More Fun

Here are a few more pictures from out trip to Oregon. On Tuesday we took family pictures on the beach. Here are my wonderful parents who next month will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary!
The water was freezing, but I had to try and get in. I could only stand it up to my knees! The kids thought it was great and loved to be in the water.
Here are all the kids outside one of the lighthouses that we toured.

The scenery was so pretty. This is picture by another lighthouse. We actually had go on a little hike to get to it.

There are so many chances to see sea lions. This was taken near some sea lion caves. We had so much fun, I would love to go back!

I was able to spend this past week with my family in Lincoln City, Oregon. It was really beautiful and the weather was really good. We even had sun for one day with only one day of a little rain. It was so wonderful to be together.


I don't know about everyone else, but I have a hard time making decisions. I go over things in my mind so many times and it can get to that point where I just fill this weight on my shoulders because of it. For the past couple of months I have been praying about something and have just felt I wasn't getting an answer.

I had heard a talk in church a couple of weeks ago about being willing to submit your will with the Lord's will, and that is something that I have really tried to focus on, and wouldn't you know it the answer I got wasn't what I wanted! Apparently the Lord has something else in mind for me. I do know that the Lord knows best and that I only need the faith to move forward. The topics in church today reminded me just how thankful I am for revelation that I know Heavenly Father loves me and wants what is best for me even though I wanted something different.
