BYU 175th Opening Social

My wife and I serve in a BYU Stake, in particular the Provo YSA 12th stake, 175th ward. This past Friday (Sept 2nd) was our ward opening social. Opening socials are always fun because everyone is trying to get to know everyone else. The bishopric made hamburgers and a good time was had by all.  Follow this link to view the pictures.

Meet my family.

Perhaps we took family pictures before Ashley moved like a month ago. Family pictures are always a stressful event at my household. Picking the location and the outfits are usually the source of the stress. It doesn’t help when me and Ashley pretend to threaten to wear something that doesn’t follow the dress code. Note to self: don’t joke around with my mom when it comes to family pictures. I suppose it makes sense for it to be a big deal since we only get them once every two or so years.

Shelli and Kimball and Brody. P.S. taking pictures with the child gets slightly challenging, figuring sometimes he just doesn’t want to smile or be cooperative in any way…

Have I mentioned that I have the coolest siblings ever?

Once upon a time my dad said that I was too close to Ashley, so I made sure that I kept my distance.

Here we are trying to be artsy. Failed. Shelli can work it out. Matt looks a little lost. Ashley just looks angry. And me…no comment.


Okay, so the one posting these pictures, me, is not the one who actually takes them. I have been designated as the blogger of the photography. I hope you enjoy.
