Sweet Moment

I had a sweet moment at church today.

It was the primary program - which I love. The last song that was sung was Families Can Be Together Forever - the congregation sang with the primary. I was sitting by Dan and Drew was playing around on the bench on the other side of me. Right when the song started, Drew snuggled right up to me as we started singing. It was such a perfect moment. My eyes filled with tears and I could barely make it through the rest of the verse.

It was so wonderful to think again about how blessed I am to have my forever family. I love reflecting on the day Dan and I took Drew to the temple to be sealed to us for eternity.

I'm so grateful for sweet moments like these!

Hiking Mount Pisgah

A week ago, Dan, Drew, and I hiked Mount Pisgah. We'd been told it's an easy hike. Well, let me just say that I'm not an avid hiker. The hiking I do is basically just walking, sometimes uphill a little. :) Mount Pisgah is definitely not just walking. It's all uphill. And hard. (For me, anyway.)

Poor Dan. I'm such a whiner. At one point, I said, "Can I please lay down and die?" :)

But, the view at the top was beautiful! Drew was a perfect angel. He was happy as can be in the carrier and had so much fun running around at the top.

On the way down, we took our time and ate the most delicious blackberries. They were so good! Totally made the hike worth it.
