Family History Library

I met my sister, Tiffany in Utah to go to the Family History Library. We stayed with our cousin Elizabeth for almost a whole week. It was really great to get away from everything and be able to focus on our genealogy. The library was really cool, but I think I was hoping that I could just walk into the library and all my answers would be there. It doesn't quite work that way. So after my reality check, I took a class there about how to search the web. The FHL has their favorite internet links available to copy on a cd and take home. I definately did that and put them on my computers. Those links are really awesome, they said that some of the Family History Centers have them too. So my tip to anyone wanting to do their genealogy, is to copy the FHL links onto your computer. If you live close to me, just call me and I'll come over and put them on your computer for you.

On our last day, we took a short break from the library to look around. We walked through Temple Square. It was really cool. We enjoyed spending time with each other. We had a great week. We especially enjoyed when Reggie, Elizabeth's husband, cooked authentic curry chicken for us. It was great to get away for a bit and just hang out with the girls.

Grand Canyon

While I went on a trip to Utah, Mike stayed home with kids on their spring break. My brother, Jason went with Mike to take the kids on a trip to the Grand Canyon. They had so much fun. After the grand Canyon, Mike took them to play in the snow, since my kids have never seen snow. It was an exciting day for them. They enjoyed their time with their daddy and their Uncle Jason.
