Hey everyone! We'll probably bombard you by email, blog and phone about Wednesday night to make sure everyone has the same info. I think there was a misunderstanding on Sunday to meet at 6:00 and go to the 6:30 session. Unfortunately, I don't think that exists. So, please still plan on attending the 6:00 session - which would mean meeting at 5:30. Let's please plan to meet in the chapel at the temple rather than at our ward building, that way if there are any snags, at least we're in the temple rather than trying to rush over. And if anyone's game, we could grab ice cream or something after the session. (But not Maverick frozen yogurt. Our last experience still haunts me. Should have known better than to buy dairy from the sketchy location on North Temple.)

So, recap:
WEDNESDAY, September 26 - meet at the temple @ 5:30 for 6:00 session. Optional frozen goodness after the session.

When It Rains, It Pours

After a literal blogging drought, I've decided to drown you all with posts. :)

Actually, we just wanted to give everyone a heads-up about September's temple night. For September, we'll cater to you Wednesday folks... I think we'll try to alternate between Weds/Thurs each month, there was a pretty even split in availability.

For those who are available, please plan on the 6:00 session on Wednesday, September 26th - we'll plan to meet in the chapel.

Finally, Some Visual Representation

Kudos to everyone in this shot who managed to hold a great smile in spite of the confusing 7-second delay.

The group after Jake Otteson made his triumphant ascent - I swear he must have RUN up the mountain. Impressive.

Hey! I Can See My House From Here...

Well, our first activity has come and gone. Thank you to all of you who were able to make it – thanks for braving the peak, the wind and my attempt to sing the alto line of the hymn. We appreciated Victoria supplying the delicious peanut butter kiss cookies, and the sweet Korean lady at the EZ Mart for stocking Chewy Chips Ahoy. We had a great time, and we hope it gave you a chance to get to know some of the amazing couples in our ward a little better.

I wanted to post some pictures from the hike, but it seems the fates have aligned to prevent me from doing so. I took my camera to work because I knew uploading pictures at home would be a nightmare thanks to our no bueno internet connection (my apologies to the management for marring their reputation on this blog with its readership in the high teens … but seriously). And my computer at work is apparently unable – or unwilling – to recognize my camera. So – maybe don’t hold your breath, but I promise some pictures will be posted shortly.

In other news: We’ve been enjoying the cookies we didn’t dare expose you to – I threw them all in a Tupperware when we got home Monday night, and they seem to have melded into one large chocolate chip mess. However, I’ve found eating a chunk of cookie with a fork really hits the spot after a hard day’s work.
