Grandma & Grandpa Comes for a Visit

My mom LOVES genealogy and frequently comes to Utah to attend BYU's many genealogy conferences. The conference my mom was attending was held on Friday and Saturday of last week and so my parents decided to come and stay for the entire week. Logan of course was ecstatic to have grandma and grandpa around and of course to be spoiled and have all of their attention for an entire week. We had a super fun and very full week planned with grandma and grandpa. On Monday we took them to a basketball game. The team lost, but we still had a great time. I was even sprayed from the mascot with a TON of silly string. It was all over.

On Tuesday we had reservations to attend the Draper Temple Open House. We often talk to Logan about Temples and how special they are and so it was great to be able to take him inside and to show him the House of the Lord and convey to him the importance of Temples and the Spirit that is felt within. He was so cute walking around holding a pamphlet they gave us at the door and trying to convince us it was a map of where we were going. It was also fun to be in the Temple with my parents. My dad and I had the opportunity to do the lighting for a Temple that was built in California and so we usually pay extra attention to the lighting in the Temples too.

On Wednesday, we took Grandma shopping. And on Thursday we spent the afternoon at the Family History Center in Salt Lake while Logan and grandpa explored the city. Here are a few pictures of Logan taken from grandpa.

On Friday we took Grandma and Grandpa to another Basketball game. This time the team won and we even came home with a free T-Shirt too. I think we have about 10 of them now. My parents enjoy watching basketball because they had to sit through many years of basketball games while several of their children played in High School and I played in College as well. Before the game started we picked grandma up from her conference and went to dinner. Here is grandpa being silly and entertaining Logan. And, I can't forget a picture of my two favorite boys!

On Saturday while my mom was at her conference, my dad and Kerry built shelves in my laundry room for my birthday present. I have a huge laundry room, and so it's so great to be able to fill some of that space with shelves and to get things up and off of the floor and a little more organized. Now all I need to do is paint and the project will be completed. YEAH!!!

On Saturday evening, we picked grandma up from her conference and headed to Salt Lake to attend Disney on Ice. Saturday was also my parents 40th wedding anniversary and so it was a special treat for all of us. The show was called Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey where they featured several Disney movies including; The Lion King, Lelo and Stitch, The Little Mermaid, and Peter Pan. Logan's favorite was of course Peter Pan. We brought our camera with us but discovered that after the first picture, the battery was getting low. So, the pictures are not the greatest, but here are a few from the evening.

Waiting for the show to begin.

Grandma & Grandpa are good at spoiling the
grandkids. Here Logan is with his cotton candy
and his fish hat from The Little Mermaid.

He wouldn't take the hat off all night.

Overall, we had a GREAT time and LOVED having Grandma and Grandpa come to visit. We're always sad when they have to go home, but are planning to see them again in a few short months.
