Regional Stake Conference
So most of you are probably got to go to the big regional stake conferences that was telecasted to most of Utah county on Sunday. It was really good. Elder Jensen from the 70's spoke, then Pres. Monson's only daughter, then President Packer and then President Uchtdorf. Anyway, it was nice. Because it was being teleprompted to all most all stake centers, and because we were running a little behind, we just went to the big stake center that is at the end of our cul-de-sac even though it is in a different stake. They had opened up the stake Presidents office, the high council mans room and the Stake Presidents waiting area for children and had a T.V. in there. If was nice, but halfway through President Uchtdorfs talk, while I was grabbing Hyrum, Kaitlyn turned around on the couch she was on saw a fire alarm that said pull down and she pulled it. All of the lights in the building started flashing and speakers started saying "there is an emergency in the building, please use the closest exit," or something like that. The place was packed so I went out to make sure people new it was a false alarm while the clerk or someone frantically came running to try to find the key he needed to turn the thing off. Thanks goodness nobody knew us. We left after that.
Kaitlyn was petrified and ended up blaming me by saying that if I had of got us there on time we would have been in the big room with all of the people and she never would have seen that dumb fire alarm. It was rather embarrassing. She fell asleep in the car later that day and when I went to carry her into Grandma's house she kept mumbling in her sleep, "I didn't mean to do it, I didn't mean to pull it..." (Also you might not really want to mention this blog to her since I asked her if she wanted to tell Grandma and Grandpa about it while we were over there and she said, "No, it was much to scary." And then later asked me not to remind her of it,like I did at Grandma's and Grandpa's house, ever again).
