The Pinsent house is a fun place to be. We eat lots of good food, watch funny movies, and we laugh a lot. Sometimes fights break out, sometimes there is some yelling, and even crying. Things are best when everyone is happy though. I visited with the family from Thursday May 1st until Tuesday morning May 6th. I had originally planned on going up to see City and Colour with Victoria, but a couple weeks before I also found out that Katherine would be coming home with Cecelia so that was a much added bonus. They didn't arrive until Saturday, but we started to have some fun any ways. Thursday night I went to the temple and it was a lovely experience. Not only did I receive personal inspiration, I got to see Savannah Webber go into the temple with her husband Brandon for the first time. It was so sweet and I could really see how much they loved each other and the gospel. After I got out of the temple, I went and picked up Jared. He came over and we watched 'The Amazing SpiderMan'. In the last week or so, I watched the older trilogy, and now that there is a new one in theatres, we watched this one because neither of us have seen it. Jared is a great guy and I love hanging out with him. He has a great way of putting things into perspective. I can probably say that it is from being a return missionary. It was nice to see him even though it was only for a short time.
Friday morning I talked with Nichla and I got ready for the day. I went to the mall by myself because I was looking for a couple things in particular. I have been looking for a new purse, and it has been impossible to find. I went into Payless as soon as I got into the mall, but I wasn't really sure why because I had already looked in ours at home. But then, I saw my perfect purse. I did look around some other stores but I ended up going back to get that one, and the added bonus was that the register rang it up on sale! I also braved the new Forever 21 store. It is a massive store and I got disappointed very quickly as I began shopping and realized that so many of the cute clothes were immodest. I was able to find a handful of tops and a couple dresses and I did end up buying a modest dressy top that I am pretty excited about. On my way home, I stopped at Wendy's and had a baked potato and chocolate frosty, it was a pretty delicious snack.
Eli came over around dinner time and we had crepes. They were so yummy. There was basically a fight to the death for the nutella, but once things calmed down, I smeared some all over mine with some bananas and honey. I also had a raspberry and yogurt crepe the next morning which was also great. In the evening, we watched some movies. 'The Perks of being a Wallflower' and 'About Time'. 'About Time' was super cute and I think I will have to watch it again sometime soon to really understand everything that happened. We paused the movie for a bit so Hannah Jane and I hung out together before she had to go to bed. She is getting so good at the piano, and she makes me wish I could play. She is also really goofy and is not very fond of smiling nicely for a picture. I also took some photos of Nichla's fresh wall downstairs. The old family photos are so sweet, although Katherine said she is going to do some updating while she is home.
