 We had the opportunity this summer to go on a Pioneer Trek and be a ma and pa to some of the most amazing youth.  We also got to experience this wonderful week with two of our kids.  Em and Ty went along too.  They were in different families but we still got to experience this amazing spiritual experience together.  Just wish Hay could have been with us.  I didn't have my camera for a lot of the week but did take a few pics.  Ty was chosen to be the young man that carried girls across the river to reinact the valley boys helping the pioneers.  He did a great job...and it wasn't easy.  I had someone else's camera that day so I don't have any pictures of it.  D gave an amazing talk about the atonement and specifically talked about Wyatt...needless to say many tears were shed.  The spirit was so strong.  So grateful for spiritual experiences that continue to strengthen our testimonies.  So grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ and all he has done for each and everyone of us.  So grateful for the hope he gives.  It was a hard and tiring week but worth all the effort.  So grateful we got to go. 
 The group of girls in our van on the ride there....long, long drive!!
 Our totally amazing trek family!
 Setting up camp..which we did almost everyday. 
 Treking with our handcart.

The entrance to Martin's Cove.  This is a special place for me.  I had an incredible experience here many years before.  Something I will never forget!  While treking at Martins cove there were sooooo many butterflies.  I had so many Wyatt moments that week.  So grateful for those tender mercies.

I wish I would have gotten Ty and Em together for a picture.  He was always off with his family or friends.  Em stayed close to me so that is why I have many more pictures of her.
