On February 9th we flew from Oakland to Salt Lake City and had some wonderful visits with family and friends. We visited with Aunt Pat and Meredith in Salt Lake, then drove down to Orem for a visit with Aunt Lois, and then on to Kimberly's home. We had dinner at Olive Garden with several of our friends we knew from our last mission as shown in the picture below, Katlin and Murl Eggbert, President and Sister Warthen, David and Ann Eggbert, and Antonio and Elis Nunes.
On Saturday we did some last minute shopping and had a nice home visit with Elder Joseph Andrew and his wife Lara, who were just recently married. They joined us and Kimberly's and Stella's families for dinner at Cafe Rio. We attended a temple session in Portuguese at the Timpanogos Temple that evening.
On Sunday we attended church with Kimberly's family and then went to the Provo City Cemetery to visit Canyon's grave site.
Kimberly made a wonderful dinner at her home for our family and friends, including the families of Kimberly, Kirk, and Stella, as well as Ed and Fay, Chris Dixon, and the Nunes. Kimberly fixed tuna roll-ups and tomato soup, and grilled cheese sandwiches. We had a great time visiting with everyone.
Monday morning we checked into the MTC.
We are having a wonderful time at the MTC and enjoying being able to share some meals with our granddaughter, Megan, who is at the MTC preparing for the Chicago Spanish speaking mission.
