sometimes i forget

Sometimes i forget what great activities, FREE activities that is, that are within a quick drives distance. Sunday after church we headed into Salt Lake City to the Church History Museum. I always love museums, no big surprise, but the kids ended up loving it too.
There were great pioneer relics and artifacts from the early days of the church.
Angel Moroni and angel oliver, one of which tops our temples.
The kids reenacted the nativity...what good sports.
Mr. Leprechaun loved the "ba ba's".

On the second level was a great area themed "I Am A Child Of God" with interactive activities for children.

There was also an abundance of wonderful artwork- glass windows, paintings, sculptures, and handiwork done by early relief society sisters.

Our favorite part was the many polish nativities on the main floor... carved from wood and painted in such vibrant colors, they really got us in the mood FOR CHRISTMAS!!

We can't wait to come back to see the lights on Temple Square in a week!
