We were able to take a trip out to Utah this summer. It was a family reunion of sorts for us. It had been eight years since my siblings, our spouses and children had all been together! And five years for Ryan's side. It was SO good to see everyone, watch the kids play with their cousins, and meet some nieces and nephews for the first time.
Our first Monday there we visited Temple Square.
The first stop was at the Conference Center
Next was lunch and we got to see the cubicles my parents work in for their part time mission.
At lunch we ran into one of our favorite Sister Missionaries. She is serving on temple square but was able to come out our way for a while and serve at the sites next to us.
Then we went to see the temple up close
These girls cracked me up! They wanted pictures of "just" them, everywhere! I didn't post all of them though
Can you find the hiding, pouting boy?
The last stop was the Church History Museum
There was a wonderful exhibit geared towards the kids. They had fun trying to lift the gold plates.
Dancing! They could have done this all day!
There were a bunch of other centers which is didn't get pictures of. If we lived closer I think we would definitely spend more time there.
The exhibit next to the children's one had quilts! Of course I had to stop and look at these.
