Spring Weekend

This past weekend was an absolute favorite of mine.

On Friday night our branch had the opportunity to travel to a town an hour and a half away to spend the weekend away from city life as we listened to General Conference.

It was so relaxing to be completely away from the hustle and bustle of city life. No cell phone, no internet connection to worry about, just time to enjoy nature and the company of others in my branch.

This weekend we:

took hikes in hills found signs of Spring climbed trees like monkeys jumped from trees

listened to General Conference (which was so wonderful!)

smiled took pictures of Rosie dog and her nose and Molly dog observed the beauty of nature played croquet

slept in cabins got to know each other better

watched as children played with Molly played with Rosie and Molly ourselves played with glow sticks took pictures of (and held) a cute baby (I'm leaving this one un-cropped to show the background of the log cabin) I believe that Heavenly Father gives us Spring to remind us that new beginnings and fresh starts are possible. This weekend was a perfect example of that...

The people were great, General conference was wonderful (as always), nature was perfect. I loved being able to see the stars so clearly in the night sky and the big puffy clouds during the day.

A treasured weekend indeed.

How grateful I am for the blessings in my life!

Molly is just as cute as you said! Who would resist carrying her on a walk?! It looks like a beautiful place for a weekend away.

I just wanted to thank you for the sweet words of comfort you left on my blog! I love that hymn and cry every time I hear it. Thank you for that reminder!
