We got tickets again for General Conference, so we decided to go down for a long weekend. We took the kids out of school at lunch on Thursday and then went and picked up Nathan from work. We had a good drive down and decided to stop at a store we had heard of, Scheel's. It was definitely more than we expected! A beautiful fish tank at the front of the store. (This was just one part of it.)
There was a HUGE Ferris wheel in the middle of the store that only cost $1 a ride. We all rode it. Benjamin was terrified but liked it after riding for awhile. Levi LOVED it the most. He wasn't scared one bit.
There were several places for "photo shots". Our kids loved these.
We all had so much fun, that we went again the next day with Jayna and her family and met Jon and his family there.
We came back to Provo and walked around at BYU. We walked through the Art Museum and found Big Foot.
We also walked to the skate park and played for a long time there. It was so fun for the cousins to play together!
Then, the real reason we went to Utah - General Conference. We had a wonderful experience! We love going to hear our Prophet and leaders remind us of ways we can become more like our Savior. We sat on the same row as the Marlowe's (our good friends from home). Nathan then stayed for the Priesthood session later that evening. He met Jon and Palmer and then rode the train back to Provo. While Nathan was at the Priesthood session, we had Carol (my first roommate from Ricks) and her sweet family come over. We ate pizza, walked to the park to play and then had Creamery ice cream and cookies. It was so fun to get together again!!
