The Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple

Mount Timpanogos Temple _ Black and WhiteOf all the temples we have visited so far, this was my favorite visit. Why?

We drove out to Utah for his wedding. It was a super quick trip. We left in the early evening on Wednesday and got home on Sunday. So we really only had two full days in Utah- one of which was filled with wedding festivities, and the other a few temple visits, a baby blessing, and lots of family time. We packed a lot into those two days, and it was such a fulfilling little trip.Mount Timpanogos Temple _ Looking Up

So my brother Matt is 15 years younger than me. He is a genius with music (have you heard of RKDN? If not, you will.), and also apparently with picking an eternal partner. I absolutely adore his new bride!

On the day of his wedding, in late April, it started snowing! It was a cold, windy, snowy day. But oh, so beautiful.Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple 2

With the exception of myself, all of my parents’ children have been sealed in the Mount Timpanogos Temple (Carey and I were sealed in Orlando). It is a special place for my family. We have done lots of work there through the years, and I’m sure I will return there many more times.
