Friday afternoon (after a sad farewell to my rental car, the Kia Rondo...tears were shed, emotions ran high..) anyways...we drove up to Salt Lake to meet with Brandon's uncle, Elder Neil Andersen, in the church office building. He is becoming the new President of the Seventy soon and has a meeting in SLC the morning of August 8th with some of the 12, but is STILL going to fly down that afternoon! We are so grateful and excited to have such an important man, not only in Brandon's life, but in the church seal us! It was so great to meet him. He took us around the building a little, including right out side each of the 1st Presidency's office door's and one of the conference rooms where they all meet. He also told us a story of a girl that threw up all over the alter right before he sealed them...I was so mortified that I wanted to throw up right there!!
After, Brandon was kind enough to let me go shopping at Gateway..even though he felt dumb following me around all the stores ;) What a guy!! Then after, we were able to go to the Lagoon Amusement park with our best friends Emily and Adam. (Adam is Brandon's roommate, and Emily used to be in our ward) They are our most favorite couple to hang out with, they are hilarious! IT WAS SO FUN! Adam and I had never been and we loved it! It was pretty crowded but we were still able to go on every ride we wanted, and then some. The highlight of the night though, was when Adam was FREAKING OUT on the Ferris Wheel! We had been on tons of death defying, super fast, flipping us upside down rollar coasters and decided to take a break on the Ferris Wheel. Well, it was one of those that you can spin yourself around as you go, and apparently it was too much for Adam to handle....so funny. I apologize for no "real pictures" but we didn't want to bring anything extra with us, like cameras, or cell phones (forcing us to ask some 12 year old boys if we could use their phone to call Emily's mom to come pick us up...oh memories of junior high).
This is "Wicked" we were all pretty nervous before this one, but it wasn't that bad
WHAT A FUN DAY!!
