One bonus of attending a Utah wedding in December . . . getting to see the lights at Temple Square.
Our kids (like all kids) love Christmas lights. As we drove around our little town the kids would ooo, and ahhh and go nuts over the lights in the neighborhood. I would just smile, shake my head, and tell them, "you just wait until we get to Utah." You have no idea.
We rode Trax to Temple Square and when we got close Anna said, "I'm going to close my eyes so it's a surprise." So cute. Even as we exited the train and began walking to the crosswalk she kept her eyes closed. "I want it to be a surprise."
Finally I told her we were there and to open her eyes . . . . oh and what a surprise it was. Just look at this face.
We enjoyed a great evening walking around to see the lights. And it wasn't even that cold -- actually kinda pleasant. The one oops of the evening was having to dispose of Anna's panties in the restroom trash can. Didn't quite get there in time. She was so bewildered and confused by the situation and feeling -- "but I don't have any panties" she said over and over. :)
The lights are quite a sight. And there are several nativities (some from other countries/cultures) scattered around the grounds. Just the thing to put you in the Christmas spirit.
