We had the BEST weekend ever!
My Mom and Dad were in town, and it was so good to see them and spend time together.
They got here on Wednesday and we enjoyed dinner together and just visited.
Of course, a quick trip the the creamery was in order for some amazing ice cream.
Then, they were off to Park City as part of their 30th anniversary trip
and we finished out the week of studies, work, etc.
On Friday, they went to the BYU/Utah State Game... Go Aggies!!
And Brad and I attended his mission reunion
where I was able to meet his mission president for the first time.
And at midnight, we all piled in the car to head to Park City.
On Saturday morning, we enjoyed breakfast all together and
then watched the first session of General Conference.
As soon as it was over, we left for Salt Lake,
where we would attend the second session in the Conference Center.
It was so good to attend conference together and have the day with family.
After the second session, we went to dinner.
Mom and Dad surprised us by treating us to dinner at The Roof,
an amazing restaurant that overlooks Temple Square.
And let me tell you, dinner was so yummy. It was such a fun atmosphere too.
We definitely weren't expecting such a neat surprise, but we were so grateful that
we were able to experience The Roof with my parents.
Thanks Mom and Dad!
Sorry for the bad photo... the sun was coming right in the window.
After dessert, we sent the boys off to Priesthood session,
and I got to enjoy two whole hours alone with my mom!!
It was the best time! We just enjoyed chatting and spending time together.
We went to Deseret Book and met a couple of our favorite authors and ran into lots of friends.
It was perfect.
Afterwards, we met up with our boys again and drove back to Park City.
The whole day was just right.
On Sunday, we drove back to Provo and enjoyed seeing the fall leaves through Provo Canyon.
We watched conference in our apartment and tried to soak in our last few hours together.
All of conference was amazing and faith promoting.
I am grateful for living prophets today who lead and guide us.
I am grateful for my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for providing a path back to Them.
I am grateful for eternal truths that keep me grounded in a changing world.
I am grateful for covenants that allow us to have eternal families.
It was sad sending my parents off to the airport, and I miss them terribly already,
but I am so glad that we had such a great weekend together!
Thanks Dad and Mom for a wonderful time!!
