While we were driving, we listened to Conference. It was nice to hear again! Well, at least the parts of it that I was awake for. I don't know what the deal is but put me in a car for long periods of time and I fall asleep. It is really odd because I have a very difficult time taking naps but in the car... I'm out! Casey and I would trade off driving. But he ended up driving more because I would get so tired. I'm really grateful that he doesn't have the same driving sleepiness thing that I do! :)
As we were driving up, we stopped in Twin Falls to see the temple. It was very pretty--all temples are! It reminded me of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple in Salt Lake. We wanted to go in the temple but the hours were not convenient. It is a small temple and you have to plan your schedule to fit when the temple is open. It was at least nice to drive past though and take pictures! :D

|Temples = Love Eternal!|
We went to the temple in Boise. I love how the church is true no matter where you are! This temple is very small (maybe I am just used to a huge one) but everything was still the same. I love serving inside the temple! There is such a wonderful feeling and peace that come. I am also always filled with an eternal love! Additionally, prayers are answered! :) After the temple, we found a locally owned "mom & pop" restaurant. It was delicious!!!! So good in fact, that we insisted on going back to it again with my whole family!
|I love temples!|

(the restaurant had this sweet painting on one wall)
|I just thought this was cool. It is a chandelier that obviously is shaped like a ship.|
The next day, I went shopping with my mom and my sister in the morning. It was fun wandering around trying to find last minute forgotten items for the reception later that night. I miss hanging out with my mom and sister so this was a nice "girl" retreat!
|It was very fancy! The colors were blue and purple.|
(I loved watching the lady decorate and arrange the flowers!)
|Bride & Groom|
|We all had to wear blue. (Her family was purple.)|
|awh!!! I LOVE this picture!!|
|I'm an equal "arch" kisser... LoL!|
BTW: I made the scarf I'm wearing... my sister has a matching one
(but we don't have a picture of us together...)

The water was really green!
