3 Cheers for Grandma and Grandpa!



What a fun weekend we had with Grandma and Grandpa Jolley! They came to visit on Saturday night and stayed until Tuesday. On Sunday, they got to come with us to our Stake Conference where Elder Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles was there! I was especially excited to hear from him after he gave my favorite conference talk about motherhood. He is truly an apostle of God and we were so blessed to partake of his spirit. On Monday, Joseph was Grandpa's little helper as he fixed our gate in the backyard and planted tomato seeds. Thanks, Grandpa! Then, we rode the water taxi across the bay to have lunch downtown with Darren. Then we checked out Pike Place Market. We barbequed hamburgers for dinner and made smores over the coals for dessert.
Of course, Joseph is in love with his grandparents, but it was especially fun to see how much Justin loves them too! Thanks for the great visit, we love you!

Yea, I'm pretty jealous about that too. Both your kids just look too big! And Justin is really looking like you so much to me.

Ya know, I don't really like s'mores, but I tried one last night and instead of putting chocolate on it I did peanut butter m&ms, and it wasn't that bad.

Love you guys!

I want to go read that article now about Motherhood. I don't remember it but it was sure great to be there for Stake Conference.

Have you ever tried s'mores with peanut butter cups? It's a heavenly experience you should try it.
