Mike is such a joker. I was making our kids a cup of noodles and when I turned around he tells me, "Look I'm finished!"I posted this photo on Instagram and some people actually thought he drew mural in 4 minutes. No! He did not. He is still mastering the skills of stick figured people.
But we still found the good. This is like our new life motto.
After we checked out of our motel we started our adventures.
We went to Twenty Five Main.
On our honeymoon Mike and I were wandering St. George and found this shop. We had no idea what they sold but with a long line out the door; it must be good. So we waited then paid the $2 per cupcake cost and experience the most delicious cake we've ever eaten. But since we didn't know the name or even where this shop was we we're expecting to go there again. But while we were heading out in the morning I mentioned how wonderful it would be if we found that cupcake shop.
Then Mike takes a turn and VIOLA! There it is!
Our kids really wanted to taste the honeymoon cupcakes Mike and I talk about all the time. So we paid the $2.25 per cupcake cost and warned everyone to eat slow!
Our kids finally believed us that these cupcakes were the best ever!
(their cupcakes didn't last very long but that at least have that memory)
We took the tour of this beautiful and amazing historic site.
The missionary looked at our kids (as most adults do) and asked why we weren't in school. My kids always reply that we're homeschooling and this is their school.
I smiled then reminded everyone to pay attention since I'll quiz them later on the facts we learned.

My adorable family!
We found something unusual. The date of completion for the tabernacle was 1875. The missionary who gave us the tour also said the date was 1875. The all-seeing eye plaque inside shows the year. But the outside says 1871. Wonder why?
Ducati being art. There's statues everywhere that people can buy. So she was the best price for me- FREE!
Brigham Young's Winter Home
This home is beautiful! And for a man who had around 40 wives he only took 1 with him to this home. So maybe that's why it's so small. Whatever! :)
Another mantel made of pine wood to look like stone. They were so resourceful.
B. Young's desk that he made himself. He was enjoyed building things with his hands something I can relate too. Mike is always building things too.
Our kids liked the tub/sink/washing machine metal bowl. They thought that was interesting. As well as the waffle iron since we had waffles in the morning.
Mike really liked this picture that hung by Brigham's stairwell. It shows Brigham when he was so young. It has the First Presidency and his 12 Apostles. Look how young they were!
Mike wondering into this white little house. I don't know what this place is but we took a look and got out since it was suppose to be closed. It looked like a meeting house with long benches and a table. But I'm not really sure. Next visit I'll have to ask.
On our way to our next spot Mike and I needed a caffeine boost so we stopped at Swig for some sodas. Exactly what we needed.
This sign hung at Swig and we laughed so much. Mike had to take a picture of it so we could remember this odd sign.
Next was St. George Temple.
Coloring and learning on the touch screens.
I love this picture. The Book of Mormon is printed in 89 different languages. I have 13 different languages already but my goal is to have all 89! It's so amazing how the words of God can be shared in every language.
Cati and the Saint George Christus.
Then we went outside and walked the temple grounds.
Mason also likes palm trees.
Lily wanting me to take her photo.
My cute kids getting blinded by the brightness. Small sacrifice for sitting on holy places.
Strike a pose!
But Cati was on top of the chair dancing and boxing. She must have watched Rocky with us and seen this.
Now Lily and Cati are trying to get inside. Breaking into holy places; that still counts as a good thing right?
This girl is a cutie. IF only she'd like me do her hair. I love playing with her long soft locks.
After walking around I wanted one last picture. So when I tell my kids to be cute this is what I get. Crazy cuteness! My absolute favorite.
After this we picked up some tacos and started driving again. We can't wait to plan another trip down south so we can do all the outdoors activities we wanted to do but couldn't due to rain.
