The kids always really look forward to General Conference. We are spoiled and my Mom makes them a package for each conference with games and such to do during the conference and my kids think it pretty much the greatest ever. Aaron woke up Saturday morning to find them diving into their box, Aaron said, "guys that is for General Conference." They said, "its Saturday, General Conference is today!" So after Camilla's soccer season opening game (she scored two goals!) and I took Carson to a baptism, we were all home and ready to listen.
Camilla went straight to her cutting book and stayed there a long time. I really enjoyed listening to this conference. I felt such a desire to be more charitable and serve others.
During the break we made cupcakes.
Carson loved smashing the oreos.
The girls couldn't wait to paint either.
Aaron spent most of conference listening while he went to work on trimming our backyard. Trimming our backyard is a never ending process.
I can finally see light through this part of our backyard. Notice all the branches on the side. We took down a lot.
There is still much more that needs to be trimmed back on this corner. Some of our trees are going over the fence this year.
We took walks during the breaks as well. Brooke rode her bike almost the whole loop.
And when Mom and Dad meet up and swap kids and don't do a car seat swap, sweet baby Spencer rode in a big kid seat. It just makes him look way too big to me.
It was a great weekend and our little family left it inspired to do a little better.
