Fun family weekend

This weekend Cory's family all came down to celebrate his 30th birthday. They got here Friday night, and stayed until Sunday morning - so it was a quick trip. But we had fun! We borrowed a slew of 4-wheelers and Rangers for everyone to ride and we took a trip down to Silver Reef - which is just outside of St. George. Lots of fun for everyone!

Gabe loved spending time with his cousins, and they had an equally great time I think.

This is Gabe with his little cousin Linzy. Now don't let the picture fool you - they might look the exact same size (and they almost are....) but Gabe is actually a full year older than Linzy. Those Mullen kids really have got some size on their side. Poor Gabe will probably be more of a shrimp like his mom and dad....

Some of the beautiful scenery we drove around in. The weather was GORGEOUS, and the landscapes we enjoyed were unbelievable! Lots of variety, and lots of beauty!

Cory tried to take it easy, and stay on trails...but he couldn't resist a time or two to take us "off road" and over some pretty bumpy terrain. There were 2 times on the ride when Cory said, "Uh, I think you might want to get out...." But interestingly enough - it was ok for Gabe to stay in....I guess it's just me being pregnant. (Sorry little baby #2 - I tried to tell him you didn't enjoy all the bumps...but he just doesn't listen!)

Gabe chilling while we stopped for lunch.

Look at these lovely Ellis ladies! (Ashley, Kori, Joanna & Mom "Tammy")

Gabe looks so serious and Linzy just smiles. We had a great time!

I thought you got a pic of the one where the Ranger was balancing on the rock! Your folks would be wondering if they saw that one! Ha!
