General Conference

With General Conference coming up the boys are home alone. Jess and Ruth headed East to Minnesota and the Mall of America Saturday and will turn the sights south toward St. Louis probably sometime Tuesday. Jessica is having the pleasure of staying the week with someone in the church. The boys are getting the opportunity to see what it is like being bachelors. They get to try their best to make macaroni and cheese different ways and eat some good ol' hamburgers.

Jared and Jonathan got back from a youth trip to Medora on Saturday night after the Huskies beat Idaho (what a delight). We went to Medora on Friday night and set up camp.

This is the view of the hillThis is the view from the top of the hill. You can faintly see the truck and some of the youth.

They had to cross the Paddock River about eight times with a grand total of three people falling in, you had to jump across the river. After that we went up to Wind Canyon. This is a place where you can slide down these crevices which have sand in them, it was much fun. Then we drove to Dickinson got a bite to eat and headed home. Here are a few pics...
