One Long Day

This weekend we came to Thatcher/Virden for Delanie's baptism. We decided to go to Mesa Thursday night and pick up our washer and dryer (another long story) and the next day go to the temple (we're still doing good on our goal of going to the temple once a week). We met my parents there and stayed at my grandma's house. On Friday morning we went to the temple (of course an hour later then we wanted too...thanks to my dad). Well the session took forever because there were so many people there. Well, we finally left Mesa at around 3:00 because we had to be in Duncan before 7:00 for the baptism. I had to say the opening prayer, so we it wouldn't have been okay to be even just a little late. Me and Jory were driving 2 cars because my dad bought a car at the auction and was driving that to my brother's football game. Well anyway, we are almost to Superior and all of the traffic was completely stopped for miles. That lasted for almost an hour. So now we were really short on time. Well by the time we got to Thatcher it was 6:45. And it takes about 45 minutes to get there. By the time we got to Duncan it was 7:23. We missed the actual baptism. We felt really bad. I swear, I always have bad luck. Other than that it was a pretty good day, just very long and tiring!

How sweet that you were able to go to the temple and also attend Delanies baptism. I am sure she was so excited to see you and Jory there. It sounds like you have had fun.

Sorry, the internet is broken at our house so I couldn't write back until now. My mom has rheumatoid arthritis. What does your mother-in-law have?
