Today Jake's school had a Halloween Parade, complete with plenty of awesome costumes, lots of pictures, marching around the halls (or chillin in a wagon while your teacher pulls you), and of course, trick-or-treating.

Hola mi amigos!!
I realize it's been quite some time since I posted, and my only excuse is that I have no camera...
usually I use the parentals but "someone" decided to go and lose the memory card,
and therefore we haven't taken any pictures in a while...
which is a total bummer because this past weekend was full of amazing memories
that I wish I could have stored somewhere other than my brain.
But I will try to do this post justice using only words to capture the
essence of just how awesome this weekend really was.
-flew to SLC, Utah
-Went to Salt Lake Temple
-Dinner @ "The Roof"
(if you've never been you must go before you die...it's amazing...expensive, but amazing)
-Joseph Smith movie @ the Memorial Bldg.
(cried my eyes out)
-Dance @ Studio 600
(not so much worth the $10 bucks we paid to get in)
(Kandice and I were lucky enough to sit about 12 rows
from the front thanks too Uchdtorf's body guard who is a
family friend of the Smith's and Winn's)
-Work the corner haggling people for tickets
(quite an experience...let me tell ya)
(surprising, I know)
-Dinner @ Zuppa's
(Utah's version of Corner Bakery)
-games, swimming, ice cream, staying up way to late, etc...
-more haggling people for tickets
(we held up a sign that said "Will Choose the Right for Tickets")
-Reunion of family and friends...
Brad, Kellie, Dane, Holly, Dave, Shelley...
-ward testimony meeting
-"California here I come,
right back where I've started from"
(I could barely wait to see Jake)
I was so lucky to get to go on this trip with the singles ward...
it was the most spiritual, uplifting, fun, sleep deprived, awesome,
rewarding weekend I've had in quite some time.
