Earlier this month our dear friends
Each year, they spend time with us here in Utah as we celebrate the 4th of July.
They make the long drive with their 4 children, bikes, toys, swimming suits,
and suitcases full of clothes through the
Arizona desert to our little home here in Provo.
It's a tradition, and we joke that our families together make the Joneseons
(Jones + Nielsons= Jonesons).
Just as much as we love our children to be together doing fun things,
we- the adults, need this unique time together too.
We talk about everything, and we laugh a whole lot too.
But we also testify to each other of the Savior and peace the gospel brings.
We talk about how our marriages are strengthened through Christ.
Mr. Nielson and I don't have a lot of friends,
Usually, we spend our weekends just together or with the Little Nies,
but the occasional times we hang out with friends, they are usually friends
who we feel comfortable talking and expressing our love and dedication,
for family values and morals.
I hope everyone has friends like this.
