September 2013


Nick and I were able to again attend and help with the Labor Day Lk10 simple church conference.  We had a fabulous time reconnecting with friends and “family” as well as meeting and creating new memories. We all were able to experience church in small groups and learn from others as they facilitated sessions on sacraments, family, leadership and money.  We had a great time and already have next year on the calendar.

20130810_151535We joked about “Hurricane Girard” yet while Nick’s sister, husband and 4 kids came from Italy to visit for 2 weeks, it was a bit crazy.  Nick and I were able to take the two older girls on their first camping in the woods trip.  Minus the rain and pinched finger we had a super successful camping trip. We camped near Rocky Mountain National Park and then headed there to hike and see wildlife.  The girls had a great time and even passed to become a JR. Ranger.
