Family Saturday

So what's a family to do when you need to get out of the house?  Head to the LDS visitors center!  It really was a great thing to do together as a family.  We were able to show Marin some really BIG pictures of Christ and tell her the story behind them.  Plus, it was FREE!  I can't tell you how happy I was that we were able to take the kids.

The room had a succession of pictures, starting with Christ's birth and ending with his ascension to heaven.

Learning about baptism!

 Happy boy!
 Daddy and Owen
 I love this picture, Owen reaching for Christ.  This part of the visitors center is so beautiful, and has a large white statue of Christ.  Painted all around the walls and ceiling are a gorgeous rendition of the cosmos and is completely awe inspiring.  It really makes you think beyond this world.
 Part of the ceiling, so so so beautiful.

 And Owen has his head turned in this one.
 Our loving Savior, Jesus Christ.

 A kiss.
 We had to stop by the fountain on the way out, Marin was clamoring to see some water, funny girl.

After the visitors center, we rushed home and then went to drop the kids off at my friends house so Kristoffer and I could drive *back to the temple to do a session.  It had been a while since we have done a session together, and it was so nice to be inside the quiet walls and reverent peace of the temple.  Truly, a suave to an achy soul. 

Sunday after church we drove to Wyoming to visit grand-dad and Sallie.  It was fantastic to breath in such clean, crisp Wyoming air.  We had a super yummy Sunday dinner together and just spent time chatting and hanging out.  It was so nice to just be an hour and a half away from home!
