Excursions Summary

The past couple weeks have been filled with family time and good eating, two of our favorite things! Here is a quick recap of why Ry and I are so bored and a tad bit lonely at home now:

Made a trip to Idaho for Kev's spring break (ah - the perks of still being students!). While there we went to Kev's parents' retirement/mission party, relaxed with lots of family, and enjoyed an actual date (I'm talking the whole works, lunch, movie, and no Ry).

The following week Ry and I went on a trip with my fam to visit the area where my baby bro. served his mission. I wish I could say he served in Hawaii or somewhere with a warm beach, but it was actually cool to go to the Independence, Missouri mission. Lots of church history sites: Adam-Ondi-Ahman, Independence, and Nauvoo.

Finally, just this past weekend, my brother, sister-in-law, and their little girl made a pit stop at our house on their way to Minnesota. Originally they planned to stay two nights, but after some persuasion and a convenient snow storm, they stayed an extra two nights! Of course lots of delicious food was involved thanks to my bro. who is a fantastic cook and the dim sum restaurant we discovered in a ghetto part of Denver. I miss you guys!
