After dropping Eli off at the airport on his way to a med school interview in Vermont (keep your fingers crossed!!!!!), Tan and I headed to Salt Lake to visit some LDS church sites. It was the first cold day of the fall but it was still beautiful with all the flowers and blue skies. I am impressed at how well the church keeps up the gardens and landscaping. (I loved how BYU was the same way.) Tanner was more interested in watching the construction workers standing behind me. He also really liked watching the fountains.
Tanner was so cute when he saw the statue of Jesus. He started bouncing up and down and jabbering until I put him down. He crawled right to the base of the statue and kept reaching up toward Jesus and "talking" to him. That little act just melted my mommy heart! He didn't do that with other statues. I gave him a pass along card with a picture of Jesus on it and he carried it around all day. Can you say precious?!
We also visited the Hall of the Prophets where there are paintings of all the current apostles and statue busts of the current prophet and past prophets since Joseph Smith. Tanner's favorite room was the Arnold Freiberg art room. He loved it because he had a giant room to crawl in! I loved it because most of Freiberg's original Book of Mormon paintings are there and they are really neat to see in their original form.

Growing up, my mom took my siblings and I to Wheeler Farm all the time. I couldn't remember much about it except for the trees (which have been called "Wheeler Farm trees" ever since, no matter where I see that type of tree), and the hen house that we played in. After our time in Salt Lake, Tan and I headed to Wheeler Farm. He has a thing for animals, especially ducks and dogs, so I knew he'd love it. And oh how he loved it!
Ok ok, Wheeler Farm is great, but the REAL reason we all went together was because my sister, Aly, has had a lifelong dream of milking a cow. Dream big Al, dream big. When I was there with just Tan, I found out that you can milk a cow for only $0.50 everyday at 5:00pm! So we took an excited Aly to Wheeler Farm to fulfill her dream. That is the cheapest fulfillment of a dream! What did you think Al?? Was it everything you ever hoped for?!

Ever heard of these books? Eli's mom read them to Eli as a child so she bought us a copy a couple years ago. I showed Tanner how to "draw" on the driveway with chalk, like Harold and his crayon. He really just ended up crawling around with the chalk in his hand and getting his clothes really dirty. Still cute though!
