Utah Adventures

Here is a picture of Tyler while he was working on one of his many 20+ paged papers this semester. Leah loves to be close to her daddy, even when he is in his scholar mode!

For conference weekend we decided to have a fun trip down to Utah to see my brother Ryan and his adorable family, and for Tyler to go to his mission reunion. We had never been to the new Church History Library. (Right? We should have been the first people to be there!) As we were leaving Tyler ran into Richard Turley, the Assistant Church Historian, who also co-authored a really good book on the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Tyler was star struck! 

Then we went to a couple of bookstores, that were so much fun for Tyler. At Benchmark Books (the single-best LDS bookstore in existence) he met Curt Bench, who was really involved in the Mark Hofmann case in the mid 1980s (and is also kind of fun to learn about). Tyler was again, star struck!

Then we went to another bookstore where Tyler found a Hebrew edition of the Book of Mormon. These are extremely rare and REALLY expensive, but Tyler was so excited to touch one! 

 We met up with my wonderful sister in law Alison, who was in Utah for a work trip. We were so happy to be able to spend a little while with her and to hear how her and my brother Zach are doing! We sure miss and love them!

 After, we went to Tyler's mission reunion. He loved President and Sister Crockett, and they sure loved him! Teri Crockett is in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, so look for her next conference!

 Finally, we made it down to Provo to spend time with my brother and his family and to watch conference with them the next day. Leah and Robert are super close in age and they sure have fun when they are together!

Here is Eric and Beth who are always so fun to be around and to hang out with when we go to Utah! We had such a fun Conference weekend with all of our family and friends!
