Aug 6- Morning at Temple Square

Jared's cousin, Camille, is one of the most wonderful people. She married Tyler Singleton, another such wonderful person, on August 6th in the Salt Lake Temple. While we couldn't make it to the wedding, we did make an effort to be in front of the temple in time to see her come out. Apparently, we just missed them! I was told we were seen by cousins driving away from Temple Square as we were walking toward it. It was a good plan, but we encountered some unforeseen behavior/packing/driving/parking obstacles. However, we enjoyed Temple Square for a couple of hours anyway! The kids have never been there, and it's been ages for me.

They touched the temple wall. A lot, actually. I wonder if they know how many members of their family has been married in that very building? I don't even think I know the answer to that.

 It was pretty awesome to go into the tabernacle with the kiddos. Noah and Ellie wouldn't stay for a picture; they wanted to explore so they wandered toward the stairs and missed this priceless shot.
  We went to the Church History Museum, which is impressive. We didn't have time to go far, but it was enough to make us want to go back. I promised we could try to come back later, either that day or another day this trip.
