This summer I made friends with a Russian Orthodox Jew named Zelig. In two weeks I got to learn more about the Jewish faith than in a lifetime of casual outside observation. It was an unexpected blessing to be able to connect with someone so passionate about a religion so unknown to me. Zelig let me observe the Jewish Sabbath with him and visit several synogogues throughout Brooklyn. I also got a private tour of the Museum of Jewish Heritage where he is a guide. Now that I'm back in Provo I'm taking a class that compares Judaism to Mormonism to further my exploration.

Today I went on a walk through Cascade Springs with my three amazing nephews. Unfortunately my batteries died before I was able to get a good nature shot. I did, however, get this picture of them at their finest. My poor sister had to keep them from diving into the water.

This weekend I watched conference in four different places: Ty's house in Provo, the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in SLC, the Assembly Hall at Temple Square, and at John's house in Park City. It was a awesome event.
This here is my Venezuelan friend Jhonny. (Yeah, that's where the "h" goes.) He drove out from Wyoming for the big event.
On Thursday I got to listen to a discussion in the MoA with Milton Glaser, the designer who came up with this famous logo. While there I learned that he did the design pro bono for a tourism campaign he thought would only last a few weeks. Poor guy. I can only imagine how much he wishes he was getting royalties now.
