visiting the 801

Brennan, Ivy, Anita (our friend) and I went up to Utah for our best friends wedding, we had a great time. We drove up Thursday, Friday we got to do a lot of site seeing. Anita had never been past Ceder city so we took her to temple square. We had sooo much fun! Ivy loved the Christus...well we all did but Ivy was amazed by it! At home and at church I always ask her where Jesus is and she will walk over and point to his picture, its so cool! So I'm sure seeing this 11 foot statue of Christ was soooo awesome to her! She wouldnt leave the statue, I'd walk over to get her and she'd walk right back, so after a few attempts I let her be. It seemed that everyone there enjoyed seeing her pointing at it and saying, "Jesus, Jesus!"

After we left Salt Lake we went to the Mayan for dinner. I had been there before and I wanted Anita to see it. They have cool clif divers and its a fun atmosphere...Ivy was a little scared though. After dinner we took some fun pictures and then it started POURING!!!!!! Like CRAZY!
Later Friday night we went to Provo to see our friend Dave!!! It had been over two years so it was great to see him!!! We watched StarTrek at the dollar theater.

Ivy was AMAZING the whole trip, she was silent in the car! I'm so lucky to have such a great traveler! Brennan kept her entertained with her MANY bracelets and exciting jewelery!!!

Of course the highlight of the trip was seeing Jen! She looked amazing! We went to the temple and it was pouring rain again! But it cleared up just in time for her pictures!!! It was still cold (55 degrees!) though. Bren and I got to spend some time with Jen before the reception because we fixed her hair, that was so fun! We can't wait to do it all over again this weekend at her Vegas open house!!!! (=
