the first sakura blooms are here. this was taken yesterday, when the blue skies begged for sakura photos, but just a few buds had 'popped'. today there are more blooms, but not so blue skies. i will keep taking photos as the weather obliges me. the weather is so fickle this time of year. it is as if it is saying, 'i'll give you the beauty of sakura for a few weeks, but only a few days of brilliant weather to truly enjoy it.' we'll take what we can get with gratitude.
brock drove lexi and tashi and other youth in our ward the 3 hours to youth conference this morning, and is spending the day there with them. what a dad!
