Sunday: Rest and Regroup

Sunday, May 30:
After a busy and long week of study and research, the girls had a day off today since the Family History Library was closed. We needed the day to get caught up and regroup for another grueling week of "fun!" We spent this day by having a Sunday breakfast out on the town, doing a little shopping at a local mall and taking a walk around the Temple Square area. It was a gorgeous day here in Salt Lake after a few days of chilly temperatures and blustery winds. It seemed good to venture out into the real world and meet some living people for a change! The gardens in the Temple Square are beginning to mature and will be beautiful again this year. We always enjoy taking time to see and "smell" the gorgeous flowers as we tour the grounds. We discovered that there is a replica of the Temple on display in the South Visitors Center within the Temple Square. It was surrounded today by visitors and we could not even get very close to see it. It is an accurate scale model of the inside and includes all the tiny details of furniture and lighting etc. We took some photos and have included one of the real towering Temple walls as well as one taken of the scale model. There is also a video and photo website which features the Temple model here if you would like to take a closer look. It is quite an awesome little display. Enjoy one of our flower photos too, wish everyone could see the sights with us! We will soon get back to work looking for our ancestors and remembering them all on this Memorial Day. Our soldiers, fishermen, spies, mothers, fathers, crooks, laborers, and ministers--all.

To our loved ones gone: we salute you and look forward to meeting you soon, maybe even this Memorial Day, 2010- in the halls of the Family History Library.
