SNAP Recap--the Family

When I had the crazy idea last year to try to win a ticket to the conference, my main reasoning was that I had family in the area that I could stay with and meet up with when I came.  It was probably my favorite part of the trip!

I have to share the funniest thing first--I have a sister-in-law who lives with her husband and their 5 kids near Thanksgiving Point (where the conference was)  I was sad that I wasn't going to be able to visit them because they were leaving the same day to go to Minsk, Belarus where they are going to live for 4 months while he teaches there.   But then, I actually got to see all of them, in the Salt Lake Airport!  I happened to land about 40 minutes before their take off, so we got to sit and visit for a little bit.  Such a fun surprise that it worked out!

Then I stayed with my sister Chris, so we got to hang out every night I was there.  

I also drove down to Provo to visit my brother and his wife at BYU.  The last time I saw Mike and Aly was at their wedding, so not a lot of downtime to chat.  It was fun getting all caught up with them!

It was fun being back on campus since it's where my husband and I both went to school and met.

(and yes, those are my duct tape boots--they made me feel kind of famous at the conference since a couple of people recognized them!) 

On Saturday we all went to Cafe Rio for lunch too.  Yum!

I'll be back later to share about some of the people I met and things I did during the conference.  Thanks for reading!
