Provo City Center Temple Open House

 The last weekend in February we had the chance to take a whirlwind trip to Provo to attend the Provo City Center Temple open house.  It was so nice to get away for the weekend and spend time with family.  We got there late Friday night and filled our cravings for Cubby's and played with the face swap filter on Snapchat. 

Our boys are early risers and we took advantage of that and went downtown Provo to try Kolaches, I would definetly eat those again. 

 Then we walked down the street to try cornets, something else I would also probably eat again.  Our boys had already eaten breakfast earlier and so they enjoyed ice cream at 9 AM.

We went to the park and played, the best part was Luke and Chet on the teeter-totter without a kid near them.  Erika got a good shot of that.

At around 1 pm we headed to the temple. It was a Saturday and SUPER busy, we had tickets and still had to wait in line for about an hour.  Luke held Tracen sleeping in his arms the entire time, which worked out great because Tracen woke up for the tour and was in a good mood and enjoyed it.  The temple was SO beautiful inside.  The last time I was in there was for a Stake Conference when I was attending BYU, it was fun to reminisce and see Tracen get excited about what he saw.  
Poor Rai is crying for some reason.

We ate delicious BAMBAMS BBQ for a late lunch and then Luke and Chet headed to a basketball game and we stayed behind and Jamie, Erika and I watched Fuller House.  

After church on Sunday we finally got to see the Radfords again for not long enough!  Stori and Tracen picked up right where they left off, except they are a lot better at communicating nowadays.  Long gone are the days when these two were our little babies turned toddlers. 

 Not easy to get all these kids to look at the camera at the same time, and obviously even harder to get a smile.  We can't wait for the next time we get to hang out with them.

Chet made us lunch and then Luke and him had a bit of a nap while Rai did and the girls and I took Tracen to the park.  Then it was a long drive home.  

It was such a quick weekend, but worth all the driving and I think we will need to find a reason to do it again soon.
