A Weekend Away

Last weekend Dad and I were able to go to the Mesa Temple sealing for Mark and Wendy Duff's daughter, Erin. We had such a great time together I thought I'd share some of what we did and some pictures with you.
We actually left on Thursday night and although the flights weren't as cooperative as we'd like, we had an adventure to remember. We were waiting at the Delta gate but it didn't look like we were going to get on so Dad went to get us passes for US Airways. While he was gone, they called for us to board (small miracle!!)but since he couldn't make it back to the Delta gate fast enough, we let the seats go to another couple. I think they really appreciated it.
We went down to the US Airways gate and we able to get on a flight going to Phoenix through Las Vegas. Yap, we went to LV at 10:30 on Thursday night and then caught another flight to Phoenix. We got in around 1:00 in the morning and thanks to Dad we had a car and a room waiting for us. Needless to say, we were very glad for both of them.
After a restful night we took off on those fun Arizona freeways to find our way to Luke's place. He was there for his training and since this was his one day off, he went with us to the temple and luncheon. That was the best part!! It was wonderful to be in the Mesa Temple with Dad and Luke. I'd been there once while I was in college, but of course I didn't go in back then. This was the first time I'd been inside. We were all impressed with the Temple President's message at the sealing. What blessings we receive when we are faithful to our covenants.
The luncheon was held on the back patio of a wonderful Mexican place. The food was great and the company~the best. After lunch we took Luke back to his place so he could study more for his orals that he was taking on Saturday. Dad and I went back to the reception and then left for the airport. We were able to get our US Airways flight back into SL and then we stayed the night there and came home on Saturday.

Speaking of Gracie reminds me of Jimmy

I think most of you have met my close friend and companion, Jimmy. Sometimes I call him Swimmy Jimmy but either way, he doesn't protest. In fact, often when I talk to him, he's sound asleep in his bed, otherwise known as "his shell". Now, that is a sight to see, so I thought I'd share some of his pictures with you. Enjoy!
