Spring!






So, I had Stake Conference in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square (it was so fun having church on Temple Square! I felt like a pioneer!) Since the weather was so nice (it had rained the night before and the morning of), I decided to take advantage, so I took my camera with me so I could wander Temple Square and take pictures of the grounds. The weather was perfect--not too hot, not too cold. It also smelled WONDERFUL because of the tulips and the lilacs. Holy Cow!!! Here are some pictures...enjoy!

You are quite the photographer! I really am impressed. The third picture of the temple is my favorite. You should print that off and frame it. Seriously. I'd buy it.

P.S. I LOVED Angels and Demons (the book). I actually liked it better than the Da Vinci Code, but that just might be me. Enjoy!
