Since Kyler became an LDS Bishop almost 3 years ago (next month! nuts!) we have enjoyed getting out of town for General Conference weekend! A Bishop is like a priest or preacher, but on a volunteer basis and is done on top of their full time job, so it gets a little crazy at times and we don’t get a lot of time as a nuclear family during the week. These staycations are a great way to slow down and reconnect with each other again. It always feels so nice to get a break from the craziness of the world, spend some good time together as a nuclear family as well as getting to hear from the leaders of our church. It’s always a wonderful time that we each look forward to! This time we stayed at an AirBnb in Manti. I bought the kids some dollar butterfly nets and they had so much fun running around trying to catch some butterflies ha ha We explored the temple grounds when not watching conference and it tired the kids right out!
Manti was beautiful. We like to go to places within an hour or so of our home so we don’t have to drive too far but can still feel like we’re “away.” It’s so nice being out in the country for a weekend and breathing in that fresh air and enjoying the slower pace there. We’re already looking forward to the next one in October!
