"Yeah, we'll see about it!"
He's so amazing. So presidential. When November 4th rolls around I'll be taking a Sharpie into the voting booth with me. My ballot will have no hanging chads, but rather big black letters that will say, "ACTUALLY, I CHOOSE MITT ROMNEY."
And then- the other day Freddy was walking through our Home Office in Idaho Falls, passing the colleagues and saw someone that looked eerily familiar (double take). The guy was on his phone, but Freddy waited for him to finish his call. "Hi, I was just wondering... do you have a brother named Spencer Weston (his mission president)?
"Yes, I do!" How weird. So Freddy saw his old mission president's older brother who now works for Melaleuca. Crazy. So now we're going to go down to Salt Lake for Freddy's mission reunion. He's so excited.
Ok, and Jessica was exactly right. We totally went to Calgary for our one year anniversary. And we suck for not blogging for an entire month, I know. But we've just been so ridiculously busy. And really I should be writing an essay for Spanish, but obviously, I'm so not. So let me go ahead and post a few pictures and then I'll explain a little--- maybe a little more later.
This was at the Cardston, AB temple. This was after driving alllll night long. We left Rexburg at 10:00pm on Friday night and drove all night (with a nap around 4:30am, when we were both too tired to just switch off). So we stopped at the temple and originally wanted to stay for a session, but there simply wasn't time. We took some nice pictures and enjoyed seeing all the couples getting married. It's like the smallest city you've ever seen. Up until about a mile away, you'd never guess there was a whole city there in the middle of nowhere.
And here we are on the very top of the Calgary Tower. So after what seems like 500 stories you just get off the elevator and walk around for a 360 degree view of Calgary. And then there's this ledge with a glass floor. It's only about 4 feet off the edge and I'm sure the glass is like 3 feet thick, but there's something incredibly scary about being that high up. Somehow I think that even though millions of people have walked all over it, somehow it's going to shatter once I step on it. Down to the ground I'll fall, no doubt. Really. It's surprisingly intense. You really wouldn't think so-- until you're THERE.
This was Sunday morning at the Zoo/Botanical Gardens/Prehistoric Park in Calgary. It was pretty cool. I was pretty impressed with their wolf exhibit. There was this one white wolf that was just eying this little three year old girl just outside the fence. I thought for sure she was a dead girl. I mean, this wolf was in this stern, attack mode. It was hilarious. And their Africa exhibit is pretty sweet. You're like RIGHT there with the giraffes. Cool. I love zoos.
Alright. It's just about time for us to go to bed and I haven't even read what I'm supposed to write about. Gosh, I just don't want to do it. I promise from now on to keep our blog updated. Pinky promise, sealed with a thumb (which somehow makes my vow that much more meaningful).
