Hi, I’m a Tennis Racquet!

hi-robyn

As soon as my brother Jake gets married, Lunch Bucket will have a new Aunt Robyn. She has really taken a liking to Robyn, and has decided to name one of our tennis racquets Robyn. She walks it around like a person, saying, “Hi, I’m Robyn.”

Don’t you just love the imagination of a child?

Making Moments: To the Park!

I love this time of year.  It’s getting lighter in the evenings, and the weather is significantly warmer.  Jenni and I took the kids to the park.  That was a lot of fun.  There were other kids on the playground, so I was a little shy to get up there with Lunch Bucket, but soon both found it fun to dig in the sand with me.
We built a couple of miniature castles with dragon caves and roads.  Very simple, but very fun.
Jenni had a great time with Tootles on the playground bridge.  He could hardly stand up unless he held the side bar, but he seemed to love it.

Why Mormons Build Temples

With the hype that the Church has gotten about temples lately, I would respond that the temple is a house of God, and I deeply love its ordinances.  They get me closer to my Savior Jesus Christ, and they help me become closer to my family.

I attended the temple this last weekend, and every time I go, I love the Lord more, I love my family more, and I want to try harder to be like my Savior.

Through the ordinances of the temple, I can have my family forever.

Here’s a video the Church put out about why we build temples.  I agree with it one hundred percent!

The Princess is Sleeping

You can probably imagine why these videos made me think of Toodles and Lunch Bucket. These guys know what play is really about. Play them full-screen if you want the full effect…
