Our Week in Zion

We had a great trip to Zion with my parents. The weather was perfect cool in the mornings in the low 90's in the afternoons and in the 70's in the evenings. We were able to get out and do things in the mornings and then come back to the campground in the afternoon to cool off and rest. One nice thing about Zion is that they have a shuttle system to reduce the traffic in the park so we were able to pick up the shuttle right at the entrance to our campground and didn't have to do much walking with kids unless we wanted to. Check out my husband's great pictures from the trip:

While we were gone I got a couple of packages in the mail, what fun! I got the Sew What Skirts book, the sublime stitching book and several of their embroidery patterns and some kids activity cards that z recommends reviewed.

I found a great website recommended in parents magazine for swapping books, there is a link to their home page in the sidebar. I like the concept of this because all you pay is to ship it to the other person, rather than the amazon $3.99 shipping fee along with whatever the cost of the book is. I have just mailed off a book to someone and have requested three other books, I'll let you know how it works out.
