I am really enjoying living in Salt Lake. I think it's a really neat city. And I've said it before, but I love our little neighborhood, and even more now that it's spring. Move over fall, I think I have a new favorite season! I've wanted to go to Temple Square on a Saturday with Jeremy and Pearce to see pretty flowers for a while now, but we've been out of town or have had houseguest. We went yesterday, but it was cold and raining so we just went to the Church History Museum instead and will save Temple Square for another day.
I have had wonderful experiences at Church History sites, and have had my testimony strengthened. Soon after we we walked through the doors there was a large beautiful stained glass artwork of Joseph Smith and his First Vision, along with scripture next to it. [As Joseph knelt and prayed, a brilliant pillar of light fell upon him. In it he saw two Personages. Heavenly Father spoke and said,] “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
I feel a piercing in my chest everytime I hear or read this. I have a strong testimony of Joseph Smith being a latter-day prophet and that he saw God, The Father and The Son. And that he translated the Book of Mormon, additional scripture for our times specifically.
I saw on my friend's blog there is a fun kid's exhibit in the Museum with a Book of Mormon theme.
Pearce loved it and there were so many fun activities.
Nephi's Boat that you could help build and fish from.
Fun little computer games, puzzles, mazes etc
Latin Dancing & dress up. Pearce loves wearing dresses and skirts, so this was fun for her.
It took her a while to warm up to the "Latin" dancing.They had videos and music playing showing you how to dance and spin, etc. I was obviously having fun dancing. Here she is below trying to mimic the video. Love that little tongue wagging.
Felt clothes for wooden dolls.
Growing a little garden.
And just a few photos from today after church modeling her "Easter Dress".
She always does this thing when I say "Let me see your dress/outfit/whatever"... and she twists her hip and her one foot inward. I love it. She looks extra old to me in these photos. Where's my baby girl at?!?!?!
