Tom and Tina have landscaped their back yard since I was last here. It was like a mini-botanical garden.
They might have a mini-botanical garden , but they have a maxi cat--Zipper, a Mainecoon. He was not very friendly, but it was fun listening to how he likes to shower with his owners. I'm surprised there's room for anyone else in the shower after the cat gets in!
We also visited the International Wildlife Experience so Brittany could see what's happening at another life science museum other than the one she works at in Provo.
When I told Crystal and Ed we were going to see stuffed animals they were thinking more along the lines of teddy bears than grizzly and polar.

Melissa is the daughter of Ed's brother, Tom and his wife Tina. They looked great, especially since Tom has lost about 70 pounds in the past year!
One of the more touching moments of the day was Melissa dancing with her dad as he wheeled her around the dance floor. It was a real day of celebration, and a wonderful start for Melissa and Stephen as they start their new life together!

The Relief Society had a mother daughter activity Tuesday night for all women 8 years old and up. What was the point of having 3 daughters if none of them lives at home with me anymore? Jen, on my left, has 5 sons, so we decided to be buddies for the night. We started out learning how to paint nails.
Then, we progressed to how to braid hair. I wish I would have had all these creative braiding options 20 years ago! I could have had so much fun on my girls' hair!
We then progressed to cake (and cupcake) decorating. The best part of that was eating our cupcake afterwards!
We barely had time to finish a set of earrings in our short 15 minutes in that rotation!
At the end I practiced my new braiding skills on Jen. It looks like I could use some practice! Where are my daughters when I need them?

Marjorie Merriweather Post (heir to the Post Cereal company) over her lifetime.
We enjoyed the visit so much and hope to return at Christmas and see how they decorate for the holidays!
