On Sunday, church was cancelled. All Utah members, 8 and older, were supposed to attend a rebroadcast of the Provo Tabernacle Temple dedication. We decided that we did not want to take shifts, as the adults in our home, to attend a broadcast so after a lazy morning at home, we went downtown to Temple Square and did a little church history tour of our own.
It was a very beautiful day, the first day of spring. There is nothing better than 70 degrees, bright sunshine and well behaved children.
While in the visitor center, we were looking at a world map and Ross asked the boys if they could find Lithuania. While they were all pointing trying to pin point the exact location, a very kind woman walked up to us and said she could help them find Lithuania. She was from Lithuania. After a very quick conversation and the sharing of pictures we figured out that though she attended the Russian speaking branch in Vilnius, Lithuania, she knew Elder Petersen. I had Ross take a very unflattering picture of the two of us (it was not intended to be as such) and we parted ways.
The day ended with a walk around the Daybreak Lake to burn off the excess energy of three young boys and some crazy double overtime basketball games.
I'd say it was a pretty great day.
