My first GenCon

In April of 2013, Kendall and I were lucky enough to take a trip to Utah with Kendall's mom to see General Conference for the first time! General Conference is a bi-annual conference held by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where we are able to hear the prophets and apostles of our church speak. Not only is General Conference an amazing part of our year, but Utah is also amazingly beautiful and one of my favorite place to visit...even if I hate the 10 hour drive there.

Our first stop was a little town about an hour and a half outside of the Salt Lake City area called Manti, where Kendall's aunt and uncle live. There we visited with family, played with Otto on the farm, and saw the most beautiful temple my eyes have witnessed since becoming a member.

Otto definitely belongs on a farm...we'll get to that later!

Next, we drove up to Spanish Fork, UT, about 40 minutes outside of Salt Lake, where we stayed with Kendall's cousin, visited with family, and visited with Kendall's favorite mission buddy, Colin, and his wife. We had tickets to both the General Conference session and Kendall had tickets to the Priesthood session, which is for the men of the church who have received the priesthood.

Utah in the Spring is breath-taking -- I miss it so much! We are so lucky to have amazing family and friends around us that share these experiences with us.
