Pizza and Ice Cream on Park City Main Street.

And while I was at work she attacked Temple Square and hit up tours and the Library

It was a JAM PACKED week.
But this was Jen's first trip alone, first real stamp on her passport, and she was stoked to see the mountains and be a part of Utah life for a bit. So we had to make it a good week!

Jen a member in the first area of my mission, she lives along the Niagara Peninsula and works as a librarian, she lived with her dad until he passed and has been on her own since then. She is so optimistic and will go with the flow with anything so I took advantage of that and we tore it up! I would give a suggestion and she was always game. And it does my heart so good to play tour guide, I love Utah.

The best part of her trip was seeing the temples, it wasn't planned but once we saw a few it became a challenge to see more. Brenda tagged along too and it was great to road trip around Utah with Mexico, USA and Canada. I made them take terrible selfies in front of each temple, against their own will. (They loved it)

It was fun to talk about my mission, find out how the people in that area are doing. It is weird to think I served a mission, it has been 10 years. Still think it was one of the best things I did for my life, and I still think that little nook of Canada is so charming, it was great to be connected with it again.

We would have got Payson in there too, but Rav was feeling tired. Next time.

God Bless Utah. Come back anytime Jen!

It was a blast! I can't believe I'm sitting back at work and I'm missing every moment it. I miss waking up to mountains and hearing the church bells and just soaking it all in every day!!

This makes my heart SO VERY VERY HAPPY!!
