general conference

We had such a great conference weekend!  Nik made us some bacon and eggs for breakfast and then we watched the Saturday morning session in our pajamas eating some yummy snacks.  Nothing better than that.

Autumn and Katie came to stay with us for the weekend which was lots of fun.  We watched the afternoon session and afterwards we headed up to silver lake up big cottonwood canyon.  We wanted to see the fall leaves changing colors but it was super rainy so we couldn't see very much.

We decided to walk out to the lake anyways during the middle of a downpour.  Once we were soaked it finally stopped raining and we were able to see how pretty it was.  We sure are blessed to live so close to such beautiful mountains.

Autumn got us some tickets so we were able to go to the Sunday morning session!  When we got there they said that all the seats were taken and that they were closing the doors.  Nik pulled a few strings and got us in. :) It was so great to be there and listen to the prophet, apostles, and other speakers.

It was great to spend some time with Katie and Autumn for conference weekend.  I sure do miss being roommates with them.  It feels good to catch up and spend some time together.  Nik and I are looking forward to many more adventures together.

We had a great weekend listening to some fantastic speakers.  I've learned to love General Conference so much.  I can't wait for next conference!
