The meeting is broadcast all over the world so we could have watched it at our local stake center, but my hubby and I wanted to start another tradition, so we decided we'd take each child, when they were twelve, to attend the YW (Young Women's) meeting or the Priesthood Session of General Conference (held bi-annually).
ANYWAYS.... it was so neat to be able to make a quick weekend trip--just us two! We were able to walk all over Temple Square and see a lot. She is only about 4 inches shorter than me now, so she was able to keep up with my crazy-fast walking pace. Walking double-time meant that we were able to visit several places and go on a few tours. I love being able to zip in and out of crowds!
We used to live in Provo, UT back when my hubby and I were students at BYU. I've only been back to UT twice since graduation. Only one of those times did we visit Temple Square but that was just to snap a few pictures in the North Temple Visitor's Center.
The last time I really toured anything here was back when she was 14 months old (when hubby and I were still students). Which means, I didn't see anything because I was keeping track of her.
|At the Conference Center and restless, restless, restless!
11 years later, she is relishing every tour and listening to every word and asking intelligent and deep questions. She is a life-long learner for sure. We had several moments to ponder and feel the Spirit. So precious.
Looking forward to returning when child #2 hits the mark.
