I always said I would never

let my temple recommend expire.

Well, it expired. And guess when I found out? At the temple last night. Oops. :)

A couple months ago I remember thinking wow, we're coming up on our 4 year anniversary. That means we're going to have to renew our temple recommends again.

Then I had a baby. And completely forgot about renewing my recommend. Luckily Brandon is much smarter than I am, and he remembered. When we got home from Church on Sunday he told me he had talked to a guy in the stake presidency to find out when we could do our stake interviews. I was like oh yeah, I forgot we need to renew our recommends. So Brandon said we couldn't do it next Sunday because it's Father's Day, so we would do it the next week. I asked Brandon if our recommends expired in May and he said no, they expire in June.

So this week we had been planning on going to the temple. Last night when he got home from work we decided that I would just go on my own. So I got all dressed, got in the car and drove to the temple. As I was walking in, I thought I better look at my recommend and see when it expires. Well, I saw that it expired in May. But I was already there, so I thought, what can it hurt, I'll play dumb and see if they let me in. Well, they didn't let me in. So I left and drove back home. I thought it was pretty funny.

I got home and Brandon pulled out his recommend and saw that his expires in June. I don't know how we got off, maybe our interviews with the Bishop were separate last time, because I know we went to the stake together. Anyway, long story short, I have to wait a few more weeks to get back to the temple. :(

My friend Libby came by today to hang out with me and our girls had a blast hanging out toether. Crazy that at 6 weeks and 6 months old, they recognize each other and just love each other. It was so cute.
Mckinley was smiling like crazy at Kenzey. Of course I didn't catch a full smile. One day I will.
