Chicago temple trip










We took a big bus to the Chicago temple with other members of our branch. I watched Jackie while Renn went to a session and then Renn watched Jackie while I went to the session. Altogether it was two nights, and one and a half days time for one temple trip. It made me appreciate it more. It's a pretty temple too. We would have liked to see a little of Chicago, but there was no time for that.

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
