An addition to our family...

So, Buck and I refuse to rejoin Facebook, or MySpace- if boredom encourages me one day, I might blog about that! :) For compensation, here is the closest thing we will get to posting pictures and updates for the goings on of our life. 


Last week, after Ashton's graduation from business school, we ventured down to Arizona. There, we picked up our new baby, Sariah. She's an English Springer Spaniel, field bred. I'm sure I will post more pictures later, but this is about as still as we could get her to sit- preoccupied with a rawhide! 
She's adorable!! Definitely a 'mama's girl', and that's what I had hoped for. She is a cuddler, and growing more brave as the days go by. She's mastered the art of riding in cars, playing with Macie (Blake's dog), and swimming at our local lake. She's already learned to tell us when she needs to go out to do her business (ZERO accidents in the house!!), has learned 'come', 'sit', 'fetch' and the most used: 'No'.
   
Of course, we made the most out of our journey. We visited old friends, and made some new. Our favorite, by far, was venturing to Mesa and Snowflake to attend sessions in their temples. Both were absolutely beautiful and breathtaking.  Mesa, which wouldn't fit in the frame, is on the right; and Snowflake is on the left.


















Buck and I are Temple Junkies, if you could create a catch phrase for it. Our honeymoon was spent touring as many as we could find on our random driving adventure, and ever since then, any place we go- we have to visit the temples. :)

President Thomas S. Monson has counseled us, "To you who are able to attend the temple, I would counsel you to go often. Doing so will help to strengthen marriages and families.

Let us be kind to one another, be aware of each other’s needs, and try to help in that regard." 

There, in the temple, will we be able to grow closer together in our marriage - and to Christ.
