Elder Nicholas Dees w/Aunts and Uncle and first cousins in Declo, ID

Hey everyone, SURPRISE - I was in Declo for conference with the family since I’m serving in the Paul area! So Uncle Glade and his family were all there of course.  I saw Mark and his wife and kids, and Aunt Gretta and her man Mark came up and Jordan was there as well.  It was awesome and I actually paid attention to conference! Afterwards we went and had some fun climbing up to the “D” in Declo, it was way worse/steeper than the “Y” but it was worth every second and after that we went back and had some hot chocolate at Uncle Glade’s. I got to play on the jumping stilts and all other kinds of fun stuff.  I caught some more chickens (Uncle Glade has chickens) and just overall had a great time! This week was kinda tough for missionary work though just because of spring break and not a lot of people were home, but we still taught a lot of people. There is a place out here called Kiwi Loco which is a frozen yogurt place and it’s so good and its 50% off. Hopefully we will be going there today. I already spent $30 of my monthly money to buy a new camera charger.  Mine went MIA during transfers-maybe left in the van or something. )=  My resolution this month.... to save money, well there went that idea (=. Everything is going great here though! Here are some pictures from this weekend. Elder Barnes is the one on my shoulders.

Email conversation:
Elder Nicholas Dees:  hey im on, whats up?

Mom:  Why do I have mixed feelings about all this.  I guess I just don't want you to get to comfy and want you to do the work but at the same time I'm glad you have the chance to see Uncle Glade and family.  Thanks for sending some pictures.

Trying to save money would have been good. However it’s early in the month to already be spending big.  Hope members are going to feed you all.  It's kinda hard to feed 3 missionaries, financially anyway, for some people, so be moderate in what you eat unless they have plenty.  Be sensitive to people and their means.

Elder Nicholas Dees:  You have mixed feelings because you are like the rest of the moms on the G side, just calm down and breathe a little, it will help.

Mom:  hi son,

Need an address to mail something.  Do you have one for us today?  Ask your comps for the address.

Elder Nicholas Dees:  Below is my address:

Elder Nicholas Dees
1510 R Street
Heyburn, ID 83336

Dad knew it the whole time - he called the mission office.
