We are still wearing our missionary badges because we have not been released. We hope that we get released this weekend.
We left at 9:30 for Ogden. We were a half hour late leaving because Sister Fanning was moving so slow.
We went to see Diana, our adopted daughter from England. We have not seen her for over three years. She was visiting for a week to attend a friend’s wedding. We were so excited that our schedule worked out so we could see her. We were just disappointed that her family was not able to come. Her husband has not been well, so we are concerned about him.
We went to lunch at the Greenery Restaurant at Rainbow Gardens. There was a very large menu, but Sister Fanning and Diana ordered the same thing. We laughed about that. We had so much fun catching up on people from the Ward in England, her family, and things that she was doing. We wandered around the gift shop and chatted some more. We drove down to the Ogden Temple and wandered around the grounds. We had not seen it since it was remodeled.
We drove back to where she was staying, but no one was home. We went to see Elder Fanning’s sister and her husband. They were getting ready to go to Salt Lake to serve as hosts in the Joseph Smith Building. They have been serving there as service missionaries for 13 years. We talked for about 10 minutes. We then went to Farr’s Ice Cream for a treat and talked some more.
We took Diana back to her friend’s home and were surprised to see that we had spent five and a half hours with her. It did not seem that long.
We stopped to get some drinks and then drove home. We got home about 7:30. We spent some time unpacking again. We just keep unpacking bins, and they seem to be multiplying.
