Road Trip Rundown

I tried to do this earlier, but the pics were too big, so I have to do it one at a time. A little more time consuming.

We had a great trip out to Utah over Conference Weekend, for those that don't know, the first weekend in April is designated by our Church to hold our World-Wide General Conference. This was Big D's first opportunity to be able to attend, since he turned 8 in December. Unfortunately we couldn't take our camera in the conference center and we didn't want to go back to the car so we didn't get any photos of that. But here are a few from temple square and the Historical museum.

We stayed 2 nights with our dear friends, Matt and Emilie and their hilarious son Caleb. We played games, ate at our favorite restaraunt in Salt Lake , and my new (2nd) favorite restaraunt in Salt Lake: Cafe Rio, went sightseeing, and just hung out! They are so much fun. Love you guys!

Then we stayed with Holly (my sister) and Jimmy and their 5 kids! What a bunch! I loved watching the kids bond. We always have a good time with them.

Back to Conference:

We attended the Saturday afternoon session with Big D. We were in a hurry to get in our seats so we didn't get to walk around the conference center, we will have to do that another time. Once we were sitting and comfy I looked over at Big D and he had big tears running down his cheeks. He has always been very sensitive to the spirit and I know he was really feeling it! It was a great experience for him. Of course he did get a little tired of sitting there and asked a few times when we were going to leave. Yup, he's definately 8.

Sunday morning my parents and my brother, Matthew came up from Manti to watch Conference and have lunch together. It was a nice surprise, since I didn't think we would see them this trip.

My favorite talk from Conference was a wonderful message to mothers. I loved it and need to read it everyday. It can be found here: http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-851-37,00.html.

Another talk I thought was great for anyone dealing with any abuse issues was this one: http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-851-15,00.html

We had a fun trip and it took me a week to get back in the groove of things. Hopefully it won't be so long until the next post!

Love Rodizio Grill, but Tucano's in Provo is great too. I love conference weekend, and really enjoyed all of the talks. I especially enjoyed Elder Bednar's talk, and President Monson's talks in P-session and Sunday morning. The mantle has been passed. It's great that Dylan got to go.
