Eight of us traveled together to Salt Lake City on Friday afternoon. I went with three of my friends that live in my ward: Kristin Wayment, Sue Ellen Warmouth, and Christina Johnson. We went to dinner at the Old Spagetti Factory at Trolley Square and then went to our hotel.
The four girls (daughters) who went with us; Emma (18), Lily(10), Rebecca (10), and Jenness (16). This picture was taken just as we were leaving the hotel to take the 2 older girls to the Salt Palace for the Comic Convention.
We shopped for hours at IKEA and ate lunch. I thought this bed was cute, and would have it for my grandkids, if I had lots of money, and Katie's bedroom was empty. It sure is fun shopping with friends and getting ideas from them.
Sue Ellen has painful knee problems, so we waited at the Conference Center while the other 6 went to park the car. It took a really long time and they had a really hard time trying to find a place to park. In no time at all, I had secured the 8 tickets we needed to get into the Conference Center. The host by the corner coached me, He said just stand here and hold up how my fingers you need tickets for and it worked. Then we waited in the sun in 90 degrees for the others to arrive.
The Conference was inspiring and I'm so thankful and happy I was able to be there. All 21,000 seats in the Conference Center were filled.
President Uchtdorf gave a wonderful talk. I can hardly wait to reread it and study it.
It's already been published. I hope you will take time to read it. The story is about a girl named Ava.
And then when I got home at 1am Sunday morning, this box was sitting in my entry. Unbelievable again! Mark bought a huge gun safe, 59 inches tall to put in our bedroom. And then when I went in our bedroom, he had moved my full length mirror behind our door and put the stupid safe there! grrrrrrrr.
