|Here is where we stayed in

|You should see her trick shots!|
|Tad, please leave the kitchen
and get Susie.
We ate good!
|View from a park in our territory|
|A nice home on the street we worked.|
|Another one. Almost every home and yard in our territory was gorgeous.|
|Sandy, UT. View from Little
Cottonwood Canyon (coming down the mountain from the Ski Resorts).
Shannon Brady got a snowball and brought it back to the house and put in the freezer after passing it around so everyone could touch the Utah snow souvenir. Next day Evelyn gets a glass of juice and puts this "piece of ice" she found in the freezer in her drink. Oops! (Don't worry, Shannon recovered it) I don't think the snowball will make it back to El Cajon, though.
|Nice river coming down from the mountains|
|Sounds soo nice|
|Shonna places four Teach books this morning.|
|Only 2 for John. But, beautiful day!|
|At the Kingdom Hall in Sandy, UT. 15 of our group of 19.|
|Tad preparing our group for the meeting.|
|Bible Quiz game.|
|After service we go to La Caille, winery/restaurant in gorgeous paradisiacal surroundings. Geese, peacocks, bunnies, roosters roam the area. A river and stream run through the property.|
|I've got a spot for our house close by here. Almost like being in the Paradise! One young sister enjoyed it here so much she didn't want to go back to our house.|
|See Treena for video of this swan.|
|A "one-hole" golf course next to the vineyards.|
|Back at our house, Kaleah putting in the last piece of our puzzle.|
|Our last day in service. Sue and Tonya.|
|Why is everyone so happy in service? Maybe because Jehovah is the "happy God"? And.. people here listen. You can actually have many Bible discussions. Is Tad leading a safari?|
|John captures a wild leopard.
Our groups service report for our visit to Sandy:
Studies? to be determined. Several real possibilities.
|After service, we take the kids to the Raging River water park in Salt Lake City.|
|Let's hit the slides!|
|Shannon and Terran heading for the "wave pool".|
|John half way down the slide and his safe landing|
|The kids do not want to leave, but Water Park is closing at 7:30.|
