Spring Break 2013 PICTURES!!!

This has been a fun spring break for our family!  We still have one week to go, but I want to share our pictures so far!

Easter Goods!
Ready for Church Easter Morning
 Later that week after Master Chief was done with work we packed up and headed to Grandma Great's house!!!

Visiting Grandma Great's friend who has deer for pets!
Watching the deer eat
Then we went up to some other neighbors of Grandma Great's who have donkeys and a miniature horse.  Miss Piggy was a little afraid to get in there to pet the horse, but soon she found it was quite easy!

Back at Grandma Great's house we played outside on the laundry swing.  This will be gone the next time we see Grandma Great because she'll be tearing down her house so she can build a new one with my Aunt!  Mama spent many hours playing on this growing up!
Soon we had to leave and make our way south.  First we stopped at Mama's best friends house where were supposed to drop in, surprise her and leave in a matter of minutes.  I think we spent a good hour there talking, laughing and just having a great time.  Her oldest is betrothed to Miss Piggy, so we thought it would be funny to take a picture of the two of them.  I'm not sure how funny they thought it was though!!!
Her youngest is just a little older than my youngest and those two are two peas in a pod.  They played so well together, but both moms know that they could never be left alone for 2 seconds because they are both trouble makers!  They were quite the pair.  Perhaps they should be betrothed as well because when we told them to hold hands they were all too excited to do so!
 After leaving my best friends house we continued south to Salt Lake and to Temple Square.  We enjoyed walking around the grounds of the temple, seeing the beautiful flowers and statues.
Kermit wanted lots of pictures taken, he loves the temple so much and wanted to show him hugging the temple!  He said he never wants to let go.

 We got to go inside the tabernacle and show the kids where General Conference used to be held.
 Then we walked over to the Visitors Center.  Kermit wanted his picture taken in front of the building.
 Inside the Visitor Center is a beautiful statue of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Then we walked across the street to the new Conference Center.  They have a pretty waterfall that falls from the top of the Conference Center to the ground that was really neat!
 Inside the Conference Center was magnificent!  It seats 21,000 people, not a bad seat in the entire place and we listened to the organist practice for General Conference. 

After we left the Conference Center Kermit really wanted a picture of him with Angel Moroni, which is the gold statue on top of the temple you see in the distance.

 We were getting hungry, so we found a Noodles and Co for dinner.  Our girls were being quite silly.

Afterwards we went to our Uncle and Aunts house where the kids played, the dads played and the moms did the mom thing!  We made our way back home on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a relaxing day Sunday watching General Conference.  It was fun for the kids to see Conference because we had just been where the magic happens!
