You might remember that last year I wrote at article for Power Of Moms called, "Mom Adventures."  It is about a summer tradition that we have had for several summers to set aside one day a week that I focus on my kids and we have an adventure together.  Here is our first adventure for this summer:

We have been taking walks each morning this week by a beautiful lake near our home.  We usually end up walking about 2 miles.  Today we were determined to make the full loop around the lake which is about 4 miles.  The kids weren't worried about their ability to finish the course, they were worried about my ability to finish the course!  I am a bit slower when I am pregnant!  The kids were awesome, they pushed the stroller to give me extra speed and literally ran circles around me!  We completed the course in 1 hour and 5 minutes!  Which is quite remarkable considering the extra weight I carry, the stroller, and the fact that we had six kids! (one of the boys was at basketball camp)

We had so much fun and felt such a sense of accomplishment.  After picking up our basketball camp boy we went through a drive thru for hot dogs and went to a park we had never visited before and enjoyed the perfect 65 degree weather!  

BYU Women's Conference

Looking back to my trip to Utah at the beginning of May:

The night before I flew out for Women's Conference I was able to go to the temple with my daughter and the rest of the youth in our ward!  It was a perfect way to start my weekend.  
I met these two wonderful friends in Utah.  
It was amazing to be apart of this large gathering of amazing women!  
I can't describe how thrilled I was to run into my dear friend Dinah!  It completely made my day!
We sat right behind Sister Peterson who just returned from serving a mission in our ward! 
So many individuals blessed us with their knowledge and wisdom!  
My mom and dad drove all the to BYU to come see me!  
I was able to see my brother Kaden and his wife, Carianne.  
We ate delicious food.  
We stayed at Elise's mom's house and I gleaned so many organizational, decor, and cleaning ideas!  
The pictures don't begin to show how amazing her house really is!
