Hi Guys!!!

WE HAVE BEEN CRAZY BUSY HERE IN UTAH. I have missed not being able to get on line--finally got wireless working here at my mother-in-laws!!!

We didn't get here when we were supposed to--Allan ended up in the emergency room and we missed our morning flight. (Thank goodness all was well and we got out a little later that afternoon. Unfortunately, he missed a couple of meetings on Thursday) First stop, Brent's dorm. We had to pick up a couple of boxes. I also had brought a birthday present for his roommate (his mom is one of my good friends ; )

We had a great day on Friday--FINALLY got to see the Ogden temple













Friday night had dinner at my sister-in-laws--and then Allan, Heidi and her friend, Scott, went to see 21.















Then today we went to the morning session of conference--it was so wonderful. (Funny thing was when we were on the freeway heading to Salt Lake we passed up one of our friends from Winnipeg--isn't that a coincidence ; ) It was so great to be in the session together--even if we didn't get to sit together. After the session we met up with some friends from Toronto. It was so great to see them.













Watched the afternoon session with the kids--seems like it's been awhile since we've all been able to enjoy it together. While the men went to Priesthood, Heidi and I hit the mall. We had such fun.

Now we're off tomorrow to Arizona after the morning session. Brent is so excited to take us--we're going to have such a great time together. We love Arizona.

Wow! How cool you are in Utah! Not too far from me. That is great you were able to attend the morning session when Pres. Monson was sustained. BTW- I LOVE that skirt you are wearing in the photo at the conference center! Sounds like you are having a great time!

Jodi said...

I forgot to tell you that I love your new blog look!!! IT is great!

Very cool! You have been a very busy bee. :) How fun for you to experience so many things while you are in Utah.

Have fun... travel safe. :)

Love the new look to the blog!!

I'm glad Allan is okay and that you made it to Utah. You were in Ogden, which is only a few hours from me. Unfortunately (or fortunately... however you look at it) we try to stay away from the craziness that is SLC at Conference Time. We spent the day holed up in our basement watching Conference and enjoying the talks.

Enjoy the rest of your trip. This is a good time to go to AZ. It's hot, but not excruciatingly so.

Hey, that's cool you got to visit the Ogden Temple which is the one our Stake is assigned to.

How neat you were able to attend conference! Moving on to Arizona... I'm so jealous. I could use a few rays right now so soak one up for me, okay?

So very fun!! It sounds like you're having a wonderful trip :) Have a wonderful time in Arizona!
Are you and Nancy Face gonna party while you're there?

Ashley said...

My dad also got to go to the Saturday Morning Session of Conference. He had never seen it at the new Conference Center yet, he was thrilled to come home and tell us all about the "behind the scenes activities." I am glad you got to go too! The Ogden Temple is one I have not attended yet, which is strange since that is where my in-laws live. I am going to make that my goal the next time I visit there. Have fun in Arizona.

Jess said...

Sounds like you guys are having a great trip. Arizona will be so much fun. That is awesome. Wasn't conference amazing? I am so glad that you got to go what an awesome place to be. Enjoy your trip.
Your blog looks great by the way.

Good old Utah ;) I think someone really cool lives there....but I can't remember her name right now, ha ha!
That's so awesome that you got to be at the first conference with Pres. Monson!! I'm jealous!
One of my favorite things was going to the conference center and watching Pres. Hinckley walk out. I cried because it was so emotional!!!
I'm glad you had a fun time in Utah!!! :)

utmommy said...

Sounds like so much fun! Enjoy the warmth in Arizona. I wish I was there right now.

Cute blog. I'm thinking I need to redo mine soon:)
