Yes, we are LDS.

Unlike most Latter-Day Saints we do not have family in Utah, so it is not somewhere we visit frequently. As a matter of fact, this trip was only my third time to Utah and my children's first time.

We all LOVED it!

Anyone who is LDS, or anyone curious about our beliefs, should visit Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah!

Dayton is 9. He wants to serve a mission when he is 19. "My testimony grew on this trip. I felt the Spirit everywhere I went. "
Emma is 13. She wants to go to BYU, one of the main reasons we took this trip! "My favorite part was the Joseph Smith movie at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. "

I Love To See The Temple

We had many great family moments in Salt Lake. We ate dinner at the Garden Cafe. We visited the conference center, the Church History Museum, the church administration building, and the Beehive House.

It snowed while we were there!

Many of our friends and family members have attended BYU Provo. We are always hearing how great it is! Emma has really grasped onto the idea to go there (Dayton wants to go to Stanford). So we knew we needed to dedicate a few hours to the campus we've heard so much about!

We were very impressed!

I guess we better start saving our money!

We're pulling for you all the way Emma! BYU is the best! Also, I have always thought Salt Lake was a magical place, so glad you got to visit.
