What a great way to spend the day! Brandon and I took the kids to Grandma's house and went on a real date that night. It was a great day and it's been a great seven years!!

Weekend in Salt Lake City

We went up to SLC to visit Pops and Marcia it was a great weekend. They took us to the Church Family History building were they are currently serving their mission. We walked around Temple Square and a few other places it was a lot of fun. The kids loved the waterfalls!!
The temple grounds are so beautiful this time of year-any time really.

Once again in front of water- I'm surprised I didn't go home with wet kids:)
We had such a great weekend we spent Friday with my Dad and Marcia and then we went up to Kaysville to spent time with Brandon's Family. Brando's cousin was visiting from back east. Talmage and Laine and Sawyer had lots of fun with cousins and Aunts and Uncles and Grandparents-We found out their getting some new cousins on the Nelson side (Pretty exciting stuff) We had such a great time with family. We then went back down to SLC to go to church with my Dad and Marcia. It's pretty cool their ward is in the Joseph Smith memorial Building. They have a special missionary ward so pretty much every one is old and we were the only ones with kids it was crazy how noisy our kids sounded in Sacrament and they were being REALLY good! We had a pretty awesome weekend:)
