{Pine Valley 2012 - Part 3}

 We drive into St. George every year, multiple times...usually to hit Cafe Rio.  But we finally made it the two blocks over to see the St. George temple.  My parents and grandparents were married here and it is magnificent!  It's so white it is almost blinding in the direct sunlight. 

We toured the visitor's center on the temple grounds.  Miles couldn't stop pointing at Jesus.  'Jesus' is one of his 10 words and it just melts your heart. They had some awesome displays and presentations for kids. 
 And then we took some pictures outside the temple. 
 Love this lil' dude in his shades.
We also spent two afternoons at the Veyo pool.  A tradition since I was a kid.  It never disappoints.  The kids played in the water for hours. 

And we had a shady spot and the pack n' play for this little guy to snooze. 
Claire and Camille soaking up the rays. 
And on our first visit, my SIL and her 2 kids came up from Hurricane to meet us.  We don't see these guys that often, so it was so fun to splash around and play for a day with cousins, Evee and Owen.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
