A Break...

A LOT has been going on in the Alt family lately. Lots of changes and opportunities have come our way. Job changes and losses, learning to be new parents, and just coping with the every day bits of life. It can get overwhelming very quickly. When it got to be too much, (at the suggestion of a smart friend!) I said to Matt...

"We need to go to the Temple."

Although we're a few short weeks from actually going through the Temple and being sealed, I decided that we needed a getaway. We needed a few hours away from the world where we could go and think about our family, decisions, and the things coming our way.

So we packed up Bailey and hit the road on a Saturday morning. It was her first road trip, and she did pretty well!

Mommy where are we going? How far is it?

Over two hours?!?!

What will we do when we get there?
It was a beautiful day. Not too cold, but a little cloudy and breezy. We walked around the grounds, went to the visitors center and the bookstore.
It was the perfect escape. The message of the Cristus is so amazing, Matt calls it "the most powerful 90 seconds you'll ever experience." We took some time to get away from the world and just feel the Spirit. I am so grateful that we have a Temple close enough to go to, and that we get to go through this sacred building so very soon.

While there a passerby said to Matt, "Now there's a man who is proud to be a Daddy." It was so special to hear! :)

I am also pleased to announce that we are getting a new camera!! We turned in the one I got for Christmas and cashed in on the warrenty. It was ROUGH! So hopefully I can start taking some 'not blurry' pictures!


  1. I just got all teary-eyed reading that and seeing your beautiful pictures. I am so excited that you guys are going to be sealed soon. So awesome!!!

    Things will fall into place. You'll see. HUGS!!!

  2. i'm so glad that you got to go!! :)
