A Homecoming and A Farewell

A few weeks ago I traveled to Utah with Alexandra and Elisabeth. My oldest nephew, Matthew had just returned from serving a mission in Texas on July 1st, and his younger brother, Jacob, left to serve a mission in Argentina on July 15th.

It was a special occasion to be there with their family and I am SO incredibly proud of my nephews.

Both Matthew and Jacob spoke at church and following the service my sister hosted a delicious brunch at her home. The color theme was yellow and blue to represent the Argentinian flag.

Alexandra enjoyed having all her cousins to herself while Elsa and Lorelai were in Portland competing in a regional track meet.

I loved being in Salt Lake City. The weather was divine, the mountains majestic. It is simply spectacular there!

I love to see the temple.
