Later that morning, we went to the Nelson’s for brunch(they’ve been friends with our family since I was in elementary school). We all had a wonderful time. My kids love going to ‘Karens’ because she has this enormous house with lots of toys and other fun things to play with and she loves kids(she had ten of her own) and let’s them play with anything and do anything they want in her house. It was her birthday the day before so we brought her a 4 layer rainbow cake with different rainbow filling colors throughout the middle. She made us german pancakes with lots of different toppings and some salads and muffins etc.
In the evening, after dinner, Scott and I went on a date! We met our good friends Ben and Gina at chili’s restaurant and had appetizers and dessert. We had a nice time visiting with one another and eating chili’s yummy food!
We made our own molten lava cakes a couple of weeks ago and here is a picture of it:
Saturday we took the kids to the mall to ride the carousel and play while Scott stayed home, cut down the tree and put up the lights(I have an amazing husband!). Later we packed up bags, deflated the beds(we used a couple of air mattresses; and many thanks to friends who let us borrow their sleeping gear!), fold blankets, clean up etc. and then around 5pm we took off to Salt Lake City. We stopped at temple square for about an hour because they had just put their lights up the night before. It was beautiful and the weather was so nice. I’m so glad that it is still not super cold and snowy yet! Pretty soon though I’m sure. We walked around and listened to a choir in the south visitors center and took lots of pictures. Once we finished up there we walked back to the van and set off for the airport.
