Much needed night out

Somehow I need to get back in the habit of taking pictures so I won't have an excuse not to blog about the Smith happenings.

Pictures or none, just wanted to post about our family night out. I can't even remember that last time we took the kids out to dinner. We keep thinking we need to do it and tonight we put everything on the back burner and went. I wasn't sure if we were going to have Jordan with us as it WAS the last wrestling match and she really wanted to go. To our great delight, she chose to come with us. We took them out for Chinese and had a wonderful time laughing and joking around. It just felt good.

After that, we drove them past the site for the new Payson temple. Even though the temple was not even there, we felt like we were already on holy ground. We each pictured that bright beautiful building standing against the dark sky and we smiled. We drove slowly away and could not take our eyes off the site.

Next, we stopped at Maverik and got a frozen yogurt and drove around our old neighborhood in Santaquin. We miss our neighbors there so much.

What a great night!

You mean you drove right by my house . . .
Isn't it awesome - the temple site. I cry when I drive down by it.
Family time like that is important. The backburner can be a good thing sometimes.

I love going out as a family. On our way home, I always have a satified smile on my face, its the best way to spend your time. I too am excited for the temple. I can't believe it is going to take four years though. Oh well, I'm sure the time will go by fast.
