Spring Break

For spring break this year we headed to where the sun always shines, sunny St. George! We needed a break from school, and we couldn't wait to see the family and hang out for a week without worrying about studying. We definitely tried to take advantage of being on break as much as possible by going hiking, swimming and camping. It was really fun to hang out with the whole Gentry clan and celebrate some birthdays while we were there.

For Jamie's bday we had a family dinner and the kids played on the blow up slide forever. It was nice to relax and enjoy the company of the fam. For Chelsa's bday she had scheduled for all the girls to go to karaoke in Vegas. I think we are all still laughing from that crazy night! Finally for Harry's 60th, we made a split decision and went to the Tournament of Kings at the Excalibur. I think I was more excited than anyone else to see the show, but we all had a great time.

Here are some photos from the rest of the trip.

After we got back from St George, chase still had one more weekend before school started so we decided to head to the coast for a quick trip. Heidi and Eric joined us at the last minute and we were glad to hang out with them again.

We had a really good time on our break, and it was fun to see family and friends! We are excited for the spring weather in Portland so we can do some more mountain biking and hikes! For now, we are trying to get back into the groove of studying and keeping the grades up.
