For Family Home Evening (FHE) we went to Bountiful to see an art exhibit. Afterwards, we headed up the mountain and walked around the temple grounds. It was a really nice evening.Now if you have ever gone anywhere with Nathan or his Dad, you know that EVERYWHERE they go they meet someone they "know". At the temple grounds there was a nice young woman who offered to take our picture. Of course she had a New Zealand accent. Of course she was from there. Of course she knew of the Ormsby's in Hamilton, NZ. And believe it or not, she is here in Utah visiting her mother who just happens to live in our ward!! I can't believe it! Even after 9 years of this, it still amazes me just how small the world is if you are an Ormsby from New Zealand.
This is the view of the valley from the northwest side of the temple. There is suppose to be a huge lake there (for those of you out of state), but as you can tell, the Great Salt Lake is now a few salt puddles. The mountain on the left is (suppose to be) an island. Very sad.
