West Coast Conference 2014

I know when people blog about conferences, a lot of the time they will say, "this was the best year yet!" I've probably done this. This was my third year in a row going to West Coast, but I can say without a doubt that this was the best year yet. From the preaching to the altar services, to the songs, fellowship, and fun - everything was absolutely outstanding. Really, I don't have the words to tell how each message moved me. I am so grateful I was able to attend WCC this year! 

I also would like to say a special thank-you to Cherie, Stephanie, Caleb, Jacob, and Kassia for the pictures I am posting today. I took only one pictures the entire WCC and it was of my face - showing Nicole at 4am how tired I was - hoping to get some sympathy while I was locked out of my room. (Don't worry, I won't post it :) 

So here goes...hopefully in chronological order! 

Bro. Wesley Jackson preached the first night
Tradition - Cheesecake Factory the first night!
The classic picture in front of the water fountain, except it was not running...

Bro. Townley - one of the day speakers

Giovanni wooing the crowds

Lunch at Panera

Cherie and Lindsey - my dear friends!

The minister's dinner on Thursday night - me, Cherie, Coco, Cara, Stephanie, Jen, Johnny, Andrew, Keith, Hanna, Mikey, and unnamed dude.
Quote of the night: "You just spit on my knuckle AND my bread!" (Cherie and Cara talking over Coco's plate - HAHA!) 

Starbucks on Friday morning...just we what all needed! 

Guess who's having a babyyyy!! Kassia! Yayyyy! :)) 

Friday night...the last service. It flew by so quickly! 

Coco so generously shared the caramel apple the candy people gave him. YUM! 

Counter clock-wise starting at me...Jacob, Andrew, Denae, Cherie, Cara, Johnny, and Keith. 

Cherie and I sharing a Pazookie

Breakfast Saturday morning...*yawn*...makes me sleepy just looking at us! 

Entertainment before leaving Saturday morning

I'd given Cherie a book of poetry - all of us girls just absolutely adore this writer. Austin and Bro. Bray got ahold of it though, and put a whole new spin on it! They weren't too impressed by it...BUT....

...Elder Frazier got ahold of it and gave his stamp of approval! Can't argue with the man of God! :) 

An elevator pic! 

Hilarious panorama pic

Saying goodbye to the soon-to-be-mommy :) 

WCC officially ended with one last lunch at Castillo's
