I seriously LOVE this family picture. Brooklyn is done and done. Colton is NOT going to open his eyes. Kaydon is doing a Kaydon look. Jackson is smiling because he wants to be able to play the xBox when we get home... you get the idea.

I am LOVING working a four-hour day each Friday. I get home by noon and I am a mom the rest of the weekend. This past Friday, we went to the Library. It was our first trip there. It is such a small, quaint little Library. You wouldn't even know it was there unless you knew it was there! Then we went to get snow cones. Oh, snow cones! They are my biggest weakness! Have you had ice cream in your snow cone yet? Oh.my.goodness. My new favorite thing is root beer snow cones with ice cream. Oh.my.goodness. After that, we went to the park and played. It is so fun to be able to be with my kiddos on these afternoons and just enjoy my time with them. I feel so blessed!

On Sunday, Colton asked if we could walk to church. It was a lovely enough day, so we walked. I was struck by the beauty of our walk. It was quiet and peaceful. It was so beautiful. Then, I looked around me and realized I was surrounded by warriors. They were in their white shirts and ties. They were stalwart and noble. They were healthy and strong. They were not being forced to go to church. They chose this for themselves. On this church day, they wanted to go. They were ready in plenty of time to allow us to walk the 15 minutes to the church. They surrounded me with their integrity. Oh, how I love church day!

Our wedding was perfection. Why? Because it was so simple. Right before the ceremony, I asked the Bishop if he could keep it to five minutes. He looked at me, winked, and said, "I'm pretty sure I can get it down to 3.5!!!" He is the best! We were there with our family and it was great!
