Enjoying a Haboob in Good Company

 Tonight was a wonderful night in Arizona.  
A mini Haboob arrived in the sweaty city of Gilbert!  
It didn't cool the city off any, but it made everything super windy 
and even brought some rain.
So we celebrated and had snow cones and Chick-fil-A waffle fries for dinner
and we even braved sitting outside, too.
Our snow cones literally melted before our eyes.
In 1876, under the direction of Brigham Young
my great great great great grandfather, Daniel W. Jones founded
and established Lehi/Mesa, Arizona.
I'm still not sure why.  It's like living in hell.
I'll change my tune in a few months (like maybe in March)
because it's like heaven on earth then!
But part of me has a little Arizona blood inside, and not just
because I married an Arizona boy.  
Because of my incredible ancestry.
Daniel W. Jones is also why Spencer and I are related.
Also, today I went to Deseret Book to grab a few missionary essentials for
my favorite Sister Nielson in Brazil
and found my good old book, Heaven is Here next to the Prophet,
Russell M. Nelson's face and a book about him written by Sherri Dew.
I'm in good company.
