We went to the Phoenix Temple open house on Saturday. All these temples popping up in Arizona makes me so happy!
This one is pretty small, especially compared to the Gilbert Temple, and absolutely beautiful.
Eli sat on Dallin's shoulders during the tour. I know he won't remember it, but I loved watching him look all around and take everything in.
And even though it doesn't look like it in this picture, I think he had a pretty good time. :)
We also stopped by to see grandma Carmen, who is always so happy to see us, especially Eli.
I finally used this certificate I got for my birthday about... three, maybe four years ago. About time, right? I'm pretty sure butterscotch squares are what we will eat in heaven. SO GOOD.
Eli met his doppelgänger at IKEA. He had some pretty mixed feelings about the experience.
First, interest and curiosity.
Then exuberant displays of affection.
Things quickly turned south as deep feelings of jealousy began to develop, and the offending lookalike got a smack in the face...
...and an attempted arm amputation.
But then Eli realized this supposed "lookalike" was lacking his shiny bald head...
...so the jealousy dissolved, all was forgiven, and they parted as friends.
We finished off the day at Chick-fil-a where the cousins were finally able to hit each other in the face without doing harm. Possibly the best day of their short lives.
Becca and I pretty much finished up painted the bathroom we started a couple weeks ago, when this picture was taken. We are awful at taking duck-faced mirror pictures (that's probably good thing). Next step: staining the cabinets! Wish us luck! Man, it feels so good to see real progress being made on our house.
