This last weekend, our friends from Arizona came and hung out with us for General Conference weekend. Justin served his LDS mission in Alaska with Paul. His wife, Jeanie, and I email back and forth all of the time and we decided that it was high time to meet in person. We took them to the Alaska mission reunion on Friday night, watched General Conference all weekend, discussed the average height of cacti, and ate way too many cinnamon rolls. Paul and his brother built a fire pit in our backyard and we enjoyed stuffing our faces with s'mores.
The Thatchers left this morning and Paul scratched forlornly at the front window as they pulled out of our driveway. Needless to say, we're already planning our future family vacations with them.
