Two overall impressions from our trip: I think two and a half weeks was just barely too long. Two weeks would have been perfect. By that time we were starting to long for our own beds and our usual routines. However: each of our wonderful stops was just a little too short in and of itself. Besides San Francisco (for the family reunion) we stayed at each of our destinations for only one day. One day just wasn't enough. We find ourselves now planning to make return trips to each stop and give them the additional time they wanted. We felt this especially in Utah. We had a long list of things we wanted to do and see, people we wanted to visit and simply lacked the time. Our exploring of BYU and Temple Square felt abbreviated and somewhat rushed. Next time, Utah, next time.
But here's what we did do...
|Hiked the Y. Shocking fact: in all of our years as students we never once hiked the Y.|
What was wrong with us?
|Sitting on the Y|
|Picked up some souvenirs at the BYU bookstore|
(there's that Y on the mountain behind us)
|Visited Brad's office and sat in one of the classrooms he uses|
|Temple Square. Our last visit was about five years ago so they didn't remember much.|
|There are many fountains around Temple Square and the Conference Center.|
Our dutiful children were sure to get wet in every single one of them.
