(The temple does not stink...We only took one picture in front of the temple because people were waiting...and this is what we got.)
I've never visited Utah and felt so much like a tourist. We visited temple square on our trip and we were the sight seers from Texas. For any of you who have not visited Temple Square, it is worth the trip...whether you are LDS or not. It is gorgeous. I have never seen a block of buildings so well kept...so well landscaped, in any other down-town capital city, in any other state, anywhere. It is breathtaking.
As I've mentioned before, Parker loves everything to do with church. I wish I could remember everything he said and did while we were there. I remembered to write down just two.
He walked in the building where President Monson works and sat down in the lobby. He said he was not leaving until he saw President Monson. Parker was sure President Monson would be happy to see him. We assured him he would be but that he was really busy. Parker's response was, "Why is President Monson busy? Is he cleaning that big statue thing or something?" (He was referring to the big statue of Christ in the visitor center.)
Parker has always looked forward to being a missionary when he gets older. When we were leaving temple square, he said, "I want to be a prophet and a missionary when I grow up...like Alma."
Parker sounds like my golden child or something. All my crazies are great. They all had a good time. He's just the oldest who says the most funny and intelligent things...so they get written down the most often. All the boys seemed to enjoy Temple Square. They were happy to be there and had so many smart questions and funny comments.
This is the only picture of Gray at Temple Square and I'm only in 3 pictures from the entire trip. So I suppose I'll include it.
