trip to grandma's

Hey All these are pics from our salt lake city trip! We went to Utah to visit Paul's Grandma Mangum She is the sweetest lady ever. We also saw or in my case met new cousins. We had a great time. It was a very long weekend however going off 2 hours of sleep we went to temple square it is so beautiful there. We took the tour of the new conference center that building is amazing all on its own but then you add all the paintings and history that is in with it WOW! then we saw all the other buildings that are just as beautiful and full of history but they don't have a tour which is fine. the grounds where so green and full of color considering it snowed the whole time we where there.

This is us with grandma mangum she was not happy that i made her take a picture with paul and me but she did it anyway what a trooper. this is the hospital that she is in right now where they are trying to rehabilitate her. it doesn't look like a hospital it looks like a cute apartment or a hotel. And the food there is great we would have eaten with her except we didn't know we could until we went to leave but that's okay. She seems to be doing better than everyone expected. she was doing better than we had heard so it was great to see her looking good.

Here is the snow it was grey the whole time we where there but it was fun to be in different weather. We left Arizona at 80 degrees and landed in Utah at 30 degrees thank heavens for warm clothes well on my part paul and jeremy both had on shorts the first day good thing they had pants with them.

We went to Boondocks to ride go karts and play video games but the guys tried a flight simulator that turned out to be a virtual rollercoaster it spun them upside down and all around i was glad they had fun because i would not be part of that!

And then we had to say goodbye at 4:oo AM not fun but better than 2:45am going to Utah! it was a really great trip spending time with family i hope we can do it again soon!

Great pictures! Those of the temple are beautiful. You should be a professional. Come back again soon and maybe we'll have better weather. Love ya
