Cub Scout Outting

While mom and dad were here we had an outting with the cub scouts. Treats were made for the temple workers and delivered by the boys. We saw the temple from the back side and the parking structure being built. It was a fun and educational trip.

We learned about the architectural plans, the temple Historian, and the themed carvings in temple. The Brigham City Temple theme is peach blossoms! They can be seen all around the outside. The boys enjoyed handing out treats and asking question. 

See the blossoms?

Then we walked across the street and toured the Tabernacle!

Mom even got to play the organ! It sounded very impressive!

All of the wood (which is soft woods like pine) was hand painted to look like more expensive hard wood. Some of the workers painted their names as knots in the wood. Willie is the name of the 87 year old man who guided our tour. He helped reno the Tabernacle 50 years ago.

Each child got to say their name in the microphone from the pulpit so they can now say, "I spoke at the Tabernacle!"

Overall a very good field trip!
