Twin Falls Temple Open House

We met my parents and my sister with her family in Twin Falls to go through the new temple.  It was beautiful!!  We loved feeling the spirit of the Lord's house, and it was nice to share it with our families.  Everything was immaculate, clean, and amazing.  There was a fun display in the gym in the church next door that followed the open house.  It was fun to see the things set up to help teach to plan of happiness.  What a blessing to be apart of something so eternal!!  There were so many volunteers that helped everyone through, everywhere you turned there was a happy face leading you in the right direction.  I am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  I love the blessings that come from the temples, and it gives me great peace to know that my marriage goes beyond death.  I can be with my family forever!!

This is me with my mom, my sister Polly (we look so much a like), and her daughter Megan.  We decided to take advantage of the day and went to the Shoshone Falls.  It was incredible!!  I had no idea that Twin Falls had so much to offer.  We had a fun day, and I'm glad my parents and sister made the effort to join us.

Good Old Home Fun!!

We finally found a use for our tub that we don't have enough hot water to fill for its real purpose, it's the reading zone.  The kids love to fill it with books, pillows, and blankets.  We had to stop using it as a race track, because there were too many injuries to the tub and the boys.
Ty is already 6 months!!  He is starting to sit up and we love making him smile and laugh.  Here is a picture of his lizard tongue, yes we think he'll have a long tongue like is brother Ben.
Here is Ben and his new bike.  He worked hard for it, earning money back from his whining cup that he had lost for whining.  He loves it and tries to ride it around our little cement block between the house and garage.  Alec has taken over his trike, and he thinks petaling with one foot is more effective than using both.
The fun new ride at our house!!  I started putting Ty in the laundry basket while I do laundry to help him sit up.  The boys picked up on that idea fast, and figured Ty shouldn't be the only one having fun.
