The Ward family FHE

Last Monday, I went downtown to see the new Joseph Smith movie, go to the new "I am a Child of God" section of the church history museum thinger, and have lunch with my family. I'm so friggin' lucky that my family gets along as well as we do. it could be a whole lot worse, and I'm so glad I've got what I've got. My family is rad.

The kiddies outside the movie theater.

Nana and the grandkids waiting for the movie.

So me, two sisters, a brother, a brother-in-law, my mom, two nieces, and one nephew hung out for a few hours. I think it was pretty impressive that we even made it, seeing as it snowed like crazy Monday. My sister took the drive with her family from Eagle Mountain, but I went to get my mom in West Jordan and we took trax. And I took a bunch of pictures. Hope you enjoy them! I'm really starting t accept that I'm a horrible picture taker.

Shelby and Sarah making temples at the new I am a Child of God area.

Carter drawing at one of the stations. If you click on the picture for the lager view, you can actually see the red on his paper.

Carter again. Behind each of these wooden windows is a picture of a story from the Book of Mormon, Bible, Pearl of Great Price, and Doctrine & Covenants.

Most of the adults.

Carter making a stained glass window.

Shelby posing with the Rod of Iron and the Great and Spacious Building. They had this whole wall of Lehi's dream, it was pretty cool. I told Shelby to pose for me and this is what she did. My nieces rock.

Sarah with her baby at the Nativity scene. She has her baby from the nursery with her. She took that baby everywhere! There were dress-up clothes for the nativity. From one of the earlier pictures, you can see that carter is wearing a shepherd's robe.

The kids playing church at the pulpit. I found out that Emity's kids LOVE playing church and giving talks. At the museum, Shelby even asked for a sustaining vote at one point.

Shelby reading bible stories on this giant scroll.

Isn't my family great? It was fun to go to these church related places with the fam. We have our monthly FHE, but the lesson is usually pretty basic, since we have to accommodate children from 6 months old to 10 years old. It also gave me new resolve to quit the cussing habit. I almost said a swear after dropping my camera in the church museum. Talk about awkward. Let's just say hooray for my favorite pseudo swear word, "DAMage!"

I like some of those pictures, actually - I think you got some good shots in there. But then again, I'm no photographer either.
