General conference trip to Utah

Last January I challenged my kids to read the "Friend " magazine or The New Era magazine cover to cover every month and if they did we'd have a big prize! They ALL did it.  So we took all of them to Utah to attend the General Conference for our church. Ruth isn't old enough to go in so while we were in the meetings she spent time with my Aunt, Uncle, and cousin with her daughter. She had a wonderful time!  Which made it so much easier for us to enjoy our meetings.  Friday we toured Temple Square, This is the Place, and the Church History Museum.  (I did part of temple square with just the little girls while Larry took the older ones to do baptisms in the Salt Lake Temple).  Saturday was filed with conference, we were lucky enough to get tickets to both general meetings and the boys attended the priesthood meeting.  Sunday too and time with my cousins and aunt and uncle. We even ran into the White's  (a family from our ward who live around the corner) our stake President and dear friends that live in the other ward here in town. Such a small world! Everywhere we went we met people who knew friends of friends, or had some kind of connection. We truly are one big family and I find sisters everywhere I go!  It was a wonderful weekend and the kids traveled great!
Then also while we were gone we had our hard wood floors refinished. They are beautiful! I'm so excited to have beautiful floors!
