Home Sweet Home

Last month I had the privilege of going home to go through the temple with my little sister, Lauren, in preparation for her mission. I got to be there for an entire week and although the weather was cooler than I was hoping for I had a blast! Everyone in the immediate family was there except Joe and John Michael. We played games past midnight every night, stayed up even later talking, ate great food, celebrated my birthday, went to the temple, and got to go to an Imagine Dragons concert.
The awesome cookie cake Emma made for me. 

Us waiting for Imagine Dragons to start playing. Did Alta Genius REALLY need to play for so long?

 Some great pics my Mom took of Aja and Dan while they performed.

 After party at Whataburger. I'm so glad I made it here during my stay, but unfortunately I wasn't so lucky with Chick-fil-a.

Our ward family and immediate family outside of the temple after Lauren went through for the first time.

I truly had a blast seeing everyone back home. Lauren reported to the MTC the following week and from her letters she sounds like she is having an amazing time. She is thrilled that her companion will go running with her every day, has spotted Elder Holland, and has already sang in a small group in front of all the girls in the MTC for Relief Society. All she needs to do now is get Spanish under control and she's on her way to Cali!
