We just returned from Salt Lake City last week where we spent some good quality time with Tenille’s family. It was nice to see everyone, and Caleb always love running around with his cousins. He will be talking about his cousins for months now. Tenille’s parents just built a new house to fit the entire family for big occasions like Thanksgiving, and when the entire family gets together, it gets hectic. We had a chance to help out with the Thanksgiving Turkey, and had numerous opportunities to test out the fire alarm system in the new house. The first time by burning a rubber thermometer that we left in the turkey. (Last year we received a thermometer gift with a braided metal cord that you’re supposed to leave in the oven. Apparently, this rubber thermometer cord was not so heat proof… ) Then we had to "clean" the oven using the self cleaning feature…. This produced more smoke than the thermometer… At the end of the day, the house didn’t burn down… although they may be smelling Thanksgiving for weeks to come…
While we were down there, we also had an opportunity to visit the recently upgraded Tabernacle.
Caleb and I learned a bit about digging for dinosaur bones at the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point. Here’s a picture of a bit of our paleontology work.
We also visited the Church Humanitarian Services Building to pick up some brochures and found out that they had no brochures. Finally, we visited the Family History Center and got a name of Korean lady who can help us with our family history work.
It was a great vacation and fun to see Tenille’s side of the family. We’re always treated warmly and it’s always a pleasure to visit.
