We were blessed to be able to go to General Conference
I love being in the conference center
I love the spirit you feel there
I love the messages we hear
I love being with family

This was our favorite "protestor"
She sang amid the ranting near by
We dropped the boys off at Priesthood
and loved these young men who sang hymns
another nice diversion from the ranting

Katie and I met my sister and her girls for
a fun night of shopping and good food.
We were done just in time to met the boys after Priesthood.
The next morning we awoke to winter.
It was a great quick weekend.

Family Reunions

My Dad has the best vision of Family Reunions.

Over 20 years ago we started to all go to Sun Valley every other year with the whole family

14 Children and spouses and children

We then went to the beach for a few years

Now it has evolved into just the children going on a cruise every other year

(the Grandchildren total 86 and the Great Granchildren total 165)

We just went on our third cruise together and had a wonderful time.

A cruise is the perfect stress free vacation.

What a wonderful week with my family.

We laughed, we ate, we played games, we just enjoyed being together!!
