conference trip

Well we just got back from a weekend in Salt Lake City, attended most all of the conference sessions, and had a nice visit with Grandad and Betty Jean. We were staying at the Marriott down town SLC and could walk to all the sessions. President Hinckley gave a wonderful talk and it was so nice to see him. It looks like he has lost some weight from his illness and surgery. It's hard to believe he is almost 96. But it was a wonderful conference and we really enjoyed it. Our trip home yesterday went quickly, and despite our 1 hour wait at the border, we made it home in 14 hours.
We also had a chance to visit with George and Jeanette Oakes, dad's mission pres and that was wonderful. They were excited about Dad's new calling and gave him lots of advice.
I THought Grandad didn't look very good, his color is kind of grey, but it was nice to have a visit with him. He has lost some weight and looks thinner that he has for years.
We also ran into the McCorquindales, John and Jaaaanuuuuus, It was fun to see them. Elise is due with baby any day now. It's a boy.
Anyway, it's good to be home.
