Well Robert and I went up to DC to go to the temple. We live about 31/2 hours away from the temple, and weren't able to find someone here to watch the boys. So we decided to make it a little overnight trip. We stayed with my friends parents' best friends. They agreed to let us stay and they would watch the boys while we went. Only, when we got to the temple we realized our recommends had expired! So embarassing!!! Our hosts/babysitters were very gracious, but I still felt so bad. Anyway, we made the most of it, and finally did some sightseeing. We only walked around a few hours, so we will be going back soon to see some more!

Oh no!! That stinks! I forgot my recommend once when we went to the Portland temple (didn't realize they could just call my bishop) so we sat in traffic for a few hours instead. Good luck next time! P.S. Your family is so beautiful!

Yeah that you got to make the most of that situation! Let us know how you like your new camera when you get to try it. I'm so wanting a new one!

Ugh I miss those boys soooo much!!! They are too cute rolling down that hill. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun and Jess you are glowing in your pics

What a drag about the temple recommends, but I'm glad you had a fun trip anyway. Your boys look so big!

Jeannie said...

Yay! Thanks for the Christmas card and update. I didn't even know you guys left the NW!

Glad to see all is well. Congrats on the upcoming addition to your fun family!

Bummer about your recommends! One of my biggest fears now that we live so far away, too!
