This month has been filled with fun family activities. It has been a sweet month of loving and cherishing each family moment.
Next our son's family from Idaho came down for a 3 days; April 6th through 8th. We had a great with with them. They loved going to a fun center where they could ride and race go-carts, there were batting cages, games, miniature golf course, and a restaurant. It was a delightful day and everyone had a ton of fun.
On April 12th we drove up to Idaho for Austin, our grandson to be ordained a priest in the Aaronic Priesthood. We brought up with us Joseph who was ordained in February and Christian who was ordained in March. Austin's two cousins were able to stand in the circle for the ordination. There was a lot of priesthood power in that room. He received a lovely blessing from his Dad, Travis. It was one of those treasured spiritual moments.
In the lower left hand corner are these three boys when they were about 6-7 months old. In the lower right hand corner are the three of them at age 16. There is one more grandson to be ordained in August. We are hoping to take these three boys with us to the ordination. We love those sweet times for cousin bonding.
We had a delightful dinner after the ordination. Nothing like a family celebration. My daughter in law, Amanda is known for her yummy desserts and they were so good.
It's Soccer season for our Grandson's in Heber. We attended Jeffery's game on April 21st, Jonathan's game on April 27th.
Here is a picture of Joshua playing Soccer on April 27th. All three of these boys are very talented Soccer players. We always have fun attending their games.
We feel that families are forever and we enjoy having wonderful family moments together. "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints views the family as the most important organization in time and all eternity. The Church teaches that everything should center in and around the family. It stresses that the preservation of family life in time and eternity takes precedence above all other interests. It foundation is as ancient as the world. Its mission has been God-ordained." ( Teachings of President's of the church - Ezra Taft Benson).
