Craig wowed us all yesterday morning as he crossed the finish line! We were glad to see he was still whole and smiling. I always get emotional at the finish line of marathons--running or not. Such a feat! And St. George puts on a great race. Seth and Lucy cheered Daddy on and he brought them ice cream from the post race tent! Craig and I have made plans to enter for next year--anyone in--anyone want to watch our kids?
Another highlight of the trip was the drive through Zion's national park--worth every penny of the $20 fee to wind through breathtaking scenery. It had just rained and so everything was even more saturated with color than usual. We drove with the windows down and the heater on, what a magical place. If I weren't 9 months pregnant, we would have summited Angel's Landing.
It was a longer trip than any of us cared to be in the car for. Thank goodness for winner rest stops! One of our favorites is the Glen Canyon Dam--complete with grass, a stroll over the bridge, a view of the Dam, a live endangered fish display, and clean bathrooms (and no hostess crumb donuts to tempt me).
We topped our St. George experience off with a trip to Larsen's Frostop for burgers and onion rings with fry sauce. It was a great trip despite the driving to out-of-the-car ratio. It was a bonus to have Craig's brother Brent (aka Uncle Tom) along. Sorry for the cramped camry situation, Brent, hopefully next time we will have upgraded to a car we can actually fit into.
