Called to Serve

We have loved traveling and being with family for the past two years but we felt the call to serve another mission so here we are in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for the next year.

One Last Weekend Away

We flew to Salt Lake on Friday, Jan. 29th, for a few days to visit family before going into the MTC. We had a direct flight from Fresno - what a change from having to go to LA or other points to just to head back up north.
It was really cold when we landed, at least WE thought so. There was snow on the ground but it had been there from previous times.

We headed for our hotel and what a surprise when we arrived. Wayne had put in a $50 limit on Priceline and we ended up in the Hyatt Place out by the airport. We checked into our room and found a gorgeous SUITE. Since we stayed there 3 nights it was really nice. The only problem was that there were no food places nearby. But they provided breakfast, we hit WalMart and stocked up on lunch things and we had dinner arranged for Sat. and Sun. so it all worked out just fine.

Saturday morning we went out to go into town and found ice all over the car.

We just bummed around a little and then we met Wayne's Uncle Ralph, Aunt Opal, Uncle Carlyle, Aunt Shanna and Aunt Louise at the Olive Garden. It was so nice to see them all and we had such a good visit.

On Sunday morning it was snowing. We had planned on going to the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast so we got up our courage and made our way through the snow. After the broadcast we went to a Sacrament meeting in the Joseph Smith Memorial building. It was a really good morning. That evening we went to dinner at Anna and Cory's. Wonderful f00d and it was so nice to see the kids.
