We've been lucky to have a lot of Thomas' family in town. On Monday we had a barbecue with some of the family and friends. We mentioned cousin Anna last time. Her sister also was in town prior to entering the MTC, and coupled with some others, it was a fun get-together, complete with complementary ice-blocking, thanks to some previous patrons.
|Sarah & Anna at Rock Canyon|
|Various Hoffmans, Bradshaws, and Petersons :o)|
|Anna-- she is a quite talented photographer!|
|Burgers, Mushroom-Swiss burgers, and chicken|
|Our new twin nephews|
|Thomas on ice|
|The reception was at Le Jardin|
|Thomas took guests' photos at this cute "photo booth"|
|The Mr. & Mrs., with her family|
|Camille made this cake (and ours as well) -- methinks we need a Bradshaw Bakery to go along with our Bistro :o)|
|Bridge that spans the street, connecting the mall (on two blocks)|
|Lights we liked above the escalators|
|The best part of the mall... that it is so near the (extremely peaceful) temple grounds!|
Despite being busy, we do try to find time for each other, too. We've been on several walks, visited the temple, and watched a bit of Everybody Loves Raymond and I Love Lucy. We also watched My Fair Lady to further our linguistic understanding...gotta keep learning even if school is out!
