Day 4











Temple Square, we spent the majority of the day looking at the beautiful flowers and touring the conference center. Kids tolerated the millions of pictures, and loved the beauty of everything we saw. Only tragedy, we lost Ivy for a few minutes at the conference center. She had been really great about staying in the stroller, we got on the elevator, got out and headed up on the roof to see the landscaping, Rich was in charge of the stroller, glanced down and no Ivy! Panic!! The slowest elevator ever. I just knew that she would be freaking out, the tour guide felt so bad and took blame, said she is supposed to count heads, seriously cute, but Rich and I will take the blame! I kinda joked that if anyone did take her, they'd bring her right back,(anyone who knows Ivy knows she has a set of lungs on her:) I knew she'd be traumatized. The elevator finally opened and the security guard had Ivy. phew!!!! To all of of our surprise she has a smile on her face, and NO TEARS!! NO TRAUMA? WEIRD!!! The guard said she was just sitting on a chair by the elevator, totally calm! We hugged and kissed her and didn't take our eyes off her again! That was the 1st time I have ever lost a child, scary! I think she was enjoying some peace and quiet....alone:) I hope that it was just because she trusts us and knows we will always be there!

Poor Ivy! That would have scared me to death!!! I'm so glad that a security guard had her.

I'm loving the documenting that you're doing for this trip! You need to make sure that you make a blogbook when you get home!

Drive safe!!
