Took My Kids to Temple Square

Monday daddy was sick so the kids and I took off for a day of whatever came our way. We had a few errands to run (pick up the disc Holly left at a local boutique because she was late for a wedding out of town, meet Angie at South Towne Mall to deliver said disc, plus mine, so she could choose favorites from her engagement session, drop off pictures to Matt from Lisa as a surprise - I love GOOD surprises). Gardner Village was our next stop. We went to wander and found these... I almost can't stand how cute my boy is!!! Inside these cups are Baboa Tea thingys - not too sure what they're made out of but they're an Asian version of a smoothy that was VERY refreshing. Our families favorite holiday is Halloween. These boots aren't made for walkin'. We ended up at Temple Square (got a sweet parking spot in the SHADE) so the kids could just run around and look. The Assembly Hall was open so we walked in to take a look - just a little chapel inside with the organ against the back wall so we turned back around since that's not the funnest place for kids. Took a look at a couple of statues then a sister missionary told us about the new family exhibit in the north visitor's building that the kids might like. Alright, let's head that way. Inside that building there's a mock-up Jeruselem, huge paintings depicting stories in the scriptures and the Christus. Ah the Christus. Jack asked me to come with him to the 11' statue of Christ to show me something he learned. He pointed out the holes in His hands and in His feet. Very nice! We were having a lovely time when Piper pointed out something too. "Mom," looking at Jesus' face, "he's so CUTE!" Thanks for the buzz kill. :o) Then we went through the little family exhibit and the kids were so well-behaved. The sister missionaries asked them (mostly Jack) questions and they answered politely. The guy acting as the dad is CJane's husband, so that was fun to point out to the kids that he was at our house for dinner recently. He did a FABULOUS job ;o) On our way home we stopped by Karen & Heather's for a little visiting and ended up home about 8pm (after getting Wendy's on the way). Lovely day.

Yes, Jesus is CUTE! I imagine that is exactly how a child would see him. How wonderful for you and yours.

I love the photos - the drink things... if they're what I think they are - they're fruit or bean paste flavors with tapioca in 'em.
