisserie chicken, macaroni salad, green salad, fruit, rolls, and some carrot cake for dessert!  Mare, Gabby and Scarlett came to visit for a while as well.  We hadn't seen Gabby since she returned from her mission back in February so it was nice to see her.  Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures:(  It was on my mind but in the hubbub of it all I forgot.  Brach did take on with Rafe and Scout on "Blaze" the bouncy horse.  It provided lots of entertainment for Rafe:)

Some other things we did throughout the week were.....
enjoyed time in the pool
went to the temple
ate out at some fun restaurants
played Dominion (a number of times)
found two new dessert places (Swig and The Fractured Prune)
drove around town with the top down:)
....and went hiking!

I don't know if you can call it hiking but we walked around this wonderful red rock park just a few miles from the house.  We climbed rocks, explored, chased lizards, and got to view the city at the overlook.  It is such a beautiful area and the weather was perfect!

There is a little park just a short walk from our house.  It has a natural pond with 'in house' ducks.  We brought some bread for them but they weren't too interested which was disappointing.  The day we left after having breakfast at "The Bear Paw" we drove up to another park that had LOTS of ducks that were VERY hungry.  They were so loud and aggressive that poor Rafe would have nothing to do with them.  Of course, Rick loved it and fed them all we had:)
