A Last Minute Trip & New Friends

Military Man texted me that he would be in Salt Lake for the weekend.  Having not seen our son since before Christmas, there was no doubt in our mind where we would be for the April 1st weekend.  We had a lovely weekend, but it seems I'm trying to figure out my new camera.  Somehow my anti vibration got turned off and half the pictures of Military Man were blurry.

We visited Temple Square of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  It was beautiful and peaceful, such an awesome experience, UNTIL you step off of the Church's property.  That's were you see the "Mormon Protesters".  Really?  Why?  To me that's like protesting the Military funerals.  Rude and pointless.  We were verbally harassed and ridiculed.  That was not so fun.  My husband found one he wanted to get his picture taken with.  KT said the guy with the sign calling us "douche bags" was really nice.  Um, yeah sure...

Then we walked head on into a Trayvon Martin Hoodie March.  They were a peaceful sort, shoving us out into the street...

Just another day in the life of Salt Lake.  We really did have a good time, though.  Spending time with Military Man and his friends Kennedy, Karla and Fernanda was worth it.  ♥♥♥

  1. As a former military family myself, i am so glad you all got to spend time together. That time is priceless! As for the protesters -- yep, they need to get a life. Standing around carrying ugly signs does nobody any good. Blessings girl!


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
