Camping Fun 2015
During our trip to Utah in August 2015, we went camping with my parents. One of the things that I love about my parents is how they make spending quality time with my kids a priority. My kids love my parents for that and as a result have so many fun memories with them.
Of course, the kids had to go exploring as soon as we arrived.
Lucy thought my parents' camper was the best thing ever!
It was a little windy the night we got there, but we had fun. We enjoyed a delicious tinfoil dinner and yummy s'mores for dessert.
The kids enjoyed spending time around the fire.
The next morning, the kids got up and went fishing with Papa.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
