I Love to see the Temple

Sunday I wanted to take the kids to the temple to walk around.
I have been doing more work lately and I feel that it is important for them to feel the spirit that is there before they can enter.
We were in for a real treat.
We walked to the fountain (always a favorite).
We looked at all the flowers.
We showed the kids where the door is to the baptismal font.
We saw a lot of bees in the trees.
And it smelled so beautiful.
When it was time to go, everyone wanted to stay.
Including the one who didn't want to come.
So good...

The bees in the trees had major pollen on their legs.

Warmer Weather this Way Comes

We have had quite a warm spring which followed a mild winter.
This weather as well as the shining sun has made working outside so wonderful.
This is what I have been up to:

Last Thursday I started digging up the the south garden area (yeah, I know, a tiller would have been much faster, but it was what I had to work with).

Then I worked on the north area.

That night I planted a few things.
Lettuce, radishes, and peas.

I wanted to make some cute markers.
Looking on pinterest, the thing  I liked the best were the spoons.

So this is what I did.
I went to DI and got a bunch for 10 cents each.

Yeah, I know, I need more practice.

But some of them turned out okay.

And here is the first of our square foot gardens (minus the boxes).
I got the main idea here.

Spring (and summer) is in the Air

Saturday we saw this:

So what could this mean for the family?

Well, this:

We set up the sprinkler up under the trampoline.

The kids had a blast.

Day one of the California Trip

I drove to Las Vegas to meet Julia and the Round Valley High School Ambassadors and Choral.

When I got there I couldn't find the place we were staying at. Then the bus had already left to go to the Venetian.

So I finally found my way over to where they were. (I almost forgot, we saw a guy dressed up like Buble Bee from Transformers.)

We walked around the mall for a bit then headed to the Venetian. It's a hotel with stores restaurants and also.rivers that gondolas carry people on.

The Blue Man Group performance was there as well. They were amazing. It was so fun. We sat on the front row hoping to get splashed on.

But we didn't. After we went back to the church to sleep (10:00). Pin It
