One more week of summer down

Time is quickly running out on summer! I think we are finished with our travels though.

The kids got back on Monday from San Diego and we left of Tuesday to go east. Well, not to far. We spent Wednesday touring Temple Square, the Beehive house, and the conference center, and seeing Josesph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration, finishing with a late lunch at the Gardens on the 10th floor of the Joseph Smith building. I loved the view overlooking the temple. What a great day. The film was fabulous even the 2nd time.

Thursday and Friday were spent visiting with our friends who were visiting Utah from Virginia. We had such a great time catching up with them and seeing how the kids have grown. It is so fun to be able to pick up where we left off the last time we saw them. Even after 5 years, we still miss them. It is rare to find both husbands, wives, and children to get along with! Funny Kids playing in the pool.

Today we had a great sacrament meeting with a newly returned elder talking about testimonies. He talked about the difference between believing and knowing. When we believe we just go through the motions, but we have to pray to know. It was some great food for thought for the day.
Oh yeah, and I almost forgot about my new nephew Jaxon. He was born last saturday, and doing well. So is his mom Brooke. Also, we have been having fun with Luke and Dallin too. It will be fun to see them often, and watch them grow.
And do you remember all the time I had last weekend by myself? I will take some pictures, and show you what I do when I get time to do whatever I want....

Good Things

1. Knowing, not just believing

2. Catching up with friends from far away

3. one more nephew
