Happy Saint Valentines Day 2013!

Happy Saint Valentines Day! Feb 14 is the day St. Valentine was martyr. His heart is apparently somewhere in Dublin (meaning that he’s buried here). He was killed because he was performing marriage ceremonies for soldiers and young coupled even though marriage was not allowed at the time. What a great reason to have a … Continue reading Happy Saint Valentines Day 2013!

Taxi Ride and 35 Euros Pooer

We had an exciting adventure on Sunday. We woke up a little late. I was trying to get Micah ready for Church. Dallin was still sleeping at 10:00 am. Our train was going to leave at 10:25 am to get to 11:00 am church at the Bray Branch. We planned this perfectly to get to … Continue reading Taxi Ride and 35 Euros Pooer

Going to Church at the Bray Branch

I didn’t think we would end up in a branch. I thought I did my research before coming to Ireland that we would end up in a the Terenure ward. We couldn’t find an apartment until we got to Ireland. The apartment we found is in South Dublin. When I typed our new address into … Continue reading Going to Church at the Bray Branch

Full Time Student to Full Time Mom

I’m not going to lie. It was very strange to transition from a full-time student to a full-time mom.  Aside from also moving to a different country, it was just pure weird!  I don’t have homework, classes, teachers, or grades.  I didn’t know what to do with myself!  I felt like I was aimless and … Continue reading Full Time Student to Full Time Mom

Finglas Ward – First Week of Church in Ireland

Every time I’m traveling I get so excited to go to Church on Sunday. It’s always a hassle trying to figure out how to get to church in a new place but the minute I walk into sacrament meeting is like a breath of fresh air.  The Spirit of the Lord is always the same … Continue reading Finglas Ward – First Week of Church in Ireland

Our First Impression of Ireland

Dallin “I felt like we got on a plane and landed in Harry Potter world!” (I reminded Dallin that Harry Potter is probably more like England) “I feel like I’m on the mission again.” “I want to ride on the top floor of the double decker bus!” “I want to go watch the Hobbit” (There … Continue reading Our First Impression of Ireland

Nerdy Baby Costume

We dressed up Micah as a nerd this Halloween. He was so cute in his little suspenders and crayons in his pocket protector.      

Family Pictures: Big Cottonwood Canyon

My little brother, Aaron, took these pictures using a Canon 28 mm f/1.8 lens. This lens does a really good job with doing the fuzzy background but having the subjects be in focus. We went up to Big Cottonwood Canyon on a Sunday afternoon to catch the fall colors. Micah just turned 1 years old … Continue reading Family Pictures: Big Cottonwood Canyon

See Inside a Mormon Temple

We just recently went to Brigham City Temple Open House. It was absolutely wonderful and beautiful! My baby, Micah, was so interested and intrigued by being inside a temple for the first time. Usually you have to be 12 years old, a baptize member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and receive a temple recommend by your church leaders to … Continue reading See Inside a Mormon Temple
