we went to the Hogle Zoo, “This is the Place” Monument, and Temple Square…and had a visit with Aunt Mia and Tiegan and Uncle Brent.
Sadie got some snack catchers from Grammy and Grampy, Matt got some nice wool socks, and Matt gave me some razors. He had noticed that I had hairy legs from it being Winter and me not wanting to shave…
Pictures to come later from those. But for now I will just share our millions of pictures from our travels.
Sometimes the best things at places are the statutes you can get close to and take pictures with
But I was surprised to see as many animals as we did see!
Here are the bald Eagles. They were pretty.
We liked the seals. You could see above and underneath. I liked this seals tail. I didn’t know they looked like that!
Then on to the bears. I was super sad the polar bear wasn’t out because she was the new attraction.
Her Daddy loved to try to get the animals attention and dancing for Sadie
Here is a video of Matt trying to make the tiger come get the “little zebra.”
We had a good time. We saw that the “This is the Place” monument was across the street so we decided to go there as well.
Hanging with Brigham and Joseph
The monument is pretty cool. It was really cold and snowing though so we tried to make it quick.
Then we went inside and looked at the museum. So cute huh?
After the monument we stopped by Brent and Mia’s to say hi. It was their anniversary so they were going out. Tiegan had a date also! They were so nice to let us hang out for a minute and gave us some Joe Joes from Trader Joes. (Basically oreos with a peppermint inside).
Then we went to Temple Square. It was still very cold but…
The flying Squirrel.
We went inside to see the Christus and then went and watched this family presentation thing. It was really good.
I felt like there were way less nativities this year…but maybe I am crazy.
We had a good time up there and love this tradition. Although we wouldn’t mind it being a little less wet next time! Hopefully Sadie doesn’t get sick!
