Conference


My little family, Dad, Mum and sister traveled up to conference. It was an Amazing experience! We even got to be there for the solemn assembly. I was in awe of the huge ordeal it is to orchestrate such an event. All of the ushers, emergency personnel, sound guys, police, and sheer number of bodies all moving in an organized fashion.





On a funny side note...During the opening prayer I started noticing coughing then throat clearing. I couldn't help but wonder, "is this all intentional." I was too distracted to even listen to the prayer! It was so absurd to me. Eventually I realized that that Conference Center just has excellent acoustics and with that many people, someone is going to be coughing every .2 seconds.


Can't figure out how to rotate this one...use your imagination!



While I was in the Sat. A.M. Session:
Patrick watched the kids!

















While Patrick was in the Priesthood Session:
I went shopping at Ikea!

Just creating a wish list for when I go back and have room for goods...



When we got to go together to the Sunday PM Session:
My friend Alicia's Family was wonderful to babysit my kids in Sandy!
We were so blessed to be part of such a wonderful conference!

My favorite talks:

Daughters of God
Elder M. Russell Ballard

“My Words . . . Never Cease”
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Oh how I love the Morris blog! I laughed at Justin's little feet peeking over the sofa. I wonder if avacado trees would grow here?
