Judy & Pops get sealed

My Aunt Judy and Uncle Richard got sealed for time and all eternity in the Mesa, Arizona Temple this weekend. Judy asked me how much she need to pay me for taking pictures. Here's my response. "Did you really just say that?! Take it back!!" Sheesh!
And I just couldn't resist. Grandma goes 4-wheeling...

Time Out For Women

My aunt invited me to Time Out for Women this weekend and I got to meet Michael McLean who was hosting the event. He wrote the Forgotten Carols. He's a great songwriter but not so great as a singer. Still powerful though. He sang one of my favorites of his "From God's Arms, To My Arms, To Yours." He shared with us his own struggles with depression and being a good Mormon and how faith will overcome and how finally the answer is simply to take the pill. His was a literal pill but in other cases I can imagine it being something else simple like looking at a serpent on a staff or dipping in a pool. Anyway. The was also a musical fireside featuring Joseph: A Nashville Tribute to the Prophet. It was way good, but I think it was better live. It's powerful songs mostly about 3rd parties and their lives and effect on the prophet: like Hyrum, Emma, Porter Rockwell, an irish immigrant, etc... Anyway. It was a good time to be with the girls in my family and to recenter.

Sedona, AZ - Labor Day 2007

I must be brave or stupid to post this picture... I've discovered that Diego's "white" is darker than my "tan." Alas, this is what we did for Labor Day. Slide Rock in Sedona, Arizona. This was my parent's first date.
It's this natural watering hole area. There's a place to wade around, a place to just off a cliff, a place to slide down a mini rapid. Plus, it naturally has pretty cool landscaping.
Sorry. Most of these pictures were taken from my car.... (**insert slapping wrist sound**) Bad Photographer, Bad!
Sedona is at least 10 degrees cooler than Mesa. It was SOOO great to roll down the windows and enjoy the gorgeous weather and not be stifled my heat. I don't want to live in the desert forever...
