There was a place to touch some sting rays. I touched one of course, but Logan's arms were too short to reach all the way down. I don't think he minded though, because I let him play in the water for quite awhile.

We went to the Draper Temple open house on Friday morning, and on Thursday I was telling Logan that my family was coming and we were going to see the temple. I said, "Logan do you want to see the inside of the temple?" He stood there for a minute and then he sang, "I'll go inside someday, to feel the spirit, to listen and to pray. For the temple is a house of God, a place of love and beauty . . . " I started laughing. Good connection buddy, I guess someday turned out to be Friday, not exactly what the song is implying, but going inside anyway.
I loved going through the temple. The entire thing is gorgeous. It is a reminder about how sacred temples are and all the details that go into making such a special house of the Lord. Logan did pretty well, it is quite a journey for a toddler, and I hope that he was able to feel how important the temple is and make some kind of a connection between going to the temple open house and the songs he sings in Nursery. It was fun to have my mom and dad, and Chrissy, Brian and Akasha come with us.

Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.
He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, mind, my heart;
I thank Him rev’rently
For all his creations, of which I’m a part.
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me.
