"Marriage partners who come to the house of the Lord and partake of its blessings are joined not only for the period of their mortal lives but for all eternity. They are bound together under authority not only of the law of the land that joins them until death but also through the eternal priesthood of God, which binds in heaven that which is bound on earth. The couple so married has the assurance of divine revelation that their relationship and that of their children will not end with death but will continue in eternity, provided they live worthy of that blessing."
President Gordon B. Hinckley
This summer my son-in-law's brother, Glen was sealed in the Sacramento Temple. Glen married a beautiful young woman from our home ward, Kelsey Strazzo.
I just wanted to share a few of these special pictures from that day. You can tell by the children's faces that they adore Glen and Kelsey. The children could hardly wait for them to exit the building. Kelsey said she was surrounded by little people all day. Brad has 3 brothers and one sister. So Wyatt, Monroe, Maverick, and Cash have lots of cousins who all live in the Sacramento area. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful extended family.

One of our friends recently mentioned she hasn't seen pictures of our latest grandson Cash and asked if he is alright. So I thought I better give you an update on the Bailey family. Cash is doing great. He is absolutely adorable. Karrissa says he is such a mellow baby. She says he is a lot like Wyatt was. Maverick is a busy little guy. I have heard he gives lots of loves. Monroe and Wyatt both started preschool this year and love it. Karrissa and Brad say it has taken some time to adjust to having four children under 4 but they do manage to take some fun trips with the family. They have good friends from Reno who have children and they have done several day trips with them. Monroe says when I get home from my mission I am going to say, "Monroe how did you get so big?" We are looking forward to our annual trip to Santa Cruz with the Bailey's and our son Nathan the end of May. We will be joining many of our old friends at New Brighten Beach for a week long vacation in the sun.
