Hotel Utah's 100th Anniversary Gala

Friday Night June 10th 2011 Marked the 100 years for Hotel Utah and Joseph Smith Memorial building. Scott and I were invited to a dinner Gala that evening. As it turned out we were the only senators there. Brad Dee and his wife Marsha from the House were the only ones from that body. Period dress was encouraged. Out of 800 invited....I'd say only about 24 couples dressed up. Most being the "host and hostesses" for the evening. But we thought dressing up was a blast!
Standing in front of a fabulous ice sculpture .
A better picture of the sculpture. It was truely amazing.
President Monson sitting on the main floor and beside him was the Govornor and his wife Jeanette (in the blue hat) are sitted next to him. President Monson spoke as well as Govornor Herbert and Mayor Becker of Salt Lake City. Our seats were above everyone else in the Mezzanine level. This will go down in our memory of special things that we did while Scott was in the Senate.

Memorial Weekend

Erik's family went to the cabin with Scott and I for Memorial weekend. It was pretty wet weather so two of the three days were spent inside. Cameron showed me his fabulous talent of putting together puzzles. He was finding pieces faster than I did. I was in awe at how well this almost 5 year old did.
Erik and Kelli told us that at his pre-school there was a puzzle contest and Cameron won hands down faster than any one else in the class. Sounds like to me he is taking after his dad in problem solving.
Finally on Monday morning the rain and Snow stopped long enough for some golf ball hunting. The kids enjoyed this probably more than Easter egg hunting.
sorting through their stash to find their favorite ball to take home. Notice Kate's wet pant bottoms from walkiing in the wet weeds.
