For Time and ALL Eternity!

The reason all of my family came to Utah this past July was because my older brother, Dale, and his family got sealed in the Salt Lake Temple.  It was a beautiful day, but that's not to say that Satan didn't try really, really hard to ruin it for people.  These are the things that happened that day.
1.  The night before the sealing Dennis and Tanner both got 'throw-up' sick.  Poor Dennis had to miss everything!
2. Both Dennis and Leah's cars got broken into.  Whoever did it, bless his hateful little heart, broke out both of their passenger side windows.
3.  Me, Ioane and Leah were running late to the temple and then I took a wrong turn.  Then when we finally got to the parking garage, there we NO parking places.  After we finally found one, we had to run from the parking garage to the temple.  Um....have you seen me and Leah?  Running is not an easy task and we were both in church shoes.  Not flat ones either!  So anyways........on with the story.  We made it to the front desk with like 5 minutes to spare.  I was almost hyperventalating because I couldn't breath from running and I was crying, thinking I was going to miss their session.  We went in and, of course, had to rent clothing....UGGGG!!!  We got to the dressing room with like two minutes to spare and just barely made the session with me still bawling!!  I think every thing after that for that day was pretty smooth sailing.
We did have many family members get sick this trip.  Thank goodness, somehow, my family avoided it!

I can't believe all that happened! And I can sympathize with the running! Poor Dennis. I'm glad everything turned out all right though. Congratulations Dale!
Oh! and I'll see you in 2 weeks!!!!!

Well its about time you blogged about something! Just kidding :) That was a really special day, even though Satan tried to ruin it. I'm glad that I was able to be a part of it!

Satan tried to stop us also. We broke down on the way and ended up getting to the Motel at 4:30 am and had to be at the Temple at 7:00 but we made it and like you said everything after that was smooth sailing. What a wonderful opportunity for your family to all be together again and in the most wonderful place on earth.

My brother was supposed to pick up my mom in West Jordan, on his way from Provo to the SL temple. There was the first blizzard of the year the night before and Jon TOTALLY FORGOT my mom! So, my grandma was in my dressing room with me and then Larry and I stood outside in the hall with the sealer while they said, "You have to get married now, we are on a timetable here." over and over. I kept thinking, "I can't believe my mom is going to miss my wedding!" Just as they gave us the final ultimatum, the elevator doors opened and my mom jumped out, gasping and red-faced.

My brother is such a dork.

But I LOVE weddings and sealings!
