So last year after a photo shoot at the temple I got the urge for the first time ever to head down to see the lights at Temple Square. It was a busy time for us so I had to schedule the night that we would go so that we would actually go and do it. I felt extra motivated because this seemed like the first year that Stella might be able to really appreciate the lights and maybe even remember going to see them when she gets older, so off we went. My crowd avoidance plan was to arrive on a weeknight just as the sun was going down, and it worked out great! By the time we were ready to go home, it was a lot more crowded. It has been months since this night and I don't remember if it was even that cold, but I do remember Stella's excited reaction when she saw the first group of lights with the temple in the background.
We had a really fun time as a family, even if Mommy (me) kept making pictures get taken. I didn't use a flash and I do wish that I had a camera that was better in low light, but that is a $5,000 issue that I just can't accept right now, and I kind of like how blurry some of these turned out to be. Here's to us for finally getting out and seeing the lights!
