Today, Sunday, we went to watch General Conference on Temple Square. That´s what they call the temple and the grounds around it here. It includes the CCM (MTC), the visitor center (i think thats what it is), a big building where everybody can meet (like a stake center), and buildings where the missionaries live. So all the members met there to watch. They show conference all day long! They showed the priesthood session first, and then the two saturday sessions. I don´t know if they even show the sunday sessions here since we are 8 hours ahead. I always wondered what the Priesthood session was like and I finally got to experience it. It was AMAZING!!!! I loved it! That was the only that I was able to watch but I´m glad it was that one because I was able to listen to the whole first presidency speak! The only weird thing was that Britt and I were in a room full of missionaries. haha It was the English speaking room so I´m guessing they were all the newer missionaries that didn´t know Spanish yet.

Afterward we went outside and took a few pictures by the temple. It´s gorgeous! I can´t wait to go inside. But while I was out there I looked over to my right and I saw Elder Skyler Carr! haha I didn´t have the nerve to get his attention and say hello but I did quickly take a picture as he was walking away.

For dinner today at the Molina´s I was able to try three new things! Most of which was pretty good. So it was rice (kind of like rice-a-roni with spices and things) and then there was pieces of calimari and shrimp in it with whole clams on the side!!! ahh!! haha So there were the little tentacle looking things from the squid in it and all. Oh my! It really wasn´t too bad but just looking at it made me sick. But just like a missionary, I didn´t want to offend them so I just ate it right up! haha I wish I had a picture but that also would have been a little weird of me. Then i had this delicious fruit. I don´t know the name but ít looks like a watermelon on the outside, but not as big, and like a honeydew melon on the inside. It´s super sweet and super yummy. Well i´m going back to no pictures and limited internet for the week. So i hope you enjoy all the pictures and posts from today. love and miss you all!

So make sure you study hard because I need you. ha ha! Sounds like Spain is still a blast, I don't think that will ever change! Love the pics! You look so cute! P.S.S.
