Family Time in Manti

With my favorite little bro (he's my only brother, but I assure you, if I had more brothers, he'd be my favorite one) going on his mission in one month from today (I can barely believe it's coming so soon!) the fam gathered at the Manti temple for some temple time. That temple is amazing. It's seriously so pretty inside. It looks like what I thought Logan would look like...but they thought the 70's (merely a guess) was prime time to gut all that beautiful character out of the Logan temple and "update it." Okay...that's a big tangent and really I think the Logan temple is lovely and the outside is so unique and it will always be my favorite. But Manti was splendid. And there was a really nice elderly couple who were obviously regulars who literally took Adam and I by the hands and led us to the dressing rooms and such.

After temple time, Aliese's friend, Kristen, took some photogs of our family. Here's a little snippet if you're interested in knowing what my family looks like...but if you don't know any of us (including me), you should refrain because that's maybe a little creepy. Here's the link to Kristen's photo blog. While she's a lovely girl and the pics are adorable, I still strongly endorse the greatness of greats, Carlos...found here.

I like the pic of me and Adam...we look young and in love (which is convenient...cuz we are...try not to gag). Also, I like the look on Jacob's face while he's doing the Jag train...I'm holding still because I was laughing too much to continue Jag training...J-A-G-U-A-R-S. I also like the one with my whole big fam...the green one, not the church clothes one. Kneeling makes my chub look even chubbier...and frankly, we don't need more of that around here.

Thanks Kristen for putting up with us.

Highlight of the weekend: Refusing to put my heels back on and running with very high knees, across the melty hot asphalt, from grass patch to park strip, so as to not scorch my piggies. What a dope!

I love the Manti temple as well. Mike and I have been wanting to go there, but it just never works out. It makes me sad that they changed the Logan as well, but I guess it served a purpose. Glad you had some good family time.
