Trip to Utah

Our nephew came home from his mission to Italy 2 weeks ago and we went up to welcome him home and spend some time with Geoff's family. We also got to go to the Salt Lake temple, which is beautiful. I'm always amazed at the skill of the craftsmen who built it without the benefit of all the tools we now have. It's pretty cool thinking of the history of the temple, too, that it took 40 years to build, that the prophets walk the halls. Pretty amazing.

Geoff with sweet little niece Jill, the youngest of the nieces and nephews on Geoff's side.

We spent a lot of our time playing the wii. Here is Geoff with brother-in-law Ron. I don't know if you can see or not, but notice which level they are playing. Hee hee! It had been a while since Geoff had played so everyone that played him gracefully played at a higher level to give him a chance. Of course, that didn't stop him from trash talking when he won! (his level 1 beating someone else's level 6!) I of course was creamed by everyone as I had never played before ever. It was still fun, though. I especially enjoyed the hoola hoop competition! I took a video of Geoff and I'm tempted to put it on here! We'll see.

We went to a yoga class with the nieces and I remembered how inflexible I am! When you look at the picture of me, just imagine that my knees are very bent, because that's what's allowing me to reach anywhere near my toes!
Geoff tried to keep up with Hannah (on his right) and complained of soreness the rest of the weekend!


  1. Love this post! So glad you could come visit. You know you're always welcome. Man, wish I'd been in the yoga class. Fodder for months. *grin*

  2. This is so great! I wish I could get Greg to do Yoga...Geoff is a good sport. We had fun in Utah with you all!

  3. Wow..that is great! Geoff is a good sport. I don't think I could get Greg to do yoga..looks fun and we had a great time in Utah with everyone. :)
