TTTD part 2

Does the Temple of the Forbidden Eye Count? It does for the Woods!!!!
We are looking for an Eeyore Parking Lot sign in the projection room.
We left on Thursday AM and saw the Merrill - Montague's at the airport. We were with Jen and Sean and kids on Thursday and hung out with Colleen and Daren for a while on Friday. Too bad I'm not their Visiting Teacher because we had an excellent visit.

On Thursday a really big group of Quienceneara girls took over the castle, main street and shut down Fantasy Land. There were more white dresses there then on the Saturday before Spring Break at the Temple. (They were not Temple ready dresses by any means, and lets just say there was a lot of Quienceneara and not much fabric). I got our hotel from Priceline and it was the worst 3 star ever. The people next door to us woke us up after midnight cursing and fighting loudly about fast passes. I just turned the air on to high and so it covered up the gun shots.
You'll have to ask Brad what he was wishing for?

Lex, Brad and Em on some fishes. Alexis actually liked this ride.
Steve had to stay home and work :( and we missed him. We love Disneyland and Brad needed to go one more time. We had a great time and walked our legs off. I was ready to take over Lexi and Landon's stroller but Sean wouldn't let me. Thursday night Jen, Em, Brad and I were in line on Indiana Jones and it was a sad and happy moment to see my three adult kids together at Disneyland. We have gone so many times, but since Brad was only 10 when Jen got married, and he hated Indiana Jones until he could drive, it had been years since they had been together on this ride. My kids are really fun, funny people and I'm just glad they let me go along for the ride. We are already looking forward to next time!!!!

Two Temples in 10 days - 1st

Thanks to everyone who came out to support Brad as he went through the temple. It was wonderful to see everyone. Brad said he would write about it, but until then......

The Great Karnak

So this is why Brad is laughing about his call. (If you have heard this story you can skip this post)
Jennifer and Sean were in Florida so we told them to call at 6:00 pm and we would have them listen on speaker phone. Jennifer called about 5:55 and asked Brad if he had opened his call yet (he hadn't). Joking with her he said, "Yea I did, I'm going to Boise!!!" Then he told her we hadn't started yet. When he opened his letter and read Boise, Jennifer thought he was still teasing her and Brad started to laugh and had to convience her that no, he wasn't. He said that he had told Jennifer the first "Mormony" name he could think of and Boise was it!!! I wonder how he would do on the LotteryNumbers? :-)

Temple Time

Brad will be going through the Temple on April 19th - the 5:00 session. We would love for you to join us. The temple has indicated that the session will be full and has requested that we arrive 30 minutes early and sit near the front of the chapel. We hope to see you there.

Brad's Mission Call

Hey everyone!

Brad received his mission call to Boise, Idaho. He reports May 14th! When he leaves, I'll be updating this blog with emails, pictures, and news. Be sure to check back often for updates.

Brad's "farewell" talk will be on Mother's Day. We meet at eight 0'clock a.m. in the building on Crismon between Baseline and Guadalupe. You are welcome to come!

Brad's open house will be held the previous Saturday evening (the 10th) from 5:30- 7:00 at our home. Hope to see you there!
