Church History Museum

We took a trip to the Church History Museum in Salt Lake with my cousin,  Jared, and his family. We met up around 4 and walked all through the museum. It's exhibits were amazing and they even have a fun interactive children's area!! Chris and I got to talk with Jared and Sheila and the kids just played together. It was just like old times! We ate afterwards at the Red Iguana- a delicious mexican restaurant there in Salt Lake before we headed back home.

This piano was brought across the plains along with the other items pictured! Amazing!

Our friends in GA brought these beautiful embroidered cloths to Salt Lake from their mission in Panama. It's called a mola. Gorgeous colors! 

Elevator ride!

Family Reunion! (May 2011)

In May, we were able to attend the Fawson Family Reunion in Grantsville together before Chris left. It was a HUGE event held at a local church. I couldn't believe how many people attended!! We ate and talked with our cousins and then went out to see the family related sights there in Grantsville. I'm related to J. Reuben Clark and this was his home town! Super cool!! It was a fun day!

Here is my cousin, Jared, snuggling Jossi

This trunk came across the plains with the pioneers!

Here is J. Reuben's farm

We'll have to go back and check out this museum...
