Utah, snow, family and more snow!

I am writing this post from Lauren's BYU apartment in Provo Utah. We came up to Utah to see family and go to Conference. Larry flew in from Maryland where he has been working for 3 months, I flew in from the OC and Lauren drove up from BYU and we met for a little mini family gathering at Robyn and Alan's house in North Salt Lake. It is SO cold up here and has snowed each day that I have been here. I called Lauren before I came and asked her what the weather was like. I should have checked the weather channel, what was I thinking? Have you seen the way the students dress here? She said, "It's nice, I am in flip flops and a t-shirt!" so I packed my flip flops and trust me I have not taken them out ONCE! We both had to borrow warm coats from my sister Robyn so we wouldn't freeze to death! We went to the Sat AM session of conference and sat in the front row of the balcony and heard great speakers, listened to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and enjoyed our very first time going to General Conference. We had a nice visit with Alan, Robyn, Trevor, Blake and Leanne.

Me, Larry and Lauren in front of the conference center in my sister Robyn's coats!

After conference we said goodbye to the Wilsons, and met up with Julie, David and baby Jacob up in Brigham City.

In Brigham City, we got to see lots of "Reynolds" as we celebrated Grandpa Reynolds 80th birthday, attended a bridal shower for Holly (John's fiance'), watched conference together, and had a wonderful Easter dinner at Ann and Ross's new home. It always feels so homey and cozy to be with my in-laws, Keith and Joyce Reynolds. They are both 80 now and I am amazed at how they just keep on taking care of all of us!
