Today we went to Chatsworth, Bakewell, Derbyshire, England with the couples Gibbs, Wilson's and Brinckerhoffs. We met at our flat about 10 o'clock. The Gibb's are from Orem. She taught dance at BYU and her husband owned a car dealerships over there years. The Wilson's are from Mesa. Our daughters Natalie Wilson Hatch and Bobbi Allen Randall are best friends. Now we are becoming best friends. The Brinckerhoff's are from Utah. They knew President Lindley before they came on their mission. This is their second marriage and they have nine kids between them. All of them are wonderful couples.

Chatsworth is where they filmed pride and prejudice with Kara Knightly. I was wishing my girls could have been with me as they would've loved it. It was raining when we got here so we all took our umbrellas except Elder Allen. "Real men don't need umbrellas" he said. Yes look at him now.

We walked through Chatsworth as they played loving music just like in the movie. When we got through it had stopped raining. It was a lovely afternoon after the rain to walk through the gardens. We ate our lunch in the car because all the seats outside were wet. While sitting there these girls came by that were LDS. The place is full of people and we have to park right next to a Mormon. Small world.

We had Vanessa baptism to go to and we got home just in time. She had some problems getting permission from her mother to be able to get baptized but it all worked out. Miracles do happen.
