General Conference, playing at the park and enjoying the outdoors!

Well, general conference is such a different experience when it is shared with Jack. Jack was very enthralled by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, when they sang his eyes were wide and his whole countenance quiet. Yes, I appreciated the many songs. But jack was not quiet as entertained with the speakers so needles to say Ben and I didn't really listen to a whole talk. Although I don't remember any talks I do remember feeling the spirit. I know that God lives and has called his new prophet President Monson. I know President Monson speaks the words of God. Wow. I am so blessed to know this!
I was reading a talk given by Susan Tanner from conference and this part captured my attention,

I take great delight in my role as a nurturer, which allows me to express my deepest identity as a woman. I never fail to be struck by the way that women, young women, and even little girls seem to have an instinctive interest and ability in nurturing. It is not only a mother’s primary responsibility but also part of our “individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.”

I, too love being a mother and strive to enhance my responsibilities as a nurturer.

Over conference weekend Ben and I took Jack to several parks, he is really starting to love playing on slides and swings.

Here are some pictures I took while we were out and about.

After conference Ben and Jack put up our two man tent because Ben has "backpacking" fever. Sigh, I sure love them. Note Jacks static hair.

What cute pictures! Yes, Conference is never the same after kids but thank goodness for the Ensign and talks online. Happy Birthday to Ben, too!

Ah yes, the joys of Conference with kids. We ended up TiVoing it and watching half of it after the kids were in bed. Sam also loved MoTab though! He would start dancing every time they sang and waving his arms like he was conducting! He also loves slides.

That is so cute! I have got to try taking Miley down a slide. The only slide we have been too is the slide at her grandparents house, and it is a really bumpy one. So I didn't try it. But she loves swinging! That is such a cute picture of them in the tent!
