With our tummies full, we headed a few blocks north to the cemetery. We found Tim's great great grandfather's grave; Henry Ballard. We sat at the site and Tim told us the story of how Henry's daughter gave him a newspaper printed only 3 days earlier in England. His daughter said that 2 people gave her the paper and told her to give it to her dad. Henry, who was a bishop, went to the temple president and showed him the paper along with telling him about what his daughter said. The mysterious thing is that it took months for items to travel from England to the U.S. back in the 1800's. The newspaper contained many names and dates of Henry's ancestors. The temple president told Henry that there are some people on the other side waiting for their temple work to be done. We then walked back to our car, but along the way I was looking for the oldest person. It was actually a Ballard who was born in 1799.
On our way home we stopped by a sporting good store and bought a 15 foot trampoline. The kids were ecstatic. I am surprised it only took us an hour to set it up. The kids love it. It is wearing out Teagan. Today at church, he ended up sleeping during the last few minutes of his class and all through Relief Society.
I made a video of our weekend. These are some good memories.
