Amidst the last couple weeks of packing, we also made sure to visit lots of people and do lots of fun things before we left.

We drove away from our home at Heritage Halls on August 2nd. It was a 3 day drive to Minnesota, but we were glad to pull into Minot, North Dakota after 2 days on the road so we could spend the weekend with Garrett and Krystal's family (as well as my mom, who was also visiting them. It was fun seeing Sophia and Daniel interact - mostly Daniel stealing toys she was playing with or her pulling his hair, and I can not believe Sophia used to be as tiny as sweet little Makayla!

|It is a lot harder to take a picture of 3 kids than you might think. Well, Makayla was easy, but Daniel and Sophia weren't too excited about the whole process.|

|This represents half of our family! 2 kids and one parent are missing. Luckily, we get to see them in about 2 weeks for Tyler's wedding!!!|

(I just noticed that the picture has also always been taken in front of a door....)
The day before we left Provo, my cousin, Sean, took us on a tour of the brand new BYU Broadcasting Building. It was really awesome to see the sets and all of the behind-the-scenes work.

|but it's not really a kitchen! It's a TV set!|
|Sophia is ready for her close-up!|
|I'd never seen this set, but apparently it has won a lot of awards. Does anyone else recognize it from byutv?|
