Pioneer Trek


A few months ago, our Bishop asked Jess and I if we would be a Ma and Pa for the Stake Pioneer Trek, and even though we are young enough that we still look like we could be in Mutual - we said YES OF COURSE! It was weird at first because it seems like only yesterday I went on a trek as a young woman - but I had such a good time with my hubby and we got to practice our parenting skills on 8 little hool-i-gans!

The picture above is "our little family." We had four girls, four boys, and a little boy doll that was our baby on the trek. It was SUPER HOT outside, and the trek was up at Hardware Ranch in Logan, UT where there was hardly any shade and temps reaching 100*. We had a few "misfortunes" on the trek.... But that didn't stop our family from having the best time laughing and gaining stronger testimonies together. I had a really neat experience on the Women's Pull that made me appreciate the sacrifices the pioneers made on our behalf so that we can enjoy the blessings of the gospel and temples today.

Mile High City!


A few weeks ago, I had to travel to Denver for a training conference for my work. Somehow I talked Jess into tagging along with me, so we made the LONG 8-hour drive out there and made a little vacation out of it!

We did lots of sight-seeing and even went and did a session at the LDS temple in Denver.


On the way home from Denver, we took the long scenic route, which made our trip pretty fun! We went through Veil, CO; Grand Junction, CO; then down through Green River, UT; and made a stop in Manti to see our favorite temple and watch the Manti pageant with my cousins.
All in all - we had a great time together.... especially because the trip was FREE! =)
