From blog to book

I was reading my Creating Keepsakes magazine on the plane and came across a great idea that I thought I'd share (or know where to find again). You can turn your blog into a bound book at http://www.blurb.com/. Here are some blog template sites they suggested as well: http://www.bloggerboutique.com/; http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/; and http://www.simplyfabulousbloggertemplates.com/.

Orlando, Florida Temple

On Sunday, October 12, we headed on out to church for 1 PM Sacrament Meeting. I had printed up the address at home and a map with directions. It wasn't very far away, however, when we tried to find the address all we found was a shopping center. Looking more closely at my printout I realized that this address was for a YA ward! But, also was listed another ward further down the road (miles). So hurrying down the road not to be late, we looked up to see the white temple looming ahead! We were surprised. We had forgotten there was a temple in Orlando. The church was across the street so afterwards we went over to enjoy the Orlando temple grounds. It was a very warm, humid day and hundreds of little lizards were scurrying all around. I should have taken a video of Brent trying to quietly sneak up on one and catch it - they were way too fast. I have never seen so many lizards! The temple grounds are beautiful and peaceful.

I took dozens of pictures. Wish I could format them better on this blog. And fortunately, I won't put all the pictures here! It makes me want to start a new family temple book - remember the one we made when Tamara and Jocelyn were little? We kept adding pictures of our family at temples we visited. Unfortunately it was in a magnetic album, so it is time to start over!
