General Conference Weekend

Standard

We are SO happy to be in Salt Lake for General Conference weekend!  We get to spend time with Greg’s parents and they are THRILLED to be able to play with Bekkett.  We got tickets to this afternoon session and we can’t wait to go and be in the presence of the Prophet of the Lord.

Yesterday we did a 5k.  Greg and I took turns pushing Bekkett and then he sprinted to the end and crossed the line with a time of 31:30.  I was shortly behind him with a 32:23.  Neither of us were feeling up to par, but we did it.  We have T-minus 2 weeks and 6 days to train for the Half and Full Marathon on April 21.  We are so excited, nervous and anticipating a wonderful adventure.

We got to Salt Lake yesterday and had a picnic with the Plant family.  It was great to have them here and to catch up with them.  We found out that Greg’s mission mom was called to be the new General Relief Society President.  Sister Burton is going to be SO great!  Greg just thinks the world of her, as do I, with the brief opportunities I have had to rub shoulders with her.  What an incredible woman to lead the sisters of the church at this time.

Brent and Teresa got a final offer on the cabin last night.  It is bitter sweet for us, but we are so excited for the many adventures that await us.  After Priesthood session, I got to go on a date with my hunk of burning love!  We went down to the Gateway to the California Pizza Kitchen for dinner and it was delicious.  Greg got some frozen yogurt and we got some DELICIOUS cookies from the cookie shop that Sister Tui introduced to me years ago.  THEN we got to go The Hunger Games movie.  It was the first time in years that we went to a movie just the two of us.  It was pretty great.  Can’t wait to see it again!

Well, I am excited for this blog and can’t wait to write some GREAT updates of our adventures this past month!  Will add photos soon!
