Just over a week ago, Brandon sweetly surprised me! He and Tyler Schenck had arranged for my dear friend Kelli to come out and visit me for Mother's day. It was the best surprise ever. Kelli flew out on Thursday. We did lots of shopping, gave Kelli a taste of home here, and spent a night in Chicago. I have missed her so much. On Sunday, I took her back to the airport. We had such a great time. I only wished she could have stayed longer. She is a priceless friend that I am so lucky to have!

This is where the first Book of Mormon was published.
This is a replica of J.S. home. It was built on the old foundation just like the original.
It was a cold and rainy day but we did it all anyway. The Hill Comurah is only a couple miles from the J. S. farm. We couldn't believe how steep the hill was. I wish I could post more pictures. It was so beautiful and special.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

Our favorite part it of our day was this real submarine called the U-505. This is the only submarine that the U.S. captured from the Germans in WWII. It has an incredible story. This sub was brought down through the St. Lawrence river from the Atlantic Ocean. The museum then built around it. You can also take tours of the inside of it. It is a huge, spectacular sight!
