Down to the Utah Shakes on Friday. It was JLW's birthday and since I'm a convert to the gift-giving notion it is far superior to give an experience instead of a pair of pants, we all made the trek down south to see Les Miserables.
We missed our little Staples family terribly, of course.
Jean Valjean groupies.
The deep plot, characters and the powerful themes of grace, forgiveness, sacrifice, love, redemption, legalism, so beautifully woven into the story - it's hard not to be moved, right?
And it's hard not to want to be, to do, better.
To love another person
Is to see the face of God.
On Saturday we extended the fun and showed Jiao some of Zion National Park.
A few pics before my camera battery died.
