Spaghetti, a Luau, and Examples of Faith

Relatives from Denmark were on "holiday" here in Colorado and we were able to meet up with them for lunch on Friday at the Old Spaghetti Factory.  I'm embarrassed to say I didn't get any pictures of them, but we will see them again soon and I'll be camera ready.

We went to Steve and Sarah Vigil's wedding on Friday night.  It was a Luau theme and one of the best receptions I've ever been to (good cake + dancing = Mindi is happy).

Sierra and her friends got to practice their hula skills.

Kaia the flower child.  She swiped a few flowers from the tables as we were leaving and this is how I found her when I opened the door to get her out of the truck.

My friend, Kristi, her husband Tim, and their three children came to visit us today.  They are leaving soon for a mission in Iraq among the Kurdish people.  We were able to go to a meeting tonight to learn more about their mission.  I am amazed at their faith and dedication.  We are excited to support them through prayer while they are gone for many years to serve and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Kaia, Tristan, Sierra, Annie, Toby and Jessie enjoying a hardy meal.  Please notice in the above picture of the "adult lunch" that with Kristi's help I did not burn the grilled cheese.

You've got family in Denmark? My cousin has been serving his mission there for almost 2 years (coming home in April, I think). Do they know an Elder Free?
