Time is flying and school is already back in full swing. 

Buuut I have blog posts to catch up here I go!


While IN Jerusalem, plans and preparation for a "JERU RENUNION" were already in the works.

Luckily I was able to get my work hours covered so I was able to join in on this splendid-fun couple days at the lake with my jeru friends. 

I had the pleasure of traveling to Bear Lake with my wonderful Jerusalem roommates :)
T-Bone volunteered to drive and even though her car's air conditioning was broken we had a blast chatting (well..yelling so we could hear each other over the open windows/sunroof) and singing along at the top of our lungs to T-Swift's new song :)
(If you don't know what song i'm talking about click here.)

Bonnie wanted to stop in Brigham City at a ice cream shop that is one of her dad's favs called "Peach City." In order to get to said ice cream shop we drove right next to the Brigham City Temple which is  currently giving tours since it has not yet been dedicated. 

On a spur of the moment decision we ended up in the temple parking lot, digging through our bags, and pulling out clothes that were appropriate for the temple. Next thing we knew we were waiting in line to go inside!!

It was so fun being able to walk through this beautiful building with some of my favorite people in the whole world.

(These photos were not taken by me, the one on the right is from a FOX article about the temple so I'm assuming it's okay to see more pictures go here.

After a few hours there and then some milkshakes from Peach City we were again on our way!

Bear Lake was SO MUCH FUN. 

It was great to see so many familiar JC faces again. It's amazing how much we feel like a family. 

And nothing says 'family' like a little friendly competition ;) 

During the few days we participated in some OLYMPIC GAMES including: 

Jerusalem Trivia
(questions ranged from Name all the faculty children at the JC to What was the Mesha Stele and why was it significant?)
and my personal favorite:
Synchronized Swimming 

The 2 hours of preparation before the competition (and horrible red lipstick) paid off when, "Room 408" (Danielle, Alyssa, Bonnie, and I) received the GOLD medal!!!

I left the reunion early to get to a certain special person's wedding reception (see post to follow shortly), but I was SO happy that it worked out for me to go and spend some time with these wonderful people: 

Oh what a life I live!
