Conference Weekend

 Every 6 months we have the privilege of listening to the LDS General Conference, this was our Conference weekend Fall 2013

 This is one of my all time favorite pictures. Brooks diaper with falling leaves stuck to it, and both kids faces showing the pure innocent joy of that moment. It was a Fall day that seemed to last forever. The sun was so bright, the leaves were so crisp-I hope I never forget the way my children looked on that day. Some days are too bright to forget. 

We attended the live Conference for the first time. My favorite quotes: 
 "Each day is a day of decision, and our decisions determine our destiny."
"Doubt your doubts, before you doubt your faith."
"The acorn of honest inquiry has often sprouted and matured into a great Oak of understanding." 

Boys Gold Mining

Lee had the opportunity to go with two of his brothers and Jackson to Quincy California to the Rich Bar gold mine, along the feather River during the last weekend in September.
Lee has always loved gold mining, and had visited this sight a few times prior having known the owner. Lee and his brothers were able to use a Sleuth Box to sift for Gold deposits along the river bottoms bedrock of the Feather River. They stayed at a little cabin, and enjoyed having a boys weekend. Jackson espcially enjoyed having a boys trip in Dad's new truck.

Jackson was exhausted from all of the hard work. He loved lifting up rocks and teasing the crawdads that were in the river. He spent his days digging in the dirt while the men worked. They didn't find as much Gold as they had wanted to but they found some, about 100.00 dollars worth. Lee had a great time with his brother's Pete and Ben, and was glad that the deer they hit on the way there caused minimal damage to his truck.
