For the first time since all siblings have been married we had a GIRLS NIGHT!! Every girl in our family made it except Megan. We really missed her! We all met at my house in Logan Friday jumped in the car and went to Time Out For Women together. The first night of TOFW was fun, but talking and laughing all night was the best part.  We stayed up all night talking until we fell asleep wherever we were. My house was packed but we all just squished together and made it work with mattress pads, couches, and cots.
Thank you Lori for making the awesome survival kits. I'm sad I didn't get a picture of one but they were super fun!

The morning came way too quickly. :) When Aaron Geary knocked on the door to help Celeste into her wheelchair this was all of us still sound asleep. I was sleeping where the pink blanket is. Melissa Jane is sleeping on the couch, Mindi and I were in the middle of the floor, Melinda Ho Ching is on the recliner at the bottom of the picture, and Lori Fano is the blue blanket on the bottom right.
Zoetta and Celeste were in my bed, Melinda, and Mom were on cots, Melissa Kay was on the floor like Mindi and I in a bedroom and Saedi was on the bottom bunk bed. :)

The second day was so uplifting and motivating. I loved the story shared of the Woman who adopted a little baby and then the biological parents changed their mind and took the baby back. Her message was that Heavenly Father knows us and knows what trials we are facing. If we trust in Him he will help our trials become strengths in our lives.
We went out for lunch to Olive Garden. It was so fun but we were in such a hurry. Next girls trip we are going to plan nothing so we can sit and laugh our heads off together for hours!

One of my favorite things from TOFW was the story shared of the girl who backed her car out of the driveway into their other car. Her dad's reaction was to love her. The impact of her dad's reaction taught her so much more. I hope to be a mom like that. I want to be able to see the teaching moments with my kids for what they truly are.
I am so lucky to be a part of these girls!! I love my mom and sisters so much! I love how they all have so much to give with their different experiences. I have learned and gained so much from all of them. Thank you for sharing this special time with me. I hope we do it lots more because I have lots more to learn from all of you!
