Temple Square Lights

We took the girls down to enjoy the lights at temple square.
 A few tips:
      a. dress warm
      b. arrive early before the lights are on so you can see all the visitor center stuff first and then enjoy the lights.
      c. hot cocoa is a must have
We hung out in the visitor's center and the girls were absolutely amazed by the little house display that had television screens for windows playing mormon ads.  They could have been content there alone.  Next of course is the open model of the Salt Lake Temple.  Nate and I were married here so it was fun for the girls to see the miniature rooms like a dollhouse display.  We walked past a model of Angel Moroni and Katelyn exclaimed, "Look it's the whistler!!!"  We had a fun filled night watching Abby stare with open wonder at the Christus Statue and adoringly squeal, "Neigh" at all the horse-drawn carriages.  Sarah mostly snuggled and of course they all were oohing and ahhing over the lights.

Sarah gave up on walking early in the night...
 Katelyn taking in the lights
 Everyone is starting to really feel the cold
 the light display
it looks like there is fire coming down...
 Slowly kids are making dibs on mom's layers
 in the restaurant where it's nice and warm
finally peeling the layers
