Ahhh, family

Our home has been christened with its first real house-guests: Ryan and Janae.



-Went to a lake

-Ate Indian food and learned an important lesson: "Mild" for Indians means "medium-hot" for Americans...and too hot for Janae (sorry Janae!)

-Made homemade raspberry ice cream

-Watched Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Thirteen (Camber's not sure what happens in Ocean's Twelve, but skipping it didn't make Ocean's Thirteen confusing)

-Ate the following crazy pizza flavors at Mesa Pizza: chicken enchilada, Philly cheese steak, barbecue chicken with french fries, and chicken penne pasta, among others.

-Went to church

-Talked a lot

-Slept in (well, Ryan and Janae slept in. Camber thought it sounded nice)

-Played Jenga and made it to 36 rows

-And went to Nauvoo! Here's Ryan and Janae in front of the beautiful Nauvoo temple (they look little).

And here's Isaac in the blacksmith shop

The famous walk down Parley Street

And the Mississippi River at the end of Parley Street. It's very, very big.

Camber was there too, but she was on the wrong side of the camera.

Sight-seeing seems like something to do on vacation, not when you live somewhere, so it was wonderful to have Ryan and Janae there to give us an excuse to be tourists ourselves. Further, it was just nice to have Ryan and Janae around for their own sake, because they are very fun people.

And when they left, they took a little of home back with them.

We miss you, family!
