We went to Temple Square Thursday to see the lights. It started off magical - as we were walking from the parking lot to the temple we could hear the faint sound of bagpipes. I had major flashbacks to Scotland - there were many times when I could hear bagpipe music while we were out knocking on doors - but rarely did I ever see the piper. This time I saw the piper - he was right in front of the temple gates and was mixing Christmas tunes in with the "normal" pipe music. The boys even got a treat when he broke out in some of the Star Wars songs. I could have stayed all night just to listen to him - but kids pulled me away and onto the lights.
The twins really liked the lights - they love to drive around town and see the lights too - and the boys were somewhat impressed as well (it has been a few years since we were last here). Here is a picture - can't capture the lights, but at least you can see that we were there.
