State of Jefferson and Women's Conference

We headed south for the weekend to visit family.
While there JC and my dad worked on our infamous car, I went on a 24 mile run with Hulk, Zoo, Dad, and Gideon and then mom and I went to Women's Conference.
It was a good trip.

To get to the backside of the engine they had to remove some shielding, exhaust manifold, and detach part of the exhaust pipe. All for a freeze plug. Lesson learned: always have a good 50/50 mix of coolant in your radiator.
It took them 4.5 hours. Part way through it started raining so they rigged a plastic canopy to stay dry.

On Saturday, we went for long run around Lithia Loop. Boo and I took turns pushing Hulk in the stroller while Dad pushed Gideon. It was good run with a lot of elevation gain. I was feeling really excited and prepared for the 50K I am going to run in May - not any more. I have a lot more training I need to do and not a lot of time.

Women's Conference was very uplifting. The most popular quote is from Pres. Henry B. Eyring, "You are more alike, as daughters of God, than you are different." 
I felt that the conference emphasized recognizing we are all children of God and that we are all struggling along the same path. Instead of judging others and recognizing how others differ from ourselves, we should uplift and help each other in our common goal: to return to our Heavenly Father. The importance of temples was also mentioned several times.
I can't wait for General Conference this weekend! It's my favorite time of the year. I always feel spiritually buoyed and enjoy spending the next six months studying their written talks.

Hulk's new favorite toy is his walker. He cries when it gets stuck in a position and he can't use it. While I was in class today, JC had him walking around our living room for an hour.

Graduated to pushing the stroller
