pretty place with pretty girls...

This last weekend Travis had a training in Portland for work that he had to go to. So we all decided to pack up and go with him and spend the weekend there on a little mini vacation. So on Friday during Travis' training I took the girls to go see the temple. The prophet has said to take your children to the temple while they are young so that they grow to love it as they get older. He said to even have them touch it. And that's exactly what the girls did. It was fun to watch them and to see them touch the temple with a reverence that usually isn't there (in a two year old especially!). They loved how it sparkled. McKenna said, " I never knew how beautiful the temple was until now mom! I can't wait to grow up to go inside". That was pretty neat for me to hear.

Then we took advantage of the BEAUTIFUL grounds there at the Portland Temple to take some pictures. I still can't believe that I was blessed with such beautiful daughters. I look at them and am so grateful that Heavenly Father let me be their mom! Man I am LUCKY!!!

For the last 8 months since Megan was born, I have been trying to get a decent picture of all three of my girls together and every time it seems it is a DISASTER! Just take a look and see exactly what I mean. And these are just a few samples :)

These are the two best pictures of the three of them together and they still aren't my favorite but will have to do for now.

And I just love Madison's "I am so done smiling and taking pictures with you mom!" face. It makes me laugh really hard. Oh man does that girl have a personality and isn't afraid to show it. At least I got a few keepers out of her. Thanks for the temple adventure girls...it made a few great memories for your mom. Love you...

So adorable! That's so sweet what McKenna said... What priceless words. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the temple together, even if the pictures weren't perfect.

P.S. You mentioned you're selling your house. Where are you guys moving?
