Temple Square

One of the things I really wanted to do with my kids while in Utah was Temple Square. It is one of the most beautiful places, and they already love temples, so I thought they would thoroughly enjoy it! We ended up having 4 adults to 18 kids, so it was a little bit crazy, but we had so much fun!
The bottom right is my good friend Meagan, who came along because Molly throwing up thwarted our plans to hang out earlier. We took a photo of both of us on her phone, and I don't have it yet. It was SOOO much fun to see her in person! (we talk on the phone all the time)
The water fountain at City Creek Mall was so much fun! They even had a water show (the fountains go up and down set to music) while we were there eating lunch, I loved it!!!!
SLC temple and reflection pool
The flowers were SOOOOO pretty!
Elena was definitely enjoying the heat, haha.

This is one of my very, very favorite places to go and it never seems to get old for me. My kids knew right off who it was, and it was fun (albeit chaotic) to sit and chat a bit with them about the Savior.
The flowers outside Brigham Young's house. I want that at my house someday!!!

The church history museum was a bit of a let-down for all of his. We had saved it for last because it was something for the kids to look forward to, but they've rearranged since any of us have been there and cut down the kids section by about half. So what little area there was happened to be seriously overcrowded and loud and it was not too pleasant. So we went around to other areas of the museum instead, and besides the missionaries finding Sebas when we lost him (oops!) we had a really good time. This is on my list of dates to go on solo with my husband for unlimited hours...along with a lot of other things haha.

I had such a great time with my sisters and my mom and Meagan. We did a lot but we got to see a lot and I just really love being able to delve back into that pioneer spirit and remember the price that they paid for us to have the ability to enjoy our church and all of its blessings. Thank you, pioneers!
