Oh, The Places I Went...

I put a lot of miles on our cars over the past 30 days. Last night I drove to West Haven and I realized that it was the third time in the past month that I drove to Weber County. I then thought of all the places I visited in the month of June. I saw a lot of places, saw a lot of friends, and gained a lot of memories.

First, my nephew got married. Even though the ceremony took place in Salt Lake City (and I work daily in Salt Lake City...), it was still an amazing experience.

At the end of that week I packed up most of my family and we drove to Moab, Utah. If you haven't been, you need to go. I helped out a friend put on a triathlon. It was a blast!

On Father's Day I drove to North Ogden (an incredibly beautiful place...) and spent time with missionary friends that I've known for over 25 years. I wish I could spend more time with those wonderful people.

A week later we traveled to Draper, Utah and watched a friend perform in Annie. Tons of fun, and, once again, good memories.

This last week I did the most traveling. On Wednesday I drove to Ogden to help celebrate my friend and neighbor's retirement.

On Friday--just two days ago--I drove to Provo, Utah and spent an evening with complete strangers. I was invited to a night of dinner, treats and good conversation with other LDS bloggers. I had an amazing time. And the house was located directly across the street from the MTC--lots of memories came flooding back when I saw those buildings.

Which brings me to last night. We drove to a town west of Ogden so my kids could attend a cast party for the Shakespeare play they did in the spring.

In June 2013 I took and average of 30 pictures and videos a day, 897 in total, and I believe I blogged about almost all these trips. Adding up all the miles I put on our cars would hurt my brain so I won't do it. Even though I logged a lot of miles, it was worth it. I had a great month.


  1. Wow! You are living life, my friend. It's good you are recording it all down!

    1. Thanks Leanne! I'm glad I did, too. Let's see what July will bring!

  2. You did have a very busy month but obviously a very enjoyable one. It's fantastic these days to be able to take photographic memories and videos so easily and relatively cheaply.

    1. I completely agree! The cost of all those pictures using film staggers me--good thing I don't have to think about it... ;)
