The coolest park ever

Saturday afternoon, after the lunch at President & Sister Orton's house, we all drove to a really fun park not too far from their house. This park was amazing. It had all kinds of cool stuff for the kids. Rock walls to climb, suspension bridges, lots of slides, and cool things we had never seen before. Our kids had a blast playing with all the other kids that were at the reunion. We also got hang out with the Leathers Family. Nathan Leathers was one of my companions and one of my best buds in the mission. It was so good to see him.

Mission Reunion

What an amazing mission reunion weekend in St. George. My mission President, President Orton and his wife Sister Orton are President and Matron of the St. George temple. Friday night we had the opportunity of going through a temple session with them and a small group of other return missionaries that served in Romania. Christy and I were asked to be the witness couple which was really neat. We also got a special tour from President Orton. What an amazing experience. One that I will never forget, and it gives me chills just writing about it. I never knew the St. George Temple was so beautiful and so amazing.  
This was a banner that President and Sister Orton had made that was hanging out front of their home Saturday for our reunion. It is a Romanian Sheep herder holding a copy of the Book of Mormon in Romanian.
This is the view of the temple from President and Sister Orton's Front yard. They have a very nice home and beautiful back yard where we had really nice catered lunch on Saturday.
