Utah #4

September 24th
So it was raining today, again (but it later got sunny). Aubrey and I got up early to go to a session at the SLC temple, but quelle surprise, they are not opened on Monday’s. At all. I thought maybe for the morning, but I guess planning for FHE takes all day! So we were a little sour about that, since we had gotten all dressed up and had our temple bags etc. The anger was short lived tho, because the rest of temple square was still open. Bonus! So Aub and her roomie Natalie took me around. So we got to do all the touristy things (‘cause that’s what I was) and I think my favourite part was seeing the Christus. It was flippin’ big!The whole day was great because the Spirit was so strong and again I was glad I was there with Aubrey. Everyone was asking where I was from and Aubrey was like a proud mama telling them she taught me on her mission, and that she got to be my “mum” in the temple. I just love her.
In between our Temple Square tours, we went to….CAFE RIO! It was amazing, you people are right. I miss it now just thinking about it. Mmmmm. Ok, enough. But seriously, good times. I even had Aub take a picture of me and my excitedness!!! So then after my long day being a tourist from Halifax (Nova Scotia? It’s about as far east as you can go in Canada….oh, lightbulb!) we went to Sharee’s for supper. Honestly, I can’t say I was excited to go, but only because I wanted her to be in the hospital having a baby! But oh well, supper was still cool lol. We didn’t get to hang out too long after supper because we had made plans with Jason Hainsworth (Elder Hainsworth?!) to meet up. So we did. And we ended up going to Aubrey’s aunts place because she has a hot tub. It was fun, but as Karlee already said, it was weird seeing a post-missionary (the one who did my baptism interview!) outside of a suit. It was fun tho. He and Aubrey are friends, so it was all gravy, and it was a nice end to the night. I ended up in bed still prune-y from the hot water! So yay, another post done! I need a kick in the pants for taking so long!

I love reading your posts even though I have looked at your pictures on Facebook...more than once already! You just love to keep rubbing in the Cafe Rio though...don't ya? Just kidding! 3 more post to go? Can't wait!

I agree with Beckey...I've seen the pictures but it's the commentary that really adds to them! Temple square is super cool...I went as a child and can still remember a lot of it...although I'd like to go back someday so I can get an even better appreciation for it. So wierd to see you in a hot tub with a missionary...hahha even if he has gone home...too funny. Can't wait for the next post!

I love love love Cafe Rio...so jealous!!! That sucks about the temple being closed when you went...who knew FHE took so much planning. Maybe I should take that idea and not go to work on Mondays...hmmm

So friend, I too had a swimsuit situation with not one missionary from our mission...but TWO! So weird it was. But I got over it. Matt got a kick out of your make shift bathing suit.

As I have never been to Utah and therefore Temple Square...i think that my favorite part would be seeing the Christus as well. I'll just have to go some day and see it up close...not as up close as you are with Jason in that hot tub picture though! ;)
