Temple trip

Friday we all piled in the car and headed to Gila Valley for the Temple open house. It was beautiful! After we left the Celestial room Heather told me "When we went in that last room I was really cold and then I got warm, all over my body." What a great blessing to help her recognise the Spirit. It made the six hour round trip sooo worth it.
I am so excited to have two more temples built in the next few years so close to home. What an awesome expeirence for my children.

I also enjoyed the trip. It brought back so many memories of driving to my grandparents house. Lots has changed but the topography hasn't, it was a beautiful day in the high desserts.

FHE Book of Mormon Party

We thought a celebration was in orer. We finished the Book of Mormon in our early morning scripture study. Going out to eat is a rare and special treat for the kids. This is one of our favorite places. It is a gyro shop that sells Thrifty ice cream. But we mostly love the guy in the back of the photo. It is a huge hot dog and the bun is painted like the American flag.

Jane block

This block was simple, so I thought. But you can clearly see the wonkiness. I still have a lot to learn about dealing with the bias.
