A Quick Trip "Home"
We got to make a trip to Salt Lake last week for General Conference and Chaplain Seminar. We had a wonderful time, but it was too short and too jam packed and exhausting. I'm sorry if we didn't get to see you or spend time with you. We hardly had a minute to spare! We left the girls behind in the care of Grandma and Grandpa Reed (THANK YOU!) and Grant came with us. He was an angel, as usual. We arrived on Friday in time to change clothes and head to a dinner for all the LDS Chaplains. Saturday and Sunday were spent attending General Conference, and Sunday evening we had a family dinner and Coco's birthday party in Heber. Monday and Tuesday we spent all day in Chaplain Seminar before flying home early Wednesday morning (7:09 am!). We did manage to squeeze in lunch at City Creek with family and Judy on Saturday in between sessions, dinner in Salt Lake on Monday night with family, and Cafe Rio on Tuesday night with a quick chat and hug for Kendra, Miles, Owen, and their sweet new baby, Elsie Jane. My wonderful parents and sister Noelle helped with watching Grant so I could attend meetings with Ben, and my arms could not have been more grateful. This is something we get to look forward to every year now. Hopefully next time we can stretch it out a few more days, bring all the kids, and make it more of a vacation!
