Last Sunday my facebook feed was filled with pictures of cute families at the Oakland Temple that my friends had posted. We had had a special stake conference with Elder Cook, and the meeting was held at the Interstake Center next to the temple. Afterward we walked on the grounds. There were DSLR cameras galore, snapping pictures of darling children doing darling things in a beautiful setting.
I do not have a good camera, but a friend offered to snap a couple of our "cute family." Let me narrate the experience for you.
Okay, everyone. Look at the camera so we can take a quick picture!
Fine. I give up. Let's see if we can do better in front of the temple itself.
(We had a similar experience with Addie during our family pictures this summer. When she looked at the images later she asked, "Why does my face look like that?" I don't know, Addie. I just don't know."
