Kiosk Preview

Kiosk Preview

We had a kiosk preview today.  They are currently remodeling the Church History Museum.  One of the features will be an interactive kiosk featuring my photos.  Once open, you’ll have to visit Salt Lake City and tour the museum.  (The museum is located across the street from Temple Square next to the Family History Center.)

Nathaniel at Temple Square

We arrived a little early and met Sariah and Nathaniel at temple Square.  I gave each of the kids a db walton shirt.  Nathaniel’s was about the only one that fit well, the others were a little big on the girls.

Grandkids at the North Visitor’s Center

They went up to the Christus Room and trying to get a picture of the three of them was like herding cats.  If one was looking, another was sporting an attitude.  So, the above is the best of all of them.

Me, Elizabethe and Some of Our Grandkids in Front of Demo Screen

I met with the CSM Missionary folks, in person, for our weekly phone call.  After that, I met one of the guys from the History Library who gave us a demo of the kiosk.  (In the picture above you can see a picture of Hill Cumorah I shot and what will become the kiosk screen.)

Grandkids Playing with Tablet

From there it was off to the Joseph Smith Memorial building were we had lunch.

Sariah, Rebecca and Amber

After lunch, I took a couple parting shots of the grandchildren.  They wanted to do a “funny” picture, so I asked them to show me some attitude.  They did that very well.

Grandkids showing off

Finally, I asked them to give Nathaniel a hug and face the camera.  I love the results.  I already miss them.

A trip to Salt Lake City is not complete without a picture of the temple.

Salt Lake Temple

On the way to the airport, we stopped at See’s Candy so I could pickup a year’s supply of Bordeaux chocolates.  Okay, it probably won’t last a year, but I have vowed to only eat one a day.

More Small World Stuff

I get a message from a friend who was visiting Temple Square in Salt Lake City. He was talking to some people from Salt Lake who said they were going to Palmyra this summer. One of the couples mentioned they have a daughter serving in Palmyra. It turns out, their daughter is serving in our ward.

Again… it’s a small world.

I taught priesthood meeting today. Because it was the Sunday for the group leadership to choose the lesson, I chose to teach it about the atonement. I felt it went well, and I personally learned a lot. In fact, the reason I chose the topic was to learn more about the atonement. We often hear about it being the aspect of the gospel where mercy and justice can both be satisfied, however, we don’t often hear about how it can resolve sickness and other types of suffering.

Elizabethe is still under the weather, so dinner consisted of me and the elders. I fixed tacos and the three of us ate tacos and had ice cream for dessert.

Elizabethe’s uncle and her cousins arrived, but I was so beat it was all I could do to say, “Hi”. They are taking off tomorrow, so I don’t know how much I will see of them since I have a busy day scheduled.

By the way, if you’re planning to visit Palmyra, make sure you check us out at www.beckwithmansion.com .
