Trip to Utah

I went out to lunch with some of my friends from Timpview High. We try to get together when I come to Utah.

We went up to the Cemetery where my dad is buried

We had a Welcome Home Party for my parents at my brother's Restaurant. There were so many people that came. Unfortunately I was so busy that I didn't take any pictures of anybody. It was a lot of fun seeing everyone that came. The food was delicious too. I'm glad I got to be a part of it!

There is ice skating across from the Restaurant at the park. The kids loved it.

My parents gave an excellent report. My mom didn't use any notes. We were all impressed. She had a perfect recollection. Even Elder Dallin H. Oaks was shocked that she didn't use note cards. It was neat having so much family in the congregation. After the meeting, there was a crowd waiting to shake Elder Oaks' hand. It was crazy!

We went to visit my brother David and his family. I installed a sticker on the back of Jamie's car that matches her snowboard. She loves to snowboard. It was fun seeing them again. We also got to go to the county jail where my brother works. He took us on tour and introduced us to his deputies. It was cool to see, but I would never want to live there!!!

We went to BYU and got some stuff for Jason and the kids.

I visited with Tiffany Coon, who use to be my neighbor in Missouri. They moved to Utah a couple of years ago and we try and visit them when we head out there. It was fun to catch up! Her baby, Beckam, is such a cutie.

I loved looking out the window during this flight. The mountains are beautiful and the sheets of clouds are awesome. I had a great trip, but I am glad to be home.
