Temple Square....Salt Lake Utah

We had the most amazing time in Utah at Temple Square! We had our own person tour guide through it all starting with Uncle John.

The refective pool has very special meaning to Donnie and I. I had gone on a trip with a friend and went to Idaho and Utah. Donnie and I were just dating at the time and it was our first time being away from each other. So he wrote me this letter and I couldn't open it until I was sitting at the reflective pool! Talk about torture for I had to go to Rexburg first and then the next day to Utah! So by the 2nd day we went to Temple square and saw the sites and I was able to open the letter while I was sitting by the refective pool. It was the most romantic and spiritual letter I have ever received. He shared his testimony and hinted at his love for me! For us being there together felt like we came full circle.

Here we are at the original conference center...Bryce was starting not to feel good and started to throw a fit, which everyone heard!

We are so greatful to have found some sisters that were willing to give us a tour. I loved them and they were so great with Emma and teaching her things. Here they are showing Emma how the Pioniers cut the granit into blocks for the Temple. She is showing how smooth the side they did by hand vs. by machine.

The best tour guides ever!

Just some of my favorite pictures I took.

Bryce was in awe on how tall the Temple was.

So cute!! Daddy and Uncle John let her knock on the door of the temple but explained what it takes to enter the Temple when she is older.

When I saw this statue....the spirit was so strong in my heart that I couldn't control my crying. I am so greatful for the Priesthood and thankful to have it in my home.

Love this picture!

Uncle John and Emma!

Out of several attempts we got at least one picture with our sickie boy that was a keeper!

Daddy and Emma learning time....

Bryce just wanted to play or cry.....
We are so greatful we were able to go on this trip and see the Temple and family. Great memories!
