Trip to Salt Lake

We went to Utah a few weekends ago to see the baptism and priesthood ordination of our niece Ellie and nephew Robbie. On our way down, we stopped at Temple Square to see the Christmas lights. It was snowing like crazy, but it stopped for about 10 minutes and that is when we snapped most of these photos. We spent the night in West Jordan at Tasha's sisters house then went down to American Fork to see the Eppersons.

It was dang cold. We had the whole crew pretty well covered up. We were cruising through Temple square and this older couple passed by us, the women stopped in front of us and turned around and starting counting our kids. You could actually see her lips moving as she counted; I'm not making this stuff up. Tasha just knew I was about to make some wise crack, something along the lines of "it's a good thing we don't have more than 10 kids because I'd hate to see you have to take off your shoes to keep counting." Nonetheless, Tasha gave me "the look" and I just smiled at the couple instead.

Gracie standing in front of the Christus statue. Anyone that knows Gracie well enough knows she was about to burst out in song and dance. There were quite a few people in the room on a Friday night and I had to try and contain the wee one just a little bit. She was still excited to be there.

Gunnar, Jake, and Gavin. The baptism was held at the American Fork tabernacle. It is an old tabernacle, pretty neat to explore and these three boys were trying their best not to get into trouble, but when I grabbed them and snapped this photo they were headed to the basement.
