When Kent's brother got married two weekends ago, Kent and all of his family were able to be inside the Temple all together. It was a very special, very sacred thing.
We are grateful to know that when a worthy couple is married by the Priesthood authority inside the Temple, their marriage and their family will last forever--eternally--far beyond "till death do we part." We know that life isn't over when we leave this mortal existence-and if we keep our covenants and follow God's commandments, we will be with our spouse and our children forever and ever. Temple marriage is a very sacred event for us, and we work very hard to be worthy of it and its blessings.
I would have been in there too, but my kids don't do well with being watched by people they don't know, and the ratio of littles to babysitters was already pretty high--so me and the kids and the cousins spent some time in the visitor's center and walking around the beautiful temple grounds.
We have got to work on this girl's "cheese" face.
(Thanks again, Shannon, for the picture!)
These stairs entertained Ellie for a good portion of the picture taking.
And I realized I didn't get a good picture of the bride and groom!
Here's Kent's mom's post about the wedding.
The whole day was beautiful and very very nice.
We would have loved to stay for the entire reception to see all the fun, but our kids were d.o.n.e. and we just couldn't last. It was great to be there, though-we're so very happy for Mason and Jessica!
