I've been meaning to do a photo of our family at the Temple for a while. We tried a month or so ago but it wasn't up to my standard so it never saw the light of day.
Des and I have been going to the Temple every month for the past 7 months and we thought we'd bring the kids with us this time. It was the Saturday before Des' birthday and we did the trip as a way to celebrate the occasion. I brought my lights and we got the kids all cleaned up. Whlie we were there the girls got to see a bride come out of the Temple and they were just starstruck and all they could talk about was how much they wanted to be married in the Temple (as long as we can keep them focused on that one goal I will be happy). Even Ben was saying that he was looking forward to being able to go in one day.
I decided to do our photos on the opposite side of the temple where everyone else does their photos. i have admired this side for a while because of the mature trees and how they frame the Temple rather then the temple just standing out there like it does directly opposite from were we were.
I have to say that the past 7 months have gone a lot better then I would have imagined. After loosing my job I never would have thought we would being doing as well as we have been. I know it is, in part, a result of our regular Temple attendance.

With all the nice weather we thought we'd go out last night and do a family photo again. What we hadn't planned for was the swarm of aphids that awaited us at the location. It was bad. In the photo below you can see them reflecting the sun in the right hand side of the image. First it was mosquitoes earlier in the year now it is aphids, great. Oh well what can you do? At least it's not snowing yet right?

I promised my self (and Des) before we left, that I would take more pictures of the two of us and not just the things we saw. About the third day into our trip I started to really appreciate the time I was getting to spend with Des away from the pressures back home. I found my self looking at her with new eyes (actually the old eyes I saw her with when we first met) and I fell in love with her again. It was so nice to be able reconnect. We still argued a few times and had a huge blow up in London over something small but I came back from our trip with more then just some nice pictures; I came back with a more consummate love for my wife.
After our walk with David we went on a few more walks with Alison to Wollaton Hall and Nottingham Castle while David went to work.
