Utah Trip - Part 5 - Misc.Pictures

This is the last post for our family trip to Utah. As you can tell, we had a lot of fun and took lots of pictures! Here are a few remaining pictures I wanted to blog; they are miscellaneous and random.
Here is some cabin fun with family! Aunt Marilyn, Rachel, Daniel and Mitchell. This was after Daniel's baptism when all of Sue's family congregated at the cabin for dinner and socializing together. Later that night, after everyone left, we got the cabin all to ourselves! We slept over and had a wonderful time enjoying the beauty of the mountains! We love it there!!!!
On Wednesday, July 29, we went to the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple Open House. We went with Brian's parents and some of his siblings. It was so beautiful!!! What an awesome experience to take our children through this holy and peaceful place, and be able to explain some of the special things in the temple.
After going through the temple, there was a big, beautiful "tent" set up for refreshments, gathering together, socializing and answering questions. This picture of Christ was absolutely breathtaking!
Here we all are leaving the temple to go to our cars. I don't know why, but I love these pictures taken from behind.
The day before we left to come back home, I took Rachel and Daniel to visit my maternal grandparents grave site. I used to visit this often when I lived in Salt Lake. It is a very beautiful and peaceful cemetary. I enjoyed sharing this with Rachel and Daniel.

I am so grateful for the wonderful trip we had, and all the family and friends we were able to reconnect with. We feel very blessed as a family to have two homes...our home in Utah where all our loved ones are and family and friends live, and our home in Clovis where our home is now, which we love so much, as well as all our friends who have become like family.
