We spent Labor Day at Blue Springs - it was wonderful! Matt and Raquel came over, and several families from the ward went as well. The water was freezing! But once we caught our breath, and believe me, after jumping in it took a minute or so, it was actually refreshing. There is a long walkway through heavy vegatation that leads to the top of the springs where you can jump in. There's a large swimming hole, and if you're cave certified, you can scuba down quite a ways. We took goggles and a snorkle, and it took me a while to get used to not breathing through my nose. I'm claustrophobic, and it took a few minutes to get the hang of breathing through my mouth only. Matt and Lynn rented canoes and took the kids out in another area and they all saw alligators and manatees.
The Bishop's family went, and her daughter that is just younger than Tierra rode with us. Three little girls sitting in the back seat means lots of laughing! After we got back Beckie (Bishop's wife) invited us over to their house for dinner (yummy Indian fry bread) with the missionaries. One of the Elders father has a slaughtering business in American Fork, so we heard lots of stories about animals being slaughtering!
I'm off now to run to pick up a large food storage order from Walton Feed, that's coming to our Stake Center.
