Utah Trip: Mini Reunion

We stayed at my brother Yu and wife Jamiee's place the following two nights.  My brother Ken is finishing up his MBA and will go back to Tokyo soon, so we had a small reunion with his family too.  It was so much fun to catch up with my brothers and their wives.  Asha was a popular big cousin, and played with cousins Sho and Caryn pretty much the whole time.  The pictures are from our trip to Temple Square on Sunday after church.

Brother Ken and me.  I am wearing a dress I found at a yard sale in Salt Lake for $2.  Alison took the size XL dress apart and resized it to fit me.  It deserves a post on it's own.  I will do that once the dress comes out of the laundry.

We saw Scott's cousin, Angela, who is serving a mission there.  
Thank you, Yu and Jamiee for hosting a great reunion!

I'm so glad you made it there and it was a beautiful day! I still want to take my girls there to take their pictures by all the flowers.

That's cool that you got to see Ange!

Allison said...

I'm glad you guys got to see Ange. Did you have to track her down or did you just run into her?

Marie' said...

We started asking around once we realized that she might already be there. Everybody just said she should be around, so we kept walking and eventually found her in the visitor center. It was so fun to see her as a missionary.

Marie! glad you found us and now I, you. We were surprised to hear about your move in the Christmas card this year (we didn't get one out this year). We'll miss you in CA, though we haven't been there in a while.

Your trip looks fun, and the easter dress is amazing.

Oh, and yes, the washing machine bangs and rocks like it's going to kill someone if it's unbalanced. What's your secret?

What great pictures! Temple square pictures always turn out nice - looks like you had a great time with your family!
