Our Temple Trip


This weekend we went to Atlanta, GA to visit the temple. We went with my mom and the three boys-what were we thinking? The boys, Mom, not you! Anyway, we left Friday at 2:00 pm and came home Saturday at 4:30. PJ didn't take a nap the whole time we were gone, and Draven & Brody were less than delightful. I can't really blame them...I felt like kissing the ground when we finally got out of the car for good.

But. It was a wonderful trip. It always is when we visit the temple, and it's been too long since we took that kind of trip. My mom was able to get the paperwork ready for my grandmother, who died in July 2006, and I was able to participate in doing her work. What a blessing. Now maybe she's teaching my grandfather-he's stubborn and probably needs her help! We took pictures, as you can see, and I just didn't want to leave. I love being that close to the spirit! Plus, we finally got a family picture...

Cute Family picture! I wish we would have gone with you, that would have put me into labor for sure because I would have been 3 hours away! I am glad you went though, I love the temple.

Okay. You have seriously inspired me. We live TWENTY MINUTES from the temple. TWENTY - on a day with traffic! And we don't make the effort to get there very often. Thanks for the kick in the rump! :O)

The eighty's songs are great - bringing back memories of our summer outings to Norris Park and swimming pool. You were't much older than Draven.

Now you're making memories with your boy's to cherish.

Keep up the good work! It won't be any time before you'll be reaching up to Draven for a hug.
