Youth Conference

On Friday I left to go to our ward youth conference. We had it at Camp Lo Mia. (our girls camp in Pine) It was an awesome experience. I really didn't want to go. I had a long list of reasons why I shouldn't be going (distance to the closest bathroom in the middle of the night being my greatest fear!), but I knew I needed to go so I went...I'm so glad I did. These kids in our ward are stinkin amazing.
The theme was 'A Sure Foundation' and we used Helaman 5:12 as the scripture. We even memorized it to a song! Wish you all could hear me sing it!!! ( We also learned to Salsa dance so I will be sing and dancing in no time!!!) I sing as well as I dance!
Our keynote speaker was my brother in-law Tracy's cousin that is an institute instructor and a speaker for EFY. He was super. One thing that he talked on is how the Lord works miracles in our lives. He taught us that miracles happen everyday and we don't ever notice them or thank Heavenly Father for them. I never really thought that a miracle can be as simple as a change of heart to something that can be physically seen... I really appreciated it because I feel like us having a baby is a miracle!!!

Another one of my FAVORITE things from conference was this little movie that was shown in one of the mini-classes. I really, really liked it, so here is a link to the movie (it's only about 2 minutes long) It is called 'The Dash' you should watch it, it really made me think about what is really important in life... tell me what you think of it!

Here is a group picture (some of the cars had already left so some of the kids are missing) We had about 100 14-18 year old boys and girls there!!!) Can you say hormones!!

These are some of my Mia Maids...nice skunk hair Kimee!
By the way, now that we know we are having a girl, we need some name ideas, so lets hear them!!! Just don't give me names that you want to use if you are in my family...or I just might want to steal it!!!

We had a great time in Colorado! It was fun hanging out with Isaac, Jenny and kids and the Luna Family before the reunion. We did a rafting tour on the Animas River. It was fun...all until Jenny had to pull me back into the raft and all I could do was laugh and not even help my self. I landed on my face in the bottom of the raft. I KNOW it was GRACEFUL! Guess what... we don't have a picture of it! LAME!!! We look forward to going to Colorado every year.

The Jack reunion was so fun. I am a picture retard...I didn't take one picture once everyone got there. (The reunion was where we were camped) We played in the river, played "do you know Jack"...Lynn did a great job making up the game. It was fun. It was great to see everyone!!! The Luna's were in charge and did a great job. There was fun for everyone!!! Can't wait until next year.
