Week in Review

We had a few things going on this week so I thought I'd sum it all up in one post. On Wednesday I had my card group. The theme was "kid birthday" and I decided to do a tag instead of a card. I think it looks summery. Throughout the week I have also been working on redecorating our bedroom. No paint, but new bedding and accessories. This was our 10 year anniversary present to ourselves. I really love how it turned out. It is very calm and peaceful. Friday we went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House. It is such a beautiful temple and surrounding area. The kids were reverent and loved looking around. Ben did try to go in the baptismal font, but we got to him just in time. Saturday morning was the Children's Parade to start the Pioneer Day celebrations which will take place all week. The kids had to dress up as what they would like to be when they grow up. Bradley wore a tool belt and work gloves because he wants to be a builder. Kylie wore a smock because she wants to be an artist. Ben just went along for the ride although he'll probably be some sort of athlete. Dan took the kids swimming in the afternoon, while Grant and I took a long nap. It was a busy, but fun week.

Hey, I went to the open house on Friday too. Did you hear the 2 year old screaming? That was mine.

Your beautiful family picture in front of the new temple is a special example of the happiness a temple marriage can bring to you and others.
