Sister Lewis heads to Orem

2016-8-9 Trip to Orem (1)

I received permission to travel quickly to Orem and back for our daughter’s reception Wednesday, 10 August.  It was held in our backyard.  While President Lewis drove to Omak, I flew over Mt. Ranier, to Seattle, then to SLC.

It was fast and fun trip.  Highlights were meeting some missionary parents and family members.  Here are the Harmans:2016-8-10 Claire's Orem Reception (32)2016-8-10 Claire's Orem Reception (34)And the Stedmans:2016-8-10 Claire's Orem Reception (43)2016-8-10 Claire's Orem Reception (51)2016-8-10 Claire's Orem Reception (53)And here is Sis.
