Our Family Temple Trip

On Saturday, October 18, 2008 our family went to the Redlands temple to finally do the work for our deceased brother David. I can't describe the feeling of being in the temple with most of my family and knowing that David was receiving his endowment. We also did other family names. I got to do the work for my great-great grandma Rachel Passmore. Jared did her husband, which was cool. I felt the spirit witness to me that our family members were pleased with the work we were doing for them. I have a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that our family is eternal. And we will be reunited after death. I finally feel like David is at peace and we have done all we can do for him. That is a huge relief for us. Those pictured above are from left to right: Misty, Jon, Me, Dad, Mom, Joe and Melanie. Not pictured were Jared, Paul (Jared's Dad), Roxanne McGowen, and Nancy Stubbs.

This is our sad attempt at a family picture. As you can see, one kid had no interest in being in the picture. Another refused to give eye contact. He said something about how a picture can capture your soul. I don't know, it went over my head. Ha Ha. Anyways, it was cold, windy, and the kids were done by this time. Next time, family picture first.

Megan was the most adorable thing ever. She tried to put every pumpkin she could carry in our wagon. She was having the time of her life. No wonder I spend all day kissing and hugging this baby. She is a doll.

Gavin had so much fun at the pumpkin patch. He went on all kinds of rides, not to mention he did pick out a pumpkin. He wasn't in the mood for posing with his orange buddy. Oh well.

Grandma Mountains took us all to the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago. This was just before we left. Aren't my girls so cute?
