A much needed break

With all of the craziness with the house we decided that the boys needed a break. John was going to SLC for a conference and so I gave keys to those who needed them and we took off Wednesday night and I didn't make a single call about the house for two whole days. It was wonderful. We started out by driving down to BYU on Thursday while John was in meetings and met up with our good friends Chad, Sarah, and their two darling kids. It was nice and so fun to be on campus again. Caleb was cracking people up who could hear us talking because he said, "look Mom even the girls have pack packs and boys have pack packs too." I asked him what was in their bags and he very matter of fact said, "show and tell." I bet my GPA would have been much better had that been the case.

John got out of meeting at 1:00 and we went and picked him up and took the train from Sandy to Temple Square. It was so fun for Caleb and we had a good time walking around temple square. We also made it through the first 20 mins of the Joseph Smith movie and are excited to see the second half another time. As we were walking around temple square we saw a bride and Caleb called her a princess. I told him that's why we get married in them temple for eternity so that we can be with our princess forever and he said, "But Mom, I don't want to be a princess!"

Friday the kids and I went to surprise my good friend Rachel because it was her birthday but sadly she was out. We got to spend the afternoon with our good friends Tyece, Max, and Lucy though. It was such a good trip and we have so many good friends up north and only wished we had more time to visit them all. Lucky for us they will probably be having these meetings 4 times a year!

Yesterday it was back to work on the house. It was a good and productive day but we still have a long way to go. I will be Thankful when its all over!
