After going out on the wave runners, Tessa spent most of the day in the water with Trace. I'm sure she was telling him some story or something. She's really animated.There was this island in the middle of the lake, so everyone wanted to go cliff diving. This is the boys at the top, awaiting their destiny.
I got pictures of all of them, but this one it the best. No, it's not flipped wrong-Jordy was really horizontal to the water, because he had done a flip off of the cliff. It was beautiful.
Tessa fell asleep in Mindy's lap-she was really tired! So this is our little family, with Tessa zonked.
The next day, everyone went swimming at the Green Valley swimming pool. It was fun just to sit there, even though we didn't stay very long-Tessa fell asleep walking back to the pool, again in Mindy's arms. Mindy has a way with her. But before that, she was quite animated, once again.
Everyone hanging out. If you look really closely in the background, you can see Doug carrying everyone's stuff over to where we were sitting. He did that twice. So helpful.Tessa didn't actually want to swim, she just wanted to push everyone in. So this is her leading Leslie to her doom.
And this is her pushing Doug. He got it the most I think.
Day 3-Zion National Park
The next day, we went to Zion to hike. I know, right? I'm totally outdoorsy now. But one fun thing was that it was Free National Park Day! Everyone loves free.
Tessa on the shuttle. She has no idea what's coming.This is how Tessa traveled most of the way up to the Emerald Pools. Being a kid rocks. I tried to get Alex to carry me on his shoulders, and he rejected that idea. So lame.Proof we were there. I totally climbed up on that rock to take this picture. Suck on that.Tessa's model pose. She was eating an oreo at the last pool and kept striking this pose. I don't know if she was trying to impress someone, but I'm betting not, since she does this kind of stuff all the time when no one's watching. Or when someone's watching, she doesn't discriminate.
I have a ton of other pictures of the days we were there, but we could take all day if we post those!! It was a really fun trip and we were sad to leave. Mostly because Alex left the next day for Houston, and no one wants that. And Tessa and I already are driving each other crazy, so the next two weeks should be awesome!
