We went up to the top of the Joseph Smith Building and got a great view of Temple Square.
Isn't the ceiling in there amazing? This is the lobby, not sure how they make that stained glass work.
Pictures with Indians.
In log houses near the Church History Museum.
And with the Angel Moroni.
This was really amazing. It is a new exhibit in the South Visitor's center on Temple Square. It is a cut-away, sort of like a doll house showing the rooms inside. I loved being able to figure out where everything is. We Mormons believe in families being sealed together forever and the temple is where that all happens. I loved this exhibit because I think it helps reinforce the idea that the things we do in the temple aren't secret, just very sacred. If you are curious about our temples you can look here for more info.
My kids outside, in front of the temple.
On our way back to the car, had to get a picture leaning over that ornate railing in the Joseph Smith building. I almost had a heart attack when Brittany thought she should hold Josh up so he would show more in the picture. Happily, no children were harmed in taking of this photo.
It was a fun day and my kids enjoyed more than they thought they would!
