Weekend in Utah

I just returned from a weekend in Utah and while there I made a committment to my cute niece Jacky that I would once again start blogging here!
Who could turn down that cute little face!

I arrived in town in time to head over to Cali's school and watch the Faculty/Student Basketball game.  I didn't have a hard time spotting Cali!
No doubt she is the drama teacher!! Considering she hasn't played basketball since the 5th grade she didn't do too bad.  She made several shots and had fun.  There were lots of "Go Miss Wilkes" from the audience.

She even had her own fan club!
The main purpose of my trip was to attend a Family History retreat in Heber.  I got so inspired at Roots Tech that I wanted to keep the momentum going.  I attended the retreat with all these ladies.
The weekend was hosting by these two darling ladies.

We stayed in this darling retreat house owned by Crystal who was one of the hosts for the weekend.
Every bedroom was darling and I wanted to move right in.
We spent the weekend talking family history, how to do it  and how to share through social media and other ways.  I came home with a long to do list of things I want to do!
In addition to lots of info and inspiration there was yummy food and treats too,.

I left the retreat early on Saturday afternoon so I could attend the General Women's Broadcast with Tessa.  Cali was hosting a bridal shower later that evening so she didn't have time to go all the way to SLC with us.  We missed her.

Tessa and I met at Pizza Limone before the broadcast.  It is one of my newest favorite places to eat in Utah. 

It was fun to be able to attend the broadcast in the conference center with at least one of my daughters.  Thanks to Emily for sharing her tickets with us.

It was a beautiful spring evening on Temple Square.

After the broadcast we walked over to City Creek where we found a dress for Tessa to wear at graduation.  We then headed back down to Provo and stopped at Rita's for some yummy dessert.
