Trekking is awesome!

Last month Josh and I had the opportunity to go on a family trek. I have to admit that I wasn't too excited to go. It was like high school all over again, because we had a youth trek when I was a junior and it was the last thing I wanted to do over summer vacation. It turned out to be such a wonderful experience. 7 years later here I am again. I didn't want to leave my baby, I didn't want to camp in the dust and wind, and I didn't want to walk 25 miles. Once again I was humbled and had an awesome experience. It was not only a testimony builder, but we got to know people in our ward a lot better. Enjoy the pictures!

Josh and I in our garb, and our house for the next 3 days.

Our AWESOME trek leader. He did an amazing job. Good job, Brother G!

The men leaving the women for the women's pull. This is always such a spiritual experience. It was a lot harder than I remembered it being 7 years ago!

Josh being big Buddah. He was pretty excited!

That night during the fireworks... She is not a very cuddly person but that night she was, and it was a great end to a great day.
