If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Family Camp- The Best Week of the Year

Ahh Family Camp.  It really is the best week of our year.  Every year.  Nothing else even competes.  Trent and I get great time together to talk about our marriage and our kids, the kids are entertained and poured into by the coolest college students in the country, and we have a blast together.  This year we had an incredible speaker in Tim Kimmel and I walked away with several books on the reading list.

Now for the grandparents (because I know it is boring to look at other people's vacation pics unless they are your grandkids), here are some pictures from our week.

Night At The Zoo

Our Zoo hosts a night every year for the kids who are patients at Shriners Hospital.  The families are given free admission to the zoo with lots of hands on experiences.  It really is an amazing night and we make it a point to go every time we get an invitation.  Once again the kids had a blast.  Here are a few pics from our evening.
