Families are Forever

I have to say the best part about our trip to Idaho other then seeing family was going through the temple with Sam and Natalie. For the first time ever the whole family got to be together in the temple and words cannot describe how amazing it truly was. It was a truly perfect day outside and the Rexburg temple is absolutely gorgeous inside, if you are ever in Idaho and have a chance to go take it. I am so thankful to be a member of this church and to know that I will get to be with my wonderful amazing family forever. I love you all so much and count my blessings everyday that I get to call you all family, I don't know what I would do with out each and everyone of you.

Rock Solid

While in Idaho the boys were in the mood for a little adventure and Ben talked me into coming along. I was just going to sit and watch but once Heidi went up I had to try also and I did enjoy myself but my heart was pounding the whole time especially since I am TERRIFIED of heights. It felt good to conquer my fear but I have no desire to do it again. The boys of course climbed up the mountain like it was nothing, but us girl's gave them a run for their money. Stephen did an awesome job and Joseph, Luke and Shelby also had to give it a try and help with the ropes.

24th of July Parade

We were lucky enough to be in Idaho for the parade and what fun we had. I just love this parade they have the best floats, we always have GREAT seats (Thanks Jane & Jocie) and they give away chocolate milk. Since Grandpa is the Sheriff all grand kids that were in town were able to ride in his truck and throw candy.
Stephen, Joseph, Luke, Shelby and Heidi all ready to go!!

My Once Upon A Time

This year I was given the wonderful opportunity of being able to attend Girl's camp with the most wonderful bunch of first year's EVER!! I was a little intimidated at first seeing as how I haven't been to camp since I was a young women but my girl's made me feel right at home. We had the true first time camping experience with holes in the tent, raining all night, hail, all of our things soaking wet, bug bites, etc.. but through it all the girl's kept right on smiling and going with the flow. I am so impressed with the faith the girl's have and I only wish that all youth could be as strong as the youth of the church.

I love these girl's so much and really enjoyed getting to spend time with them and getting to know them better.
