Salt Lake City, Utah

As mentioned on a previous post, I attended a continuing education conference in Salt Lake City a couple weekends ago.  We left on Thursday afternoon and I sat in class all day Friday and Saturday while Russ and the three younger kids hung out at the hotel and explored the area.

One of the main attractions in Salt Lake City is the LDS Temple Square.  Russ and the kids explored this on Friday afternoon as it was just walking distance from our hotel. 

Since only "baptized members who are qualified and prepared" can enter the temple they just walked around the grounds.

The century old Assembly Hall

Definitely spring in Salt Lake City

Inside the Assembly Hall where they give daily concerts

Inside the Mormon Tabernacle

After Russ and the kids picked me up from the hospital where the conference was held we detoured on a side street to get this picture of the Capitol building.  Love the little boy in the bottom left corner.
We took the picture of the Capitol building then just turned around and took this picture of the beautiful mountains.

We walked by the stadium on our way to supper Friday night.

Saturday Russ and the kids explored Cottonwood Canyon which is about 30 minutes south of Salt Lake City.  They love hiking and the weather was amazing.

They love this picture because it shows how high they climbed.

Evidently, Lydia fell into this cactus and had a bugger of a time getting the spines out of her leg.  She had a bunch of nice little puncture wounds on her leg for a few days.

When they got back from the Canyon, I wasn't out of class yet so they had a picnic by the Capitol building and then explored the grounds and inside.

They picked me up around 4:30 and we grabbed a bite to eat before heading home to the big boys!  First time experiencing an In-N-Out Burger.
