Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Family vacation to Utah

So we recently went to Park City Utah for a much needed family vacation.  I am sure some of you either heard or have seen some pictures from Facebook or Google+ or something! :)
But I thought I would do a blog post anyways.  I hardly took any pictures, but my dad got some pics and we also got a GoPro while we were there and got some videos and photos from there also.
So we had an amazing week, #1 just hanging out as a family with no distraction,  #2 touring around and going on adventures and #3 hanging out with absolutely nothing to do!
Like I said it was a much needed break, we had been so busy that we had had little family time and rest time.  My parents keeping busy with two businesses, I am sure you can imagine/know how that could go and then I am trying to do those two small business that I posted earlier and that has kept me busy.  Along with soccer and other things.
So yeah much needed...
 
 
So here is a picture from the drive up.  Park City is a BEAUTIFUL place!  The leaves were changing colors and well it actually felt like fall!
 
This was outside our resort, the place was awesome with so many activities.  There was a pool and a hot tube which we went in everyday (except the first because there was a thunderstorm)
 
 
There was also a park behind our resort with Zip lines, coasters, and slides.  We went back there two times that week.  It was so much, everyone enjoyed everything, but the two favorites were the coaster and slide!  The coaster was my personal favorite!

 
This is us riding up to the slide...

 
Yeah it was beautiful!

 
So one highlight is we went over to Salt Lake and visited the Mormon Temple (and saw the Giver!)
This was fun and interesting, and some would say somewhat boring.  But it was a good experience.  We walked around and saw a lot of the stuff they had there and read some of their beliefs.  We were confused on a few things, but we were able to talk to an older women there and ask her some questions.  It was a good conversation, though hard to see how off they are and how strongly they believe. 
The next few photos are of or around the Mormon Temple and I did have my camera for some of these: 


 
 








 
We went on bike rides, watched lots of movies, toured around, went water rafting, visited the Olympic Park, and played games!  Just a few things we did! :)
