Colored Lights

On Monday we went to the LDS Temple to see the Christmas lights.  They put up over 500,000 and it is a beautiful display.  It was a perfect evening to go with temperatures in the low 50s as compared to last year when it was barely above 20 degrees.
They also have a nativity scene with a recording in the background continuously telling the story of Jesus' birth from the New Testament.  The boys were mostly interested in "riding" the camel.
 Isaac made us promise he could ride on a real camel someday.  I have no doubt we'll be able to make good on that promise.  Though, having ridden a camel myself, I can vouch for them being not all that comfortable.
 After going inside the Visitor's Center to look around at more Christmas decorations, we decided we had seen what we came for and headed back outside to go home.  There is a nightly musical performance during the festival of lights, but we were pretty sure we couldn't talk the boys into sitting through an hour of Suzuki flutes.
 Our last stop before piling into the car was to take a picture of Isaac and his favorite tree.  There are five more pictures just like this in front of other trees.  He just couldn't decide which he liked the best.

It looks so beautiful there.

Not many parents can make good on a promise to ride a real camel. That's impressive!
