Parade of coveting

Last weekend we went to the St. George Parade of homes, other wise known as the Parade of I hate-our-small-townhouse.

Check out the view, you can kinda see it in the reflection.

This house had a soda machine.
And an ice cream bar.
On the left side of this picture you enter a tunnel under that building at the back of the poolAnd you find this hot tub,
if you continue through a tunnel, you find this, which is in the opening you can see on the right side of the above picture.

This is in the basement, along with a full work out gym, putting green,

basketball court, with a 218 " screen on the wall,

and racket ball court. Yeah, that's just the basement.

The cute boy that's an extra here is Beckham. His dad is Blaine's cousin. They live in St. George and so we gave him a ride back to his house. Along the way we told him we were lost and could he tell how to get to his house.
His reply was just follow the arrows.
And yes, he did mean the turn signals on my car.
Is that genius or what! After all, they've never failed him before.

Later, we went hiking in Snow Canyon, it was just beautiful, as always.

This really didn't seem dangerous at the time, but the picture sure makes it look a little scary.

And my most exciting news is: right now my little sister April is in the hospital trying to get a kid out of her.

before entering the parade of homes, it should say you need to make $2mil a year to live here. But then we can all dream, that soda machine is sweet. I would love to get a McDonald's Diet coke on tap!! mmm April, yeah! soon....

Holy crap! It's like the Playboy mansion! Without the naked chicks. Too bad.

I've seen houses like this before and always thought to myself "who really needs all this crap? They're just going to get bored with it anyway." That's not to say that I wouldn't mind having in myself. It's just how I justify my coveting. Especially the soda fountain. I don't just want one of those, I NEED one. Fountain Dr. Pepper on hand at all times...heaven

Exactly why I quit going to the parade of homes.

When I come home to my clay floor lean-to I am just not as happy anymore.

I have never gone to the parade of homes. I'm too scared of how bitter I would be when I got back.

Snow canyon looks awesome and how exciting about the new little one!!

I was excited you put those on here I was telling Justin it and was able to show him! That house is awesome! Looks like you guys had a wonderful time!

Holdinator said...

Dude, why do people spend money on GPS when they probably already have perfectly good turn signals in their cars?

Jenn said...
