Spring Break

Spring Break is here and we could not be more ready for it. We have been hangin' on, puttin' one foot in front of the other, waiting for some rest and reprieve from the rigors of life. So this week long spring break is just what the doctor ordered. We will be playing, laughing, eating, sunbathing, swimming and doing all-things frolicky and fun. What a blessing. What a blessing.

In other news, wasn't General Conference fantastic!?! Holy cow. I couldn't believe how many addresses were tailored to our family. I am so grateful that inspired leaders got the memo on what our family needed ;0) Some of my favorites were from Jean A. Stevens and Richard G. Scott. Wow, could we relate. What a teacher Adversity can be.

My goals for today? Hold hands as much as possible, Wink at my sweetheart, Laugh even more, Snuggle each one of my babes and tell them why they are such an important part of our family and Capture as many of these moments as possible with a camera. I have learned (the hard way) of the importance of capturing life's images. They may be all you've got to remember the most tender everyday moments in your life.

Have a fabulous day, friends! xoxoxo


  1. I thought of you family SO MUCH this weekend. I agree - there were about 10 talks where I thought of your family. It was such a perfect weekend.

    By the way, I edited you photo of Kates on my blog for fun. http://sidwelldesign.posterous.com/i-edit-your-photos

  2. it was an incredible weekend, and like the commenter above I remember thinking of your family during numerous talks and realizing the tender mercies of the Lord. I had no idea that Elder Scott had lost a young child - we were all so touched by his talk, and it must have been an extra soothing balm for your family.

    enjoy your spring break! hope you relax and love every moment of the time with your beautiful family!
