We Love To See The Temple

Every once in a while we like to take the kids down to Salt Lake City to visit temple square.  It is always fun to see the temple.  Our kids get excited to see it and can't wait for the day that they can go inside.  We took this beautiful picture on one of our visits a couple of years ago.  I wanted to share it with you.  

“I think there is no place in the world where I feel closer to the Lord than in one of His holy temples.”

Skylanders Portal Of Power Cake

We Made A Skylanders Portal Of Power Cake!  Isn't It Cool?

My son, Ryan, turned 11 years old today.  One of his favorite things to do lately is play Skylanders on the Wii.  The real genius of the Skylanders games is how it blends the fun of toys and video games into one experience.  Ryan can collect the Skylander figures, put them on his portal of power, and then that character is introduced into the game on the TV.  This provides hours of entertainment for my boys.  The biggest bonus for me is that I can get my boys to do anything (Hey Ryan, if you do 10 loads of laundry I will buy you a Skylander)!  If you are interested in Skylanders for your kids, you can purchase the game Here...

We decided to surprise Ryan with a portal of power cake.  He was super excited, and couldn't believe how closely the cake resembled the REAL portal of power.  Below is a picture of the REAL portal.

Ryan loved his cake, and couldn't be happier.  

He got his slice, and now he is off playing "Crusher" on the Wii.

Happy Birthday Buddy!
