We returned from our trip late Friday evening March 29th, Scott's mom picked us up from the airport, bless her heart. She did so much that week and a half for the kids, we're grateful she was able to come and spend time with them as she lives out in NC so we only get to see her about once a year. Friday afternoon was the Haggins sealing at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. It was beautiful and we were so happy we could be there with them. Here are Mark, Stacey and Kira outside of the temple just after their sealing.

We got back into Rome Tuesday night and went straight to our "hotel", more like a flat, but totally remolded, beautiful and spacious. The owner was so kind and stayed up late waiting for us to get in, then showed us around, told us to help ourselves to food in the fridge and on the counter (we share a kitchen with a couple other rooms) and then pulled out a map of Rome and showed us an ideal walk for the following day where we'd hit all the main attractions. We woke up Wednesday morning and took an Uber out to see the LDS temple being built in Rome. It was about a 30 minute car drive (32 euro or so which was a lot more than public transportation, but we only had a day in Rome so we didn't want to take the bus/metro both ways). The temple and visitors center and surrounding area is almost done. The construction worker we talked to said they should be done by this summer...then shortly after we got home from the trip we found out they plan to hold the open house next year in eary 2019 and the dedication should be in March.
Here we are finishing our night at the Spanish Steps.
