National Park Day

So yesterday was National Park Day. Celebrating the birthday of our National Park system. We live about 45 minutes from, in my opinion, the most beautiful national park Zion National Park

If you have never visited put it on your list. Its amazing. GO NOW make your arrangements. Here is the link again.

So we ( meaning me and the kids, hubs was working)  decided that since we live so close and it was free all day that we would take advantage of it. 


  
 Shelby looks really happy right?
 Me, 2 kids in a National Park?

We even took my grandparents over to have lunch in Springdale. The town just outside the park on the other side from us.


We had the most amazing lunch at Wildcat Willies at the Bumbleberry Inn. The service was amazing and the food was mouth watering. They even had stickers Sheriff badges for my kids. They decor is amazing and some of it is even nailed down so even my kids can't destroy the place. 2 thumbs up for just that!!!

I told the hubs that from now on when we go we are eating there.

So good.

They have big portions on the kids meal so they told me up front that my kids could share a plate. It was perfect. 

Of course having my 2 kids without the hubs I only took a picture of my plate.  I had the B.L.A.T with sweet potato fries. Worth the drive alone. My grandpa had a salad and it was huge. My gram had a pasta dish and it was huge as well. You are for sure getting what you pay for.


             Pretty sure it was a good lunch all around. My favorite pic of the day. I love my gram.


After lunch we went and played in the Virgin River. A great way to cool off after your hike if you chose to do one. We did not but we enjoyed the water so much. We played for an hour or more, got really dirty and enjoyed the peacefulness. Another check mark for our summer bucket list. Find a beach....as close as we will get in southern utah.











Much better face!!!
 


On the way home I stopped and snapped some pictures. These are straight from my camera or phone with no filter or photoshop. I love them. Zion Canyon is jawdropping beautiful.

Happy Birthday to our National Parks.
