The snorkeling and Cabo San Lucas was pretty wonderful as well. The video is HERE
The time spent with my kids is even higher on the list of things I loved about our time away. Especially, our surprise for Chloee - watch it HERE
But the ultimate, ULTIMATE best thing about the weekend?
For those of you who are in our family, friends, or ward family circles, you have watched this kid grow up. You've seen the challenges, rocky roads, and side adventures that our son has encountered and in turn our family grew through together. You know what a big deal this is. It's more than anything I could have dreamed for my son as recently as a year ago. To see what his life choices are now, his priorities, his strength and his faith are, quite frankly, humbling. To see him recognize his divine potential and then act by doing things to constantly make him a better husband, father and man is inspiring. I had to text him the other night and simply ask "when did you get so smart?"
He had the opportunity to be ordained a couple of weeks ago, but waited until we could be there and his father could perform the ordinance. There were many tears of happiness, gratitude and pride (yes, I said it) shed.
Sometimes words aren't enough to describe one's feelings, and this is one of those times. For many, it doesn't mean much at all, and that's okay. I know and respect that not everyone is of the same religion and faith, but hope you can understand at least the happiness that comes from seeing your child be happy. That's really it. To see my Corbin SO HAPPY. There with his little family, by themselves in SoCal, they are finding their way to what they want for themselves and what Momma couldn't be happy and proud of that?
Congrats Corb - I L Y P I
ps - can't wait for June 2012...........
Additional side note - he gave me this awesome shirt from the Wounded Warrior Project
