Everyday, while on Temple Square (besides the time I was in Arkansas and Tennessee) I would give tours. I would be assigned to different locations to help guests but when assigned at a gate I could offer incomers assistance and we would always recommend a tour...because we loved giving them! If we had guests interested in a tour, we were very happy to spend the time with them. We would teach facts, tell stories about the pioneers, and share a few basic beliefs about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Each tour was unique it seemed, as questions would vary, people's interest in different portions varied, and some were more gracious then other guests.
After leaving the little get together, Greg and I left to visit Temple Square and see the tulips, my favorite time of year there! We were able to reach Ben and Amanda (the soon to be Mr. and Mrs.) and they met us while we were there. In the meantime, Greg and I walked around together. It was a perfect day, and Temple Square has never been prettier. We both ran around taking pictures with our phones, here is the result!
Green grass, sunshine, flowers, and fountains everywhere.
The perfect place for an afternoon stroll.
Not bad for pictures taken with a phone...I love this one!
Ahh....the blooming flowers on the trees around the Assembly Hall smelt so good and were so pretty!
Ben, Greg, Amanda, and Iris (Amanda's Sister-it was fun to meet her!)
The new "City Creek Center" is just across the street from Temple Square, they compliment each other very well.
Tulips, tulips, and more tulips!
And...more blooms on the trees!
Iris, Amanda, Ben, and Greg
That shimmery silver building, it's the outside of the Tabernacle.
Inside the Assembly Hall.
Coming out of a 3-D movie! (On some random day...)
A new climbing area! Greg's new favorite place to climb. I have yet to go there, but I am anxiously awaiting my chance.
This little gal totally cracks me up! I would be so happy if she would give me the time of day. Maybe someday, but in the meantime, I found her choice of food hilarious and so perfect! Why would a three year old want salad there is an entire table of DESSERTS!? Well, she obviously saw no need for green because look at that beautiful plate full of sugary goodness. Nothing like a pulled pork sandwich with a side of three cookies and two brownies!
