And then another. And another.
And tears came to my eyes.
The picture was all three of my boys dressed in white, sitting next to their dad and their cute cousin in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple baptistry. I sat across from them and had move seats to duck my head to get a good look. I couldn't stop smiling. My heart overflowed with love and pure joy in that sweet and sacred moment.
|Two happy twins and one happy cousin. We love this guy. He gave the twins cool designs of duct tape. A cool gift.|
|I got honked at while taking pictures by the curb. I got a bit too far into the road. The man standing behind our family said, "A mother's love. She would go into a busy street to take pictures of her sons."|
My twins had been debating for months about which temple to visit on their twelfth birthday. They were full of questions for weeks. Like little kids at Christmas. It was just as wonderful as I hoped.
Then we headed to Chuck A Rama for dinner. Icing on the cake.
Actually a little too much cake.

What more could a boy want?
I pointed out this was a definite perk of having a dad be a bishop. First thing in the morning they put on church clothes and received the Aaronic priesthood.
Then Dad came home from work early to give them temple recommend interviews. They didn't want to wait until next week. They wanted their first temple visit to be on the very day.
They're hooked. I'm thrilled.
|This time the other twin did research and brought ancestor names to share with his siblings.|
We are excited to meet (or reacquaint ourselves) with those ancestors.
|On the drive home as we discussed the peace and calm we feel in the temple, the twin on the far right exclaimed, "The temple is like candy for your spirit!"|
And we enjoyed some yum afterward at Roxberry.
Here are some yummy moments helping my twinners finish up their Faith in God award on Sunday afternoons.
