How I used to do the 365 picture challenge and then failed and then started kind of doing it and then failed again? Well, I realized that it's really fun to go back and look at those pictures, so I'm going to attempt it again but not beat myself up if I miss a day. So here's some catch up...

friday, september 10
Quinn was in town, so we went mini golfing with Sammy and Chase. It was a lot of fun.. they won. They always do. But that's ok. I love them anyway. It was good to see them and they were so cute all matchy matchy. :)

The next day, we went fishing with Quinn's sister, Jill, and brother-in-law, Kyle, and their adorable little baby, Becca (great name). It was my first time fishing and I loved it! I caught that little guy in the picture and then Kyle taught us how to cut those suckers up and cook them and we enjoyed some delicious bass (or rainbow trout). Later that day, we went up some canyon and had a fire and tin foil dinners. It was lovely. :)

I love little Garrett and Abby. They are the best babies. :) I drove up to Idaho and stopped in Logan to have lunch with them and Nat and Mal and it was so fun to see them all! I'm going to miss these little guys when Mal goes to Virginia on Friday because I'm betting our face time will dramatically decrease. But I was so happy they were willing to meet me and we could have some soup together. :)

I spent the weekend in Idaho with Quinn and it was awesome, as always. :) He's teaching me how to do the Rubick's cube and I've almost completely nailed it! He's such a good teacher. :)

More to come...

"Motherhood defines our very identity, our divine stature and nature, and the unique traits, talents, and tendencies our Father gave us...

"No woman who understands the gospel would ever think that any other work is more important or would ever say, 'I am just a mother,' for mothers heal the souls of men...

"Our challenge is to stand steadfast and immovable and unflinching as mothers in Israel and women of God. Our Father and His Only Begotten Son have given us a sacred stewardship and a holy crown in Their kingdom. May we rejoice in it. And may we be worthy of Their trust."
