Get-a-way!

Today was our Stake Conference. Our Stake building is located in Kearney, NE, which is a two hour drive each way for us...giving us a great excuse to get out of town for the weekend and play a little. We started our day Saturday with the boys getting their May Day basket full of goodies and delivering some that we made to some friends. We got to Kearney just in time to drop Christian off for some meetings. We met up with a friend and did some shopping while we waited for our husbands to get out of their meetings. We also had the opportunity to attend the adult session that night due to the generosity of a couple of girls from our branch that were willing to watch our kids for us...that means Christian and I have been on a date two weekends in a row...go us!! After our meetings were all over, we met up for dinner with some friends and then went back to the hotel to swim. The pool was FREEZING and the hot tub was, well...HOT, so we didn't end up swimming for very long. Carson was rather disappointed!! He had been looking forward to it the entire day. After a room change (we couldn't lock the sliding glass door becuase it didn't shut all the way...nice) and showers, it was late and we headed to bed. Today we attended a really good Stake Conference. After church, we had a picnic with some other members of our branch on the grass. It was a beautiful day, so it was nice to let the boys get down and run around before we made them sit for another two hours in the car, and fun to visit with friends. It was a great weekend and a nice get-a-way before Christian gets super busy with the summer growing season!

Carson's first experience with crab legs. He loved them, but it took lots of team work for a little bit of meat! It was fun to watch him and his friend try to get the meat out!

Swimming fun...

Picnic after church.

Have a ever said how much my boys love cookies and milk? Well, they do. I go through twice as much milk in a week if I make cookies...especially chocolate chip ones! Travis recently discovered his love of cookies and milk too! He loves to get them and eat them stading at a chair...it's just the right size and oh, so cute to watch him dunk his cookies!

That is a long way to have to go for stake conference. But, at least you had an excuse to get out. Looks like a great weekend.

We also just had a similar weekend. Our stake conference was about 1 1/2 hours drive to Cheyenne. So we too made a weekend out of it. Glad that you got out of town and had fun!
