(Sorry it's blurry)
Saturday, we went to Shawn and Lisa's to watch General Conference. They were so nice to let us come over and be with their family both mornings. Saturday, they made eggs and monkey bread and Sunday we had crepes! Yum!! General Conference was so great to listen too. Saturday, I noticed a theme of families. I don't know if it's because we are starting ours or if that was really the theme! I also noticed a lot of talks on physical trials. As hard as they are, I am grateful for having them. After Saturday's morning session we went home so I could take a test (got an A!) and for Josh to get some homework done. We turned on conference for the afternoon session and our TV was acting up :( So we went for a walk, since the weather was amazing, and then went and got ice cream. Later that night I had planned on going to dinner with Tahnee and my friend Brooke. I left right after Josh went for a run. Soon as we sit down for dinner, Josh calls and is locked out of the condo. Luckily, the weather was good and he just sat outside and waited for me. When I got back I was glad to see him chuckling and give me a hug. Unfortunately, he missed Priesthood session of conference. I felt bad and said we could go see a movie of his choice.
Sunday, we went to Shawn and Lisa's again. While we watched conference, we decorated Easter egg-shaped cookies. It was fun to be with them, Tahnee and Tyler and Tanner and Ali. We really appreciate them letting us come over!!
Then for the afternoon session, we went back home. Josh needed to do some school stuff and we needed to get ready for the Whitmore gathering later that night. For some reason, I had no energy during the second session of conference and could not keep my eyes open. Then having to get ready...sheesh! Luckily once we were out the door I was fine! Josh, Meg and I were the "guests of honor" due to our graduation and baby announcement. There were two other couples that are having babies too. We received three separate Willow Tree Figurines. I have two already and really want to start collecting them.
It was a lot of fun, and I was able to meet more Whitmore family members I have never met before. I made a new friend, Alayna, and we just had a great time being with the extended family. Thank you Connie for putting it all together and Geri and Lew for opening your home. Thank you to everyone who gave us our gifts, we love them and I have already put them up in our home!!
