First family camp outing

Okay, so this camp was absolutely awesome! We camped at Camp Zion that is on Mt. Lemon in Tucson Arizona. It was over 9,000 ft in the air! This camp is church owned and absolutely amazing! We stayed over Friday night and had a wonderful devotional that night on Priesthood. Bishop did such a great job and I felt the spirit so strongly. Saturday morning we went on a basic mile hike! We had no idea that we were doing a hike so we didn't bring Emmy's Ergo baby carrier with us. So Tyson and I each took a shift of holding her throughout the hike!! She did awesome and slept through at least half the hike. This was out first camping trip of the year and Emmy's first EVER!! She is such a good little baby! She slept normal as she does at home. We did decide that she might have allergies because she was sneezing up a storm! (She gets the allergies from her dad). Hopefully we can get her tested for them and find out soon! Other than that she was awesome and everyone in our ward just loved her to pieces!

This was our huge tent that our ward clerk let us borrow!
It was too big to fit on the platform we chose. Later we saw that there were bigger ones we could have set up on! The platforms were great! Your tent didn't get dirty and less crawly creatures could get us!

Okay so the camp had a  basketball court, sand volleyball, kickball and tetherball!!
 This is one of the extra buildings with bathrooms and covered sitting area.^^
 ^^This was the main building where people would sleep inside if they wanted. This is also where we did devotional and they have food serving room inside.
 Sand volleyball!! ^^
This is the amphitheater!

Now onto the hiking pictures!

 Our bishop is awesome! He went up this crazy huge tree while wearing his sweet Ray-bans!
Someone woke up during the hike a little upset ^^
 We loved Camp Zion! Now if only I could go with the girls camp again in a few months! ;)

You guys... We moved to UTAH!

After much prayer and thinking, we finally decided to start looking into other job opportunities for Tyson. I knew he would be amazing wherever he went and I have always told him I would follow him to the edge of the world, but it was time to be closer to family and closer to each other. We are hoping that this change will only grow our relationships around us and ours most importantly!

It's always bittersweet to move and for change. We miss our Arizonian family very much and can't wait to see them again. We have been blessed with good people and the wonderful church wherever we go and will be forever grateful for that.

Tyson has accepted a new job in Utah working as a Superintendent. He's the and will do such an amazing job! I am so proud of him! He is hard working and it has truly paid off. We are now in the search of our next home while we sell and say goodbye to our Arizona home.

There is no way we would have made it to where we a…


I love a good hack. I mean, who doesn't? Whether it be for laundry, cooking, school, websites, you name it, I am all for it!

I am going to give you a run down of my top favorite hacks that I have used and found to be legit and actually work. In no certain order and the most random compilation you will find. They are just my favorites that I've found.

So here are my TOP 10 favorite hacks:

1. Trouble Falling Asleep? Try the 4-7-8 technique. 4 second in-hale, 7 second hold, 8 second exhale, and REPEAT.

You guys!!! This seriously works for me. When all else has failed, like my usual herbal tea and Magnesium supplement, I will do this and it WORKS!

2. Tuesday's at 3PM, 6 weeks prior to your flight is when plane tickets are cheapest.

Now I can say that this one is USUALLY the case. It has worked 95% of the time for me.

3. You can add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup oil to any cake mix to make it into cookie dough!

LOVE LOVE THIS ONE. Especially with Funfetti Cake mix. YUM!

4. Peroxide will…
