I love the gospel so much! I am so grateful to be able to serve the Lord with this spiritual gift He has given me of photography. He has truly magnified my talents as I have been willing to serve Him and I am truly humbled and grateful for this experience!
Hey! It’s taken me 2.5 months to post Quentin’s 2 year old pictures. I’ve been super busy with my kids, studying photography and keeping my apartment clean!!! That’s why I haven’t had time to post anything!
I dressed him up as Hiro from Big Hero 6. Why? Because his hair was super long and my husband really wanted me to cut it. So I had to dress him up like Hiro before I cut off his awesome hair.
This can be a super easy Halloween Costume for any little boy who has long shaggy hair! It could help if you were Asian or half Asian but either way… it’s super easy to dress up like Hiro.
I love the movie Big Hero 6 because of Baymax… I think I need a Baymax to take care of me!
Holy cow you guys! I fell off the face of the planet. Sorry about that. It’s been really busy traveling, taking lots of pictures for my calling and helping my husband edit his dissertations. I’m just trying to keep up with my kids, cleaning and laundry. There really is a time and a season for everything.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven… Ecclesiates 3:1
I wish I have more time to post on here but it’s just not my first priority. I’ll do the best I can because I have a lot of pictures to share with you all.
I recently participated in the a photography competition in Utah. We had to take pictures of 10 different categories and submit our best 30 pictures within 48 hours. It really pushed me to my limits and helped me advance my skills in photography.
One of my most proud category came from “Architecture.” We traveled to Park City to take picture of this historic barn.
This blog just celebrated our 5th anniversary because we started this blog right after we got married and we just celebrated our 5th anniversary! Over the last 5 years, we’ve posted almost 200 times. It has never been super consistent but I blog in the seasons of life when I can. Thanks for sticking by!
Back this March we went to visit Grandma in Illinois. We flew into St. Louis. This was the second time we visited Grandma. The last time was back in 2010 (see post here).
Here is a picture of the famous arch. When we were driving around the arch I received the idea to create the WordPress Ward which is finally a reality. The WordPress Ward recently was awarded Honorable mention at the 2014 LDS Tech Conference! This motivated me to find my St. Louis pictures because I remember distinctly that right next to the Gateway arch is where I received the inspiration from the Holy Ghost to create the WordPress Ward.
The arch is a monument to Thomas Jefferson and the pioneers who went west during the Westward Expansion between 1830 and 1870.
The Mormon Pioneers were among the first people to trek across the terrain to find a place to safely practice religion because of persecution.
In 1847, Brigham Young lead the first group of pioneers to Utah where President Young declared that, “This is the right place”. Salt Lake City is now where the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The church membership is now 15 million and there are currently 141 operating temples.
This time when we were at the St. Louis Temple it was closed for cleaning but I decided to take pictures anyways! 🙂
I’m so grateful for the pioneers who suffered much to get to Salt Lake City! Their example and sacrifice is a blessing to us all. The church has been blessed because of the great faith of the Mormon Pioneers.
