I have now met the parents of Race W Ashby. :] And they weren't scary like he kept telling me they would be. Let me tell you, that was a relief! Race does like to exaggerate things though so I should have known that they wouldn't be as scary as he was making them sound. We drove down to Pomerene, AZ on Thursday night and got in around three in the morning. We got to sleep in on Friday and then we woke up and went to the Gila Valley Temple open house. The temple is absolutely gorgeous! And the Spirit that is felt in it is amazing. I can't wait until I can go into the temple to make covenants with my Heavenly Father and then someday be sealed to my husband for time and all eternity. (Sadly, I do not have picture of the temple because they are on Race's camera so I will have to put them up later). Before and after going to the temple in Thatcher, AZ Race and I visited his brothers and some of his nieces and nephews. It was a lot of fun meeting everyone and hanging out with all the cute kids! On Saturday Race and I spent the day in Tucson with his parents. We went to Sabino Canyon and rode the tram around and took some fun pictures and just spent time talking with his parents and enjoying the good weather. We also spent all our time in the car reading. Race bought three books based on the TV show Psych and we have been reading those together for the past couple of weeks. It's super fun to just sit and relax and read books together. Although I don't think that Race always enjoys reading with me because I like to talk to him about what I read and so he doesn't get very much reading done when I am around. Oops! I am working on restraining myself from saying all the comments I want to though.
Here are some pictures of Race and I with his parents in Sabino Canyon. :]
