Conference in Springdale!


I know that I am way behind - so here is my first attempt at catching up! We went to visit my Dickman grandparents in Springdale, UT for general conference weekend. They have a ranch - Grandview Ranch - right at the mouth of Zions National Park and have been there for 40+ years. It was so beautiful! Zions canyon is amazing! It was so fun to visit their home - I think that I appreciate it so much more as an adult. It was fun to notice and photograph the little things that make the ranch what it is and give it so much character. My grandparents have created this incredible legacy of love with their lifetime of service. It was so touching to watch them go to so much effort during our stay - always waiting on us and offering us anything and everything they had. I love them and am so grateful to have them in my life...
Cole and Bella had so much fun. They wanted to be riding in the golf cart or on the four wheeler every minute we were there. They loved the cows too. Cole was so mad that he couldn't touch them. (Gross!) I am so happy that they got to experience the ranch like I did as a child. Sweet memories made...
And how can I not mention Conference and the incredible spiritual feast that it was? I am refreshed, renewed and inspired to be better! I am so grateful for those special words and the amazing spirit that accompanies every single speaker...
