Sun Valley Pictures

Derek's sister took some group pictures of all of us up in Sun Valley. Here are a couple of quick pictures that I took while we were there. Tonight we are in a hotel in St. George. The babies cried a lot of the way here. We were so glad to pull into the Holiday Inn!! The kids went swimming. Presley went swimming for the first time and loved it!! I thought because she was so scared of the bathtub at first, that she would be the same with the pool. I wish I would've taken my camera to take pictures. I am excited to get HOME tomorrow!

Grandma and Grandpa Ries with the ALL the grandkids!!

The 7-year-olds

Tanner and Colin would much rather be fishing than posing

This was about as good of a picture of Landon as we could get!

Sarah is soooo cute!!
