40 years

Last week, we celebrated Mom & Dad's 40th wedding anniversary!!! Can you believe that? Spending 40 years w/the same person!?!? Since one year of marriage seems like an impossibility to me, 40 is definitely out of this world!
We returned to the scene of the crime--the Salt Lake temple--and had a really lovely experience there. It's truly such an amazing building, inside and out!!! Then we went to dinner at the Garden restaurant--which is at the top of the Joseph Smith Building. It was super delish and we had an awesome time....as you can see.

Me & Hill....
Mom & Jeff....
Ally & Kyle....
Pop & Steve....
Obviously they waited a reeeeeaally long time to have kids b/c we are not even close to 40 years old! :) The original 7....
My parents are one of the greatest blessings I have in this life. I love that they love each other and that they have dedicated their lives to making each other and their children and grandchildren happy. We are really lucky!!
