I had my first "girls' day" since we moved to Utah. I have made some new friends from church. Jerri and her daughter Katie. Jerri and her husband David have been so gracious to my family. They had us over for lunch after church one Sunday and Jerri and I have kept up with each other over email during the winter months that kept me from attending church regularly. After trying a few times, we finally were able to get together and spend the day doing what most girls love to do; shop, visit, and eat lunch out.
Jerri took us to a really fun site called "Gardner Village". It was a polygamist compound in the late 1800's. There were 12 wives and they each had their own home. The main business was the flour mill. Below are pics of the water wheel, still working. The compound has been turned into a restaurant (in the main building) and the smaller buildings are shops.
Katie looking at the water. There were some large Koi in the pond, but they didn't translate well on film. The ducks, however, were very photogenic.
It's so nice to have new friends and be able to start making new memories. It helps make it feel more like home.
