Steven's Special Day

For those of you who are keeping your family group records up to date, you can add that Steven was endowed in the Orlando Temple on 28 July 2012.  There's no way to describe here what a special, spiritual, sacred experience it was, but it was the "happiest day of my life" as Steven put it later.  We know there will be other days with the "happiest day of my life" designation in his future, but we'll let this one claim top billing for a while.
Bright and early - which means the picture-taking lighting is terrible from this direction! 
I was there!
And so was Grandfather Beckstrand and Jeff.
Trying out a steak burrito at Chevy's afterwards - reminiscent of a fun tradition we haven't done in a while. 
We're so proud of you, Steven, and appreciate your strong testimony and stellar example of obedience.  We're honored to have you as part of our forever family!

What a wonderful experience for you all! It is a very special time to take a child to the temple and share those feelings. Good luck to you Steven! You will be a terrific missionary! And....you get to be in Angola! How awesome is that?! Enjoy the remaining family time with each other~
