And even more Portugal

The first photo is of some Roman ruins in the town of Evora. The second is a creepy cathedral in the same town called the Cathedral of the bones. There is a story behind this one. The last two are of the beach in Portimao. Absolutely beautiful!!!

And More Portugal

Seeing these two families in Castelo Branco was definitely the highlight of the trip for me. Jeff had a hand in their conversions and their families are doing great! How amazing too see the work of the Lord move forward face to face. Even though the language divided us, the Spirit was definitely there. We Love you Diaz and Cruz families!!!!

Portugal was Awesome!!!

We landed in Lisbon and just took off from there! We traveled almost the whole country in two weeks but it was Amazing!!!! The first photo is of a palace in Sintra it is amazing that all of these structures are still standing after thousands of years. You can definitely see the aging process but the fact that they are still so beautiful after all this time is truly astounding. The next photo is of a famous cathedral in Batalha, I have many more pictures of this but you'll have to come visit me to see them. The king and queen of Portugal are buried there and they have carved statues of them on top of their tomb. Next photo is on top of a cliff overlooking the town of Nazare. And the last one, of course we had to keep an eye out for the Elders while we were there. We found these elders in Figueira Da Foz. We caught them a little off gaurd as you can imagine. One Elder is from California and the other is from Utah.

Weekend in Deer Valley

We had our little end of tax season and anniversary getaway in Park City and Deer Valley last weekend. We stayed at the Stein Erikson Lodge. Wow, pretty posh place, they even made our fire for us. The first photo is the view out our room. Yup right at the top of the mountain and yup, still plenty of snow. The room was great and very warm and cozy, the jetted tub was HUGE. Just a note, red rose petals stain on white sheets, maybe I should've known that but I didn't. We had lots of fun shopping in Park City and we met some friends and ate at PF Chang's! OHHHH so yummy!!!!
