Pine Scented Trees, just like the air freshener!

Mother’s day weekend was spent in St. George with all of mommy’s (my, that 3rd person thing is really hard to escape!) side of grandpas and grandmas.  These pictures are from our attempt, and success, at escaping the already 92 degrees in St. George, by going to Pine Valley.  Beautiful!  Unfortunately, my camera battery’s juices were squeezed dry and I only got a few pics. from the experience.  But what I didn’t get on film, I got a plethora of in relief from the heat and an eyeful of cool glistening water and tall fabulously scented pine trees.  Can you believe they smell better than the pine tree car fresheners?  They do!

Grandpa didn’t really want to wear his had, did he?

One more item of success while in St. George, was a date to the new Star Trek movie, which was fabulous!  I totally recommend it to Vulcan and non-Vulcan alike!

We learned that they actually recorded the scenes on Vulcan in Emery County on the San Rafael Swell, too cool!  Chris was so excited to know that his grandparents live so close to Vulcan.  On our way home from St. George we visited them in Orangeville and I swear I saw Chris trying to see if their eyebrows had gone pointy.

Your boys are really cute.

And yes, whenever I go into the pine-filled forests I breathe deeply, very deeply. Because it smells SO good!!

That area is so nice. I'm glad you got to commune a bit.

I haven't seen Star Trek yet, but I want to so bad! I'm glad you liked it, but your endorsement only made me more antsy...
