This last weekend was, to say the very least, a blast. We first picked up Debbie's parents on Thursday night from the SLC Airport and then treated them to dinner at Red Robin. Because it was Roger's 110th birthday (or something like that) we got a huge chocolate ice cream-cake to split. Thanks for having birthdays when you're in town, Roger!
On Friday we spent the day in Salt Lake visiting Aunt Gwen and Uncle Gene and other family. We visited Randy's Great Harvest store and got cinnamon burst bread. My mind explodes with happiness with each bite I take. Roger had finished his book, "Letters to Grandma", before coming out and wanted to have book signing parties with all of his relatives before he gave them the book.
On Saturday we drove to Dayton, Idaho to stay with Aunt Kathy and Uncle Reed and their family. It was extremely fun for me to get to know everyone. Caroly was in heaven because Aunt Kathy bought a pony and a carriage that you can ride in while it pulls you along. I think she was maybe more excited about the pony than the people.
We played games, ate great food, smelled the poopy cows from just up the road, listened to Aunt Diana's crazy stories and went to church. On the way home we stopped at the Logan temple and posed for pictures in admiration.
And then it was Monday morning. We started things off nicely with a breakfast of squash and eggs.
And then it was off to the MTC with 65 tons of luggage!
Debbie should be a model for the Sister Missionary Mall in Utah.
And here I am telling those missionaries to get off my property.
Debbie and I show how close Romania is to Hungary.
Elder and Sister Thompson showing how excited they are for Hungary.
They will be in the MTC for one week, we will have another weekend with them, and then it's off to Hungary!
