One Year!

Ben and I celebrated our one year anniversary on June 19, 2010. Here's a glimpse of what we did to celebrate.

We got all ready to go to Salt Lake for our anniversary date.


First, we exchanged gifts. Ben got me some new scriptures which I desperately needed. They are beautiful!

I made Ben a collage of our first year, frame coming soon.
We went and did a session at the Salt Lake Temple. Salt Lake is a beautiful temple. I love admiring the craftsmanship of the pioneers. Elder Oaks and his wife were in our session!

Next, we went to the visitor's center to check out the new 3D model of the temple. Cool.
Then we went for dinner at The Roof Restaurant. We were stuffed!

Lastly, we went to visit the temple where we got married and reminisce about that day one year ago. Then we talked about what fun things we had done that year and what we wanted to do better next year. It was a perfect end to a perfect day.

Illinois and Iowa

Last week we went to Illinois to visit Ben's family, and Iowa to visit my sister Heather. It's a good thing we are going back to Illinois next year because I didn't take enough pictures. I promise next time I will show you pictures of Ben's family!


Ben worked on building a swing set while we were in IL. This is what he looked like 80% of the time. Here he is the garage getting ready to drill some holes.

Here we are in Iowa. Uncle Ben is helping Luke with t-ball.

We went out to a pond near Heather's house. Look at this cute duck and little ducklings!

Proof that Ben actually IS a farm boy at heart.


Until next time!
