April 29th - Day 4 - Sunday Activities

This has been another great day.  After breakfast, we headed into South Lake Tahoe to attend church.  The meetings started at 10:00.  It is a very small ward, but friendly and welcoming.  We enjoyed all the meetings and learned a few interesting tidbits.  Like, in the summer when it is really busy, they don't ask visitors to stand - they ask the ward members to stand - it is easier that way!  We also learned that in the winter, they are only able to keep one door open, because the snow is as deep as the roof.  We met some very nice people and enjoyed the wonderful spirit we felt in their meetings.  We were the only visitors today, so we got all the attention.  As is often the case, they were very interested in the story of our group.

After church, we headed back to the condos and had dinner.  Shirley had a chicken, alfredo sauce, noodles dish that she she prepared.  We added a salad, green beans, and french bread.  We spent a long time sitting around the table discussing all sorts of interesting subjects.  The meal ended with some cheesecake.

We basically then moved to the living area, where we watched the DVD, "The Seventeen Miracles," about the Willey and Martin handcart companies.  It was very good.  We talked and laughed away the rest of the evening, getting into tons of the childhood memories stories.  Much laughter!

It was a great sabbath day!
