June and I went visiting teaching to Charlotte yesterday at Noodles and Company. It's nice to have lots of new choices of places to eat in Eldersburg. We could eat at a new place every month and not run out for a year! I had the Thai Hot Pot which really warms you up on a cold and rainy day! We followed it up with a trip to TJ Maxx, which was just as fun.

Our cherry tree gets bigger and fuller each year. I love it and feel sad we won't be around in 10 years to see it in its full glory!
Ed and I and Coda enjoyed a shady walk on the fire trail where the trees are mostly leafed out now. This is the best time of year!
The fun part was visiting with the ladies while we crocheted. That was also the problem, as we slipped a few stitches as we talked. Hopefully, the orphans won't notice!

We met my sister, Joan, for dinner. She introduced us to some new Thai taste treats, including this Tom Kha soup, which was delicious. Anything with coconut milk in it always tastes great! Joan says its the lemon grass that makes it! She is a bit of an expert on Thai food, as she travels there frequently for work.
This morning Joan brought me over to Dixie College where she showed me her computer crimes lab. She teaches a class in this room on how to get information off cell phones. I think she is probably the one that broke open that Iphone for the FBI, but she's not admitting anything to me!
Afterwards she let me use one of her computers to update my blog. Next time I come down I'll try not to leave my laptop at Grandma's house!

It is only 15 minutes from home, and the trail follows the beautiful Patapsco river.
Last time we were here it was hot and muggy, and all the "no swimming" signs were a bummer. Today we were not tempted to go in the water!

Wind, wind, go away!

My favorite speakers were Elder Holland (heartfelt reminder to remember what we've learned and felt) and President Uchtdorf (comparison to Dresden rising from ruins and our lives if we repent). I also liked Sister Oscarson (urging us to internalize what we believe) and Sister Marriott.(we should nurture others). OK, I admit, with Sister Marriott, I just wanted to listen to her lovely Southern drawl all afternoon!
