Salt Lake City & Conference

We had the opportunity to go to General Conference this past weekend. We had a wonderful time! Originally we were going to drive up on Thursday and home on Sunday. As it turned out Chris was able to borrow the company's new plane and we flew to Salt Lake. We knew that Gary and Darlene and Garrett Perkins were also going up so we invited them to ride along. It only took 2 1/2 hours to fly, compared to 10 to drive - what a great trade off! We were able to attend the solemn assembly on Saturday morning in the conference center. It was a magnificent meeting and we felt very fortunate to attend that historic event. It was great seeing Kenny and Leslie and being able to visit - here is a picture story of the weekend!

Skippy wanted to actually get on the horse.

We didn't think they would appreciate that.

The group eating at PF Changs compliments
of Gary Perkins - thanks Gary!

Leslie gave us a little recital in preparation for her
big Junior recital this weekend. She is amazing!

We celebrated Kenny's birthday while we were there.
He said the outift might be a little small :)

We fulfilled Kenny's dream of going to this
authentic Spanish cuisine restaurant for his birthday.
The next picture shows the pretty food!

On our way into the conference center. We snagged a
total stranger to take the picture for us.

Kenny was a bit mad because you aren't supposed
to take pictures in the conference center - we figured
it was over - it wouldn't matter too much.

Boredom at Olive Garden waiting for a table
produces some strange pictures!

Ready for the short trip home. Notice the red
carpet at the door - boy they make you feel
like a big shot!
