Today we ate bacon. Yeah I know that sounds lame but for the last few months we have only been eating turkey bacon. Heck it has been for at least 6 months since I last bought real bacon. When Rick first bit into it he said, "Whoa, that's good." I took my first bite and thought...mmmm That is SO good. I think I even let a little "mmm" slip out. It reminded me of this great clip.

mmmm, Bacon!

Baby Katie Turns 1

We were able to celebrate baby Katie's first birthday last week. Not only was all of her dad's family there, (Katie is our niece on Michele's side of the family) all of her mom's family was there too. We always have so much fun with them. We love having such a good relationship with so many wonderful people who truly are family. We had fun eating our bbq food on the picnic blanket, it sure is getting used now, while watching the older girls entertain us. All the while hoping that it wouldn't start raining on us.
The highlight of the night was watching Katie eat her cake. She was a bit apprehensive at first but she did eventually get the hang of it and boy did she have a good time!

Oquirrh Mountain Temple

As all in the Salt Lake Valley know, we have been extremely blessed this year to have not only one new Temple but TWO! Talk about an unheard of event. Rick and I were able to visit the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House on Saturday June 6th. It was a wonderful experience.
It is so much like other Temples, in being so incredibly beautiful and yet so different as it has been individualized to reflect the area. I look forward to experiencing the blessing of the Temple there.
