This is the girls everytime we get in the car, they can't resist the car. It takes over and they pass out everytime, within minutes..... so cute!
So we have really been enjoying our time here in Michigan. I really need to take picts over at our pool but I thought I would post some picts of the girls here in Michigan having some fun. As you can see Ze found out she could crawl in the dryer which is so fun for her since we didn't have a dryer in our last place, and we found a carousel that they loved going on at the mall. We also, did a service project in Detroit and got to eat at Mexico town afterwards, which I must say was a delight, since Chris and I are half Mexican! We love our new ward and have been having a great summer. I am now training to run a half marathon and it has been tough getting back into after taking a month off, but it is beautiful running around here. Michigan is a beautiful state with fresh water lakes and green everywhere. I sure hope I will be saying that after the winter comes. Well I just thought it was time to post! We miss our old friends and hope everyone is having a great summer!
We went to Orlando Temple!
Chris and I were sealed to eachother and then to Missoni in the Orlando Temple. I have no words to describe the wonders of the temple and how we felt on this day. They brought Missoni in to the sealing room in her white dress and the entire room burst into tears. Even people who had come into view the sealing that didn't know us were crying. It was amazing. My mom and dad were there, Chris' bro, Les and his wife Kim, and Tiff and Brock. It was a very special day. I love my family so much and so grateful for the great sealing power of the temple.
Boy meets girl in South Florida!
This is the Thompson Family love story. We should have started our blog a long time ago. So to make up for it, I am going to start back to the time I met Chris and move forward to now! Enjoy reading about our love story and how we are now doing as we make the LONG journey through Law School in Syracuse, New York! We now have a wonderful, beautiful busy 18 month old. We love her and she is the light of our lives!
We had a wonderful time down in South Florida......
We loved living in Ft. Lauderdale. Chris and I had nothing but a shabby studio apartment when we got married, but we loved it. It was so nice to see Chris ever day, while I finished up my degree at the Art Institute. He was working for Franklin Templeton and I was so busy with my thesis but we still found time to get away to the Botanical Gardens in the Gables, and Naples on the west coast. We had so much fun together our first year of marriage. Maybe too much fun, thats when I found out I was pregnant about 3 months after being married, with the biggest blessing in our life, Missoni, our gorgeous, lovely baby girl.
