A Temple in Kansas City!

Words cannot describe the experience of taking our children to the Kansas City Temple Open House.  I was so excited, but the sweet moments were even better than I had thought.  Tender, sweet memories of sharing the inside of the temple with our family.  How grateful I am for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the blessings of the temple!

Ben and I loved our time in Italy, thanks to wonderful parents who took care of some very happy grandchildren!! They loved their time with Grandma and Grandpa just as much as we loved our time in beautiful Italy. Thanks, Mom and Dad!

Sweet Autumn Days

Ben has taken advantage of the awesome fall weather to take the boys on some long (8 mile) bike rides on the trails.

Handsome boys! They look like they are standing in front of a picture! I swear its REAL!

What would Fall be with our a few trips to our favorite Cider Mill? The Cider slushes were our favorite this year!

And Brooke has loved her first Fall. She fits right in with whatever we are doing, she makes us laugh and smile every day! Oh how we have loved this sweet season!

Picnics, Lemonade Stands, and Baby Brooke!

Oh, the joys of summer time! We are loving our summer sun and extra time to extra fun things! We are enjoying every little bit of Cousin Kaylie time as we can get, we are excercising our entrepenurial skills (not spelling skills) and loving our Baby Girl!!

Any takers?

Oh how we love her, and can't believe she is 5 months old!

Sundays are our days to dress up!

Temple Run Fun

A great day, last Saturday as we ran and ran and ran! Ben and Krissy Brooke ran a 5k together, I lagged (just a little) behind. Scott, Kate and Brett each ran a 100 yard dash AND a mile run. It was wonderful. A great way to spend a Saturday and a great way to celebrate the temple-to be coming soon!
