Today, my ward went on a temple trip to the Manti, Utah temple. It was really, really cool. The temple is gorgeous and it was a really good experience. As we were standing outside waiting for the rest of our group to make it guess who walked by!? Dallin H. Oaks. Yeah, the apostle. SO cool. And later we walked right past him as we went to the baptistry entrance. I could have reached out and touched him! In the baptistry there was a Spanish branch that had brought their youth to do baptisms so some of the priesthood only spoke Spanish. A few of our group got confirmed in Spanish. It was pretty cool. We were about to leave when the temple president came down to the baptistry. My mom and told me that he lived next door to her when she was a kid so I asked him if he remembered the Glassetts and that I was Carol Sue's daughter. He was so sweet! He got really excited and gave me a giant bear hug and told me how great my grandpa was and to give my mom a hug from him. So fun. Overall, a very fabulous Saturday. Life is good. :)

This past week was the every other year traditional GFR (Glassett family reunion). What is the word for every other year? Biannual? Anyway, this year was a complete success. I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with all my cousins, aunts, uncles, cousins' spouses, and their children. It was awesome. My mom did a fantastic job of putting it all together and keeping everyone happy. That's why she's pretty much the most amazing person on this planet. :) GFR was filled with catching up, eating, hiking, enjoying the cool temperatures, eating, pictures, campfire with smores, and of course, more eating. It was great. I tried to upload pictures but my computer is being quite difficult. :( So, no pictures for now.
