Divine Roles

I gave a lesson in Young Women's today on our Attitude of our Divine Roles. As I was searching for lesson ideas I came across this song. I love it! It has hit me hard and has really made me realize what a blessing it is to be a Mom, to raise these special spirits. To help me look past the things that drive me crazy each day. To just love my kids and let them know how much they are loved. To help me not to be selfish of my time, they are my "job" they are the only thing I need to worry about each day (to a certain extent) I love the gospel and the comfort it gives to me, to know that I have an eternal family what a blessing. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I have.

Wolf Mountain

We used our Awesome pass of all Passes today and hit the slopes! McKell loved the lift, thats all she wanted to do. She also enjoyed going down the hill super fast between my legs. Don't think she learned anything today but it was fun for her to experience. It was a perfect day too, the sun was shining and it was warm. Her and Maddi wanted to hold hands going down the hill and she was disappointed that, that wouldn't work. :)

New York

We cut our trip short so we could spend more time in New York. So we got to spend the night with Kristy and Bryson thanks so much! The next day we got a quick tour of New York. We saw Time Square at night when we got there, the 911 memorial super cool, Statue of Liberty from a distance, Central Station, Stock something :) ate a yummy burger from the shake shack, and got in a nice morning run at Central Park. It was fun to see my sis again even though it was only a few weeks. I miss her like crazy, so 3 weeks seems like eternity. Thank You Kristy and Bryson for being our tour guides and giving a place to lay our heads and all the good food. And in 1 month me and my Mom and Sisters are going back to New York for the real Tour of the city. BOOYA!

Cruise baby!

Can't believe this was already a month ago. I wish we were just going haha isn't that how vacations are. We were able to head out for a cruise for our 5 year anniversary a couple months early (when the price is right you gotta do it). It was a 4 night cruise to the Bahamas! So much fun, it was just the two of us. We were disappointed with the cruise line, the food was not all that good, the entertainment was alright, and there were no ice sculptures haha.

Our first stop was Freeport, from what I heard they had a hurricane go through there a few years ago and it kinda ran the town down. We just caught a taxi and found a beach to finally get some sun. Don't judge me in a bikini and I can't believe I actually just put that on the world wide web, but its the only picture together on the ocean that someone else took for us. There was a nice part of the beach but that was private for the hotel. I LOVE THE OCEAN!!!

Second Stop was Nassau, my favorite place of all I wish we could have stayed there for the 3 days. We went to the water park Atlantis all day long. It was so cool, and there private beach was amazing! Water was warm, waves were big absolutely perfect.And yes I chickened out on this slide, look at that thing. Almost verticle! So we got to the front of the line and I went and looked down the slide and couldn't do it. So I told Jeremy to go first and I walked back down the stairs. haha But there were a few slides where you went through the aquariums, so we saw lots of fish and sharks. Neat. I hope to go back there again soon.Day 3 was Norweigans private Island, not sure why you want your own island it was kinda boring. And by this day Jeremy thought he didn't need sunscreen and fried himself so he didn't want to play in the water anymore. The cool thing about this place was that there were no waves so we used our goggles and saw lots of fish. I got the picture of the tractor cause thats what my Dad uses and they were driving them all the way in the Bahamas!

We couldn't have done it without amazing family, so we would like to give a shout out to Katie, Vanessa, and Mom Jensen. They were our babysitters and we are so grateful for them. Its always nice to have a vacation and know your kids are in good hands. So thanks again ladies.
