Wonderful Whirlwind of a Weekend!

My weekend actually started at lunch on Friday but I forgot to take a picture!!  My dad took the 3 female "Valentines" in his life to lunch at Market Street Grill which is an annual tradition...

Friday evening I went with one of my favorite people to Time Out For Women in Layton.  Karen and I enjoyed amazing presenters--Tim Ballard and Barbara Thompson...

...and the musical group "Gentry" blew my socks off!  Especially when they sang a medley from "Les Mis."

Due to it being a women's event and the usual bathroom issue, most of the men's rooms were transformed into women's rooms :)

The Saturday program was just as great and it was fun to see my cousin Eric and Mary Ellen Edmunds from Cedar City--a close friend of our moms.

Besides Eric and Mary Ellen, additional presenters included Lisa Valentine Clark, Wendy Ulrich, Emily Freeman and music by Calee Reed.  Great day!

Sunday was definitely not a day of rest as I had a 7:00 am stake meeting, attended my parent's stake conference in Sandy, attended my own church and then one more evening meeting until 8:30 pm.

My dad was released after serving 9 years as 1st Counselor in the Sandy Lone Peak Stake.  At 82, he was the oldest stake presidency counselor serving in the church.  All of our family members living in Utah were able to attend and support him on this memorable day.

Had to grab a quick family pic while we were in the same location in Sunday best!

My last meeting of the evening was our ward Primary's "Great To Be 8" program for the nine Primary children getting baptized this year.  What a fun event!  I was so tired after the long day that I was in bed and asleep by 9:30 pm!
