{Road Trip Home}

 On the way through Utah we always stop at BYU campus! This year we weren't in a rush (we usually have just an hour or so) we really took time to explore the campus and visit some places we don't normally get to.  First stop was the Cougar Eat for lunch.  

It just so happens my cousin, Tom, works in the same building so we text him and met up. He took us on a tour of his department and it was great to catch up! Tom and I were students at BYU at the same time. He cooked an authentic Italian meal for my roommates and I one night (he served his mission in Italy) we go way back! :)  Anyway, love this guy!

 We loaded up on BYU gear (and spent an arm and a leg).

 My other sweet cousin works at the BYU Bookstore.  So we got to hug and take a picture with her.  We don't see her nearly enough!  

We made it down to the indoor track and Trevor's old stompin' grounds.  He was in heaven re-living the glory days. He spent A LOT of time here.  

 His old coach, Ed Eyestone, even took a few minutes out of his day to chat with us. Such a great guy and coach (He's now the head Track & Field coach).  

We stayed in SLC that night with Trevor's sister. We had a nice evening in Liberty Park.  

The next morning we hit temple square early.  One picture? I must have been burnt out by this point!
 And we stopped at the Pettingill fruit stand in Willard.  No relation...well, maybe way back?? But still super fun for the kids.  

We made to Boise that night in time for Trevor's 20 year high school reunion the next day.  We were only able to attend the family social/picnic, but he had a blast reconnecting with high school friends.  I'm super glad we were able to squeeze that in on the way home.  

We made it home Saturday night so we could attend church on Sunday.  I couldn't possibly miss 3 Sundays in a row. My counselors might have disowned me!  Long and exhausting trip, but plenty of summer fun left.....

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
