Another Adventure!

Wes came for a visit this last weekend. It was nice that I didn't have to make the 3 1/2 hour drive this time! We had a busy and fun weekend mostly spent in Salt Lake. We had beautiful warm weather all weekend, which made me pretty happy too!

Saturday morning we decided to head up to Temple Square. We realized once we got there that we hadn't been to Temple Square together since 7 years ago when we first met. (The night we met, our ward was going to Temple Square to look at the lights.) It wasn't super busy, except for right near the temple where all the couples were taking their wedding pictures. We avoided that section! We walked the grounds, headed over to City Creek for breakfast and then finished up at the visitor center. I maybe asked Wes if he wanted to go see the chrysalis...oh the life of a second grade teacher who has spent all week studying butterflies :) We got a pretty good laugh at that when he called me out on it. I was hoping he hadn't heard me, oh but he had! 
This temple amazes me every time I see it!
 Spring has sprung! Even Wes could appreciate the beauty and smell of the flowers.

On the way back to the car Wes pointed out all the people at the conference center. I noticed the people on the roof and commented that I had never been up there. He suggested we try and go see it. I'm so glad we did because it was incredible! The people who built it thought of EVERYTHING. 
It was the perfect way to spend our morning!

After the temple we switched into Supercross mode! Wes had gotten tickets from work that we couldn't refuse to use. Wes loves supercross and has been really good about teaching me about it along the way. I'm not an expert, but I've asked enough questions now that I am starting to understand more. It's been really nice to have something that he loves carry over into something we can do together. 
We got there early enough to watch practice.
 Millsaps...#18! My favorite!

 450s Main Event
Millsaps didn't win, but he did get 2nd. Unfortunately Villopoto did win and made it so that he is the winner for the season. Kind of bummed about that because he is our least favorite.
 We had sunshine which led to sunburns, but we had a lot of fun!

It was a great weekend and can't wait until the next time we get to have another adventure together!
