Temple trip

Chad's still young men's president...at least for a few more weeks (he was called last week as the 1st counselor in the Elder's quorum presidency), so we got to go up to St. Louis for the youth temple trip.

Liam & me waited outside.

It was hot and the shade was minimal, but I was excited to try out a new lens I'd just gotten- the 85 mm 1.4.  I love it!  I think it's my new favorite!

And then, as I was taking pictures something caught Liam's eye.  His curiosity was fun to photograph, until I realized that he was chewing  on whatever it was he found...

Liam always finds trouble when I'm taking pictures of him (note the previous entry with pictures of him beginning to drown).

On a happier, less disgusting note, everyone really enjoyed the temple.

And, another happy note- Liam went into nursery for the first time yesterday. He LOVES it!!!  Not a tear shed.  I can't wait til he has a little brother or sister because he loves other little kids! (below is his first nursery art work...definitely a very talented use of an orange crayon).

  4. cute family, your pictures of the temple are beautiful. and in your previous post the one of his toes is precious. I think all little baby toe nails look like that. But I would never think to take a picture of it to remember it. Love you work :)

  5. I remember taking temple trips as a youth! They were always a lot of fun...long...but fun. I love the image of your son looking up; his eyes are striking.

    The poop. Gross. But hilarious, too.

  6. So I was wondering if you'd be willing to let me use that photo of the temple in this post? I'll buy it from you. I want it for my living room wall. I just stare at whenever I come to your blog and I decided it is the prettiest shot and I NEED it in my home.
