Weekend in Zion

Well this last weekend I went with Teresa and Dave to Zions National Park and yes I hiked... ok you can pick up your jaws, stand up from the floor, and reread what I just wrote!! :) ha ha ha it was SOOOO much fun! I did 4 different hikes down there (ok well 3 1/2 Angels Landing almost killed me) but it was so enjoyable!! If I can remember how to post pics on here I will post some of us down there. We left on Thursday evening and camped for 3 nights leaving Sunday at 7:48am, why? Because I was in charge of the Linger Longer that afternoon at church. The Linger Longer went off without a visit from the SLC Fire Department this time so I am checking it off as a success! ha ha ha ha

While in Zions the first night we almost froze to death, if it was not for Teresa snuggling with me I fear we would have! :) Friday morning we got up, had breakfast and filled our Camelbaks and started to head out. I (being myself) did not twist the top on correctly which cause the water to spill ALL OVER my back... Dave fixed this for me and I started to dry off till I put it on again. The top was tightened but the bottom of the bag was not secured, which meant that all day the bag leaked water all over my lower back and bottom. Dave carried the pack for me on our first 'hike' (more of a nature walk) but on the second hike that day I took the pack and by the end of the day I was soaked. ha ha ha Dave figured out what was wrong the next day and fixed it for me. Saturday we started with Angels Landing and I got half way through that and then I went off in my own and did some hikes by myself. (without the rest of my group that is, I was with other people) But it was so nice to have these beautiful sites to enjoy and just have my own time to contemplate life and everything happening. It was so much fun! Each night Dave and Teresa lead us in making some amazing meals. Then we would sit around the fire and try and be fun and talk but we all fell asleep! Ha ha ha ha we are getting old!! :) There is nothing better than having great friends and family to spend time with. :)

The hunt for a job is still on... gotta love these times!! But I will say this, prayers are heard and blessing received for doing what you are asked to do. I am a living witness of this! These have been some rough times but at the same time I have strengthened my testimony in so many ways. The church is true, I love you, and we are each a child of God.... :)
