Blitz trip to Oakland
Our friend received her endowment on Saturday! I was privileged to be her escort for the temple. She chose to receive her endowment in the Oakland temple (closest big temple to where we live). It only took 5 and 1/2 hours to drive down. We left at 5 a.m. The session was at 12:15 but we had to be there at 10:45 for all of the preparations for her endowment. We didn’t leave Oakland until about 6 p.m. and we got home even later. By the time the rental car was returned and we were able to lay down, it was 12:30 a.m. the next morning. It was a super long day!! (And the poor bishop had meetings at 7 a.m.) By the time I was driving to return the car, I made some pretty bad driving decisions. I realized, yes, fatigue while driving is almost like drinking and driving. Sheesh! But we made it and then Drew drove us home and I slept.
We at dinner at Red Robbin. I had never eaten there before! The fry sauce was delicious! It was a super fun trip! We loved hanging out with Richard and Dani (his fiance) and we are super excited for their wedding in July! Slim, Tams, and Johnathan are all planning on coming back into town for the wedding. I think that is when we are going to redo our family photos too! It will be super busy!
But here are a few photos of our trip—all of Richard and Dani, of course!
