Memorial Weekend

Memorial weekend was full of bbq's and fun time spent with friends and neighbors. On Saturday morning I went on my first long bike ride since last Fall. I don't like to ride when it's chilly outside - I'm whimpy that way. I headed up to Black Forest where there are some challenging hills (at least for me). There was only one time I felt like puking! It was such a blast! After I got home we headed over to our neighborhood park and had a fun time visiting, eating, and playing with friends. The weather was warm and gorgeous and believe it or not there wasn't even much wind!! Monday, we hosted a bbq at our house with some neighborhood families. The weather was much cooler but we still had a great time. I love Memorial weekend because it feels like the official start of summer!

I sent Kent home to get the cooler and camp chairs I had forgotten. I kind of thought he would take the van. Silly me!

Looks like a fun weekend! I'm very envious that you were able to have Elder Holland at your Stake Conference. I love being spiritually fed like that. I think I'm in need of some!

We miss you!

Jealous! How fun. You guys can all just pile in your backyards and have a big bbq.
