Some Firsts for this week...

Over the past week Matt and I have experienced some very cool things.
For weeks we had been getting excited for taking Larin to Salt Lake City, because we were planning on doing a session at the SL Temple. I was especially excited to go because we had just watched the church video of the stone cutter in institute. The temple had a new meaning to me because I was able to visually see what hardships people wen through in order to full fill their callings to the prophet.
During the session as we went room to room we were blown away at the wood work, and the extravagant detail that was put in to this creation. I thought the Manti Temp
le was spectacular--it still is--but I just fell in love with the SL Temple.
It is amazing.
I can't wait to go back and see the inside of it again.

The next new thing we got to do was go snowmobiling.
Our bishop is absolutely the most giving man. He inviting the ward to go up a near by canyon to go play on some toys. He brought 4 mobiles and as the couples were given rides to the "hangout spot" the bishops daughter told me how scary her dad was to ride with and,
"He goes REALLY fast." I thought, "OH great I'm next to get a ride, and its from the bishop." It wasn't that bad. :) Thank goodness. When we got to where we were going to spend our time,
Matt and I were pushed right on, and we just went for it. I was screaming the almost the whole way up the mountain. BUT It was a absolute THRILL.
When we got to the bottom I hopped off and Matt took off again to play, then he went toobing down the hill and had a BLAST. It was a good time accompanied by only three other couples not including the bishop and his family, and the second counselor's family, so everybody got a lot of turns.
As the day got later Matt and I started to walk to our car, and the bishop comes flying over and asked if I wanted a ride to the car. So I said yes and well he tricked me. lol He turned right around and said, "Are you sure you want to go home to do homework?? How 'bout just one more ride up the hill and I promise you will live to do your homework!" Well it is hard to tell bishop no so I said, "Okay...I'm kinda scared.." And we were off. His daughter was not lying, bishop is crazy. He was going really fast. I scram in his ear a little bit. Oops.
It was a good day.
We sure are blessed to have such a great bishop that is so giving.


  1. HOW FUN!!!!!

    I am so glad you are having a wonderful time together!!

  2. Im glad it was worth it for you guys. I am so sorry to put you guys out with that enormous drive. Glad the temple helped make it worth the trip. (:

  3. hahahah That would NEVER be me! You've always been the thrill-seeker! how 'bout you & Dad on that crazy Knott's Berry roller-coaster. Freaked your dad out so bad & it takes a lot to do that. You really do have a wonderful Bishop--Pleasetell him thank you from me. It's great to know "The Father" of your ward loves you all so much. **sigh of relief**
