after our adventures in joshua tree national park, the boy and i arrived at my sister’s house dirty and sweaty and tired on friday night. i was positively giddy the last 15 minutes of the drive – i always get this bubbly brand of excitement before i see family, especially nieces and nephews. it was so fun to catch up with shawni, dave, max, elle, grace, claire and lucy. i love them so so much.
on saturday morning we went to claire’s soccer game.
and then stopped by the new gilbert temple on our way to tempe. it was neat to see this work in progress and feel the spirit of the house of the lord.
we went to tempetown lake right by asu and rented a boat to cruise around on for an hour. it was so much fun! we plugged in music and had a little dance party.
and grace and claire jumped in the lake!
the boy and i met a dear friend of his from his college days for lunch and then we hurried back to the pothiers’ for egg dying and painting to prepare for easter!
shawni, elle, grace and i went to the general young women broadcast and then shawni and dave, the boy went out to dinner for a little double date. what a great easter eve!
