Just as I was snapping these pics Taylor said, " Oh no, Mommy's taking selfies again."

This is a hilarious picture of the kids hugging their daddy while we were in park city. I told him he needed to make it a goal to tell them every day that he loved them and show them more affection. This is what they got- I promise Jeebs was not stoned. He told me my goal needed to be not to say the 's' word anymore. It's my favorite.

My husband gave all our children (except Ezra) a Father's Blessing last night. I am always so grateful when I see my husband exercise his priesthood. I love that he is a worthy priesthood holder and blesses our lives daily with it. Even though Ezra and Mookie were running around and making noise we could still feel the spirit and I could feel the love Jeebs has for his kids.
And, because I need the extra lift and I am D-pressed about school being in session again, I asked him to give me a blessing as well. I was reminded of the love our Heavenly Father has for me and that He is concerned and interested in all the worries and troubles we have- no matter how insignificant they may seem to others. I have known for a while that He hears and answers prayers, but it is so real over and over again when you hear in a blessing that your prayers are heard. Every night I prayer for Heavenly Father to please bless my sister to know how much I love her and miss her because that is the best way to get a message through, right? And to be reassured and given an update of her in my blessing is the best gift ever. She is happily doing the Lord's work on the other side and looks forward to the day we are reunited. I still have a lot of work to do here, but I can't wait to see Yang again. It's a good thing my siblings and I have the relationships we have because we can go years without seeing each other and still be back to our normal selves talking like we were never apart and for that I am so grateful! Life is hard, but the gospel is so good.

When I was younger I thought the best place on earth had to be the beach. After living near the beach for 5 years I can now say that has changed. I still love the beach, but I love the mountains more. I always feel totally at ease as we hike and take in the scenery. When we head back down towards the valley I feel my mood change. It's weird, but my mom is totally vindicated. We hiked to Ruth Lake up the Uintahs and it was so nice to finally get another hike in now that summer is almost over. Sad face
