Spring Break 2013

Over Spring Break this year, we decided to do college visits and site seeing. Ben will be leaving on his mission November 2013 and Justin will be leaving summer of 2015, possibly before Ben gets home. This was our last opportunity to take both boys at the same time.
We took the I-80 route on the way to Salt Lake City. It was a long drive--especially Nebraska. We have some lovely panoramic shots of the endless fields.

We did find an amazing truckstop on our way west with 5 semi's inside the building and several had trailers attached just for display purposes. It was enormous!

Once we arrived in Salt Lake City, we went exploring.

On Sunday, we were able to attend Music and the Spoken Word, which was held in the tabernacle. It was amazing!

We went to church in the Joseph Smith Memorial building with my Uncle Edgar and his wife Kathy who were serving a mission in the Church Office building doing genealogy research.

We were able to tour BYU in Provo with Reid Taylor as our tour guide and host. We were also able to go to Rexburg and visit BYU Idaho as well as spend some time with Jacob & Nia Turner.

On our way back home, we took I-90. We stopped in the mountains of Wyoming, the Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Devil's Peak Devil's Tower and more on our way home.

It was quite the adventure for our family and a great way to spend time with our two oldest boys.

Ben will be attending BYU Idaho when he gets home from his mission.
