Body Worlds

On Thursday, my Mom, my sister Melissa, and my nephew Connor and I went to Body Worlds in SLC at The Leonardo. I have mixed feelings about it. I was expecting great and for me it was "good" I have the feeling of "did that don't need to do it again."

We were in a bit of a rush the entire day. My sister Carrie stayed in Heber to tend my kids, so after the museum we left SLC and headed to Heber, to get the kids and drop Connor off at home. I also had to be home in time to get myself and the kids ready for family pictures with the Greener family that night-but we were on schedule and I would have plenty of time....or so I thought.

About five miles up the canyon my Mom's car overheated and died. We poured our two water bottles into the water coolant place (sorry I am car illiterate :) let it "cool" for awhile and tried to start it. We drove about 10 feet before it overheated again and we turned the car off.

By this time I was getting panicky. It was looking like there was no way I was going to make it to Heber, get the kids, get back home again, and make it for the family pictures.

Well, to make a long story short we all made it home and it only took 4 men and three vehicles to do it. This was bad luck happening #1.

Oh, and we did make it home for the family pictures and if you would like to view them please go here. The pictures turned out great so at least luck was on my side for a few moments that day...

Fun family pictures! I think they turned out great. I cannot wait to do family pictures with my family as soon as my brother gets home from his mission next month. I absolutely love family pictures. My philosophy is that you can never have enough of them.
