a couple of TEMPLE trips...

On Thursday, January 7, 2010, Talon came up to Orem and had dinner and went to the Timpanogos temple with Justin and I. It was such a great night. The spirit was strong and we all felt so happy and it showed- even after we left His holy house. After Justin and I went on a little drive with Talon up to the MTC to show him where his is going to be dropped off at and fun little things like that. I think it made it a lot more real for Talon, which in turn made him a little nervous, but also more excited at the same time! In-N-Out was our last stop, where we all had shakes (the boys also had a hamburger!) and then Talon went on his way back to West Point, before it got too late. What a fun night to spend together!

As the day gets closer for Talon to go into the MTC our family strives harder and harder to spend more and more time with Talon...

And so...on Saturday, January 9, 2010, we all went to the Salt Lake Temple together- Talon, Justin and I, and our parents. (BreAnne and Adam wanted to be there too, but in the end they weren't able to make it. :( ) Our time at the temple was peaceful and relaxing as we were able to feel the strong spirit that is always there. And although I am sad that I didn't remember to get pictures outside of the temple with us all together, these pictures of all of us (even Hunter and Maddie!) at Chili's after getting back from the temple come pretty close to showing just what a great night we had.
