Sunday evening we drove to Salt Lake City. Sam wanted to take pictures of the temple for his photojournalism assignment. We arrived just as the Christmas fireside was starting so it was too crowded to park. I dropped Sam off and he went in to Temple Square to take pictures.
We circled around, picked up Sam and then the rest of the kids wanted a turn. So Grandma Martha agreed to take the whole group while I drove around the city again. I didn't know there was an ice skating rink by the Marriott. Caitlin loves to ice skate...we'll have to do that sometime.
Monday I brought home a Christmas tree. We spent the evening cleaning and decorating the house.
We got a surprise visit from some friends from the ward. They knew our townhouse has no coat closet so we had a big pile of coats in our stairwell. They came to our rescue with a drill and coat hooks. We love the new system.
