For the grandparents

July 31, 2016

who complain that I never blog anymore . . .

(which is mostly true)

In the monthly Primary newsletter, there’s always a challenge from the Primary secretary for the children.  It’s usually a scripture or Article of Faith to memorize and recite to her; then they get a treat.  This month’s challenge was to visit any temple and come tell her about it.

So we decided to visit the Payson temple on our way home from Grandma and Poppa’s house on Thursday night.  Miracle of miracles!  The child who never wants his picture taken was more than happy to stand and smile for me!

Little A enjoyed looking at all the flowers.  They all smelled so good too!

Here she’s checking that some of the flowers really do match her shirt.6-28005644464_9fc8599dc8_o

Water fountains are always a big draw as well.

Then Little A screamed all the way to the car because she wanted to go inside the temple instead.  As my mother tells it, I did the very same thing when I was her age and we were at Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

We stopped by Sister W.’s house on our way home so they could tell her all about it.  E will never recite a scripture for her, but was quite excited to finally get a treat for telling her all about the temple he saw.  Maybe that’s not the best motivation (although they’re very generous treats!) but we’re always thankful for a reason to stop and enjoy the beauty of the temple.  We love to see the temple!  1-28338251850_78e2c215f8_o
