The Conference Center in Utah

Our Vacation Part 2

We were lucky enough to take a tour of the Conference Center the Thursday before General Conference. It was pretty amazing. The building is beautiful and the roof is just crazy!! It is completely landscaped w/ benches and water features you totally forget you are on a rooftop.

This is what you saw when you looked up above the water feature, it was gorgeous.

While we were in the actual area where conference takes place one of the organists was practicing for conference. It was pretty cool...I would say the only negative thing was the song he was practicing "High On a Mountaintop" was stuck in my head for the rest of the trip. Of course everyone was kind enough to keep singing bars of it just in case I would forget! Sweet of them, huh??!

Peter thought he was so sneaky. He laid himself on the ground then inched himself under the rope that was supposed to be there to keep us from going further. Of course that was no deterrent for him, he then proceeded to run back forth in the chairs until I was finally able to catch him. The lady giving our tour didn't have a very good sense of humor I think she was maybe a little annoyed w/ us. Oh well!

I have to say this was one of my favorite parts of the trip. It was our first time to actually attend General Conference and it was amazing to be in the same room w/ our Prophet and Apostles and of course the Mormon Tabernacle was awesome!
