St. George and the Sibling Sensation

 Have you ever been to St. George? Larry and I just spent five days there with my siblings and their spouses. We rented a house, complete with a pool and game room, about a quarter of a mile from Snow Canyon.

We had a great time. Of course, because we all live in different states and the travel restrictions, we haven't seen much of each other for a while.

My 98-year-old father died the October before the world closed. (I'm so grateful he died before the stay-at-home orders. It would have been tragic if we hadn't been able to spend time with him or celebrate his life at the end.) As siblings, we met fairly often during my dad's final years. Of course, at that time, all our get together were tinged with sadness as our dad's impending death hung over our heads. But this past week was just about fun.

Biking through Snow Canyon. Spelunking in lava tubes. Hiking in Zion's National Park. A night at the fabulous Tuacan Theater. Dinner at Magleby's restaurant (their chocolate cake with raspberry sauce is to die for.) Lounging at the pool; Shooting pool. Playing pickle ball and ping pong and lots of card games.

How about you? Are you able to spend time with your siblings? And if so, what sort of things do you like to do?
