Girls Weekend

I come from a big family!
#13 of 14 children
Every November the girls meet in St George for a weekend of fun.
Katie and Gwen came for the party.

We stopped in Provo to have breakfast with Riley on the way down.

We arrive at the condo and the crafts begin.
This year we did keep the crafts to one day.

So happy to Gwen along.

 We are a little compulsive.
Assembly line work and we make tons.

We take turns preparing the meals.

Gwen is all smiles.

After a long day of crafting.  We headed to Kneaders for dinner.

Then Games.. This was the favorite this year's trip.

The next day we seemed to be all knitting various projects.
My mother used to knit so we think she is happy we are knitting and keeping the tradition going.
There is a picture of my mother over the mantle and we like to think she is happy that we are together and having a grand time.

This year we added an art class to the mix.

Great artists in our midst.

The weather was perfect.
Gwen likes to nap on the deck.

We had to hurry home.
Poppa loves his Gwen.

It was a fabulous trip.
So sad to take this adorable Gwen and Katie to the airport.

Conference Weekend

I love Conference Weekend.
I love the messages and the peace.
We had a houseful of boys.
Sometimes when Rye comes home he brings a "few" friends.
I did a lot of cooking and dishes.
Still a good weekend.

Mike was happy to take me on a little motorcycle ride for a break.

Cruising with the Creer's

Oh how I love Cruising.
I have also been dreaming of a train trip...
so we flew to Seattle and took a train to Vancouver.
The train station was so cool.

Vancouver here we come!
The train ride was delightful we rode thru "Beautiful Country".

We  explored Vancouver for a day then boarded the ship.

Mike was so excited to get his soda card!

We love that leisure life!
