the weekend

we had a very busy but really nice weekend at the RS retreat and the barn was nonstop right after work on Friday~i think we kinda over did it because yesterday we both felt sick. but were able to relax some after meetings.

friday we headed to seneca lake for the rs retreat. we are lucky in the stake to be able to hold overnight activities at this amazing camp overlooking the lake.

it rained most of the weekend except for the afternoon we were leaving. the leaves were beautiful. chris came to help out in the kitchen as well as be the priesthood for the was a lot more work than he had expected. I was grateful for the fabulous food!
here are the cabins we stayed in..they are really nice but bunkbed style so everyone is really in one room...i got zero sleep friday night between the babies, the snorers and the sleep walkers who at 3:00am began shouting about where her purse was and then left with the screen door slamming behind her. strange!
i did however throughly enjoy getting to know the sisters from other wards since i do not know too many people if they are not involved in YW. I also really, really enjoyed the speakers and learned a lot about women in the scriptures and "self care" from a therapist.
i played games, sat by the fire, ate food i did not have to cook and stayed up way too late laughing...poor chris worked the whole time!
there were quilts to tie, scarves and hats to crochet and other small service projects to complete.....i love this picture with our stake president singing karaoke with the other sisters. Fun memories.

Then Saturday was our 3rd annual...
it was out of control this year with games and contests. our dj does a fabulous job getting the youth to interact and enjoy being together!
