Milk-Spill “Y”

As Chloe was eating breakfast she called to me and said, “Hey Dad – you gotta come see this! It looks like a Y!”

Swim Lessons

“I think there is something, more important than believing: Action! The world is full of dreamers, there aren’t enough who will move ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision.”

Ogden Temple Tour

“13 Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.”
Psalms 92:13

Tonight we were invited by my brother-in-law, Chad Brown, to take a tour of the newly remodeled Ogden Temple.  Chad, who works for The Richardson Design Group, did a lot of the design for the sealing rooms, ordinance rooms and Celestial room – and it was beautiful! 

This was the first time I got to sit in the Celestial room with both of my girls (Chloe & Charlotte) next to me!  What a neat experience…

Here are a few pictures (taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4!)
