Trip to Mesa

We recently took trip to Mesa to see David's Uncle Paul and his wife, Melba. It had been a long time since we had seen them and David also wanted to help Uncle Paul with some family history. They live across the street from the temple, so we took the opportunity to go there and also to the visitor's center where we saw the Joseph Smith video and the beautiful Christmas lights. While were sitting around talking one afternoon,Uncle Paul taught me how to make his famous hats so I could come home and teach Ellen. He's made over 1000 of them to give away to family and friends. We also took them out to lunch to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.
David and I are in front of the the visitor's center reflecting pool.

Aren't the lights pretty shining in the water?

Our last evening there, we went to Organ Stop Pizza with Paul and Melba and some of their family. It was quite an experience. This guy sits on a stage in a huge room with a balcony and plays requests from the audience. The organ also controls lights, mirror ball, puppet stages, other musical instruments, flags etc... It was amazing. I asked Melba if she was dying to get up on stage and play the organ. She was.
