two more amazing places! lucky us!

seriously. disneyland, the temple, then the beach in two days! california is the best!! :)

anyway, This was a very special and overwhelming day. I went through the temple, with my family, fiancé, future in-laws, and a few close friends. It was an awesome experience and I felt so happy to have everyone that I love there with me. i can’t wait to visit so many more temples! especially being here in utah, i have no excuse not to go all the time!

After the temple, we had a big family barbecue on the beach! We didn’t take many pictures, but it was really such a great night. Riley and I had both of our family’s there, so we all met and had so much fun getting to know each other. I’m so happy that both of our family’s are awesome! I feel so blessed. We roasted hot dogs and burgers, watched the sunset, watched the stars over the ocean, and enjoyed good conversation. It was super casual and perfect. It was a nice break before the final preparations the next day.
