The yearly stake BBQ!!

One of my favorite times to go to Tucson is in October for the stake BBQ. It is absolutely wonderful. My dad does the meat, of course, and the stake gathers together at the church ballpark to party hard. Not only is the meat great, but the desserts are just as good. As soon as we eat, we always hit the dessert table on our way back to get all the good ones! The ballpark has changed into a very nice gathering spot, with lots of tables, green grass and a sandpit. There were about 1,500+ people there. My dad cooked roughly 1,000 lbs. of pork and beef, and three huge pots of beans. It was a feast.

After the BBQ, Matt, my mom and I went to the UofA football game. That was great fun too. We stayed for the first half, and watched the second half from home. Wish we would have stayed for the whole game! Bear down Cats, it was awesome to see them play well and pull out the big W!

It was so nice to go to Tucson to see my wonderful family. You never really realize how wonderful it is to have a great family until you are away from them. I love my family to death. I especially love my mom and dad, my sisters too. It is a double plus to have such great sister-in-laws also. I never realized how blessed I would have been to have great sisters-in-law and to be married to a wonderful man with sisters. Even though they are my sisters, it doesn't replace the homesickness I feel for my family and sisters.
Glad we went home for the weekend!!
