DC Primary Temple Trip

I took the boys (Don was in Canada for a Nuclear Medicine Conference) to the Washington DC LDS Temple today for a Primary activity. I got totally lost so we ended up being late but did manage to make it in time for the adorable group shot with our friends from the Jones Falls Ward Primary.  The Primary Presidency is going to submit the pic. to The Friend magazine.

We walked around the temple grounds then stopped by the Visitor’s Center. I thought the boys might complain about it being boring, they actually really enjoyed it. Jayden especially liked watching the interactive movies about Helaman’s army and the journey of Lehi and his family.

Before heading home we had a picnic and checked out church’s bookstore. I got them cases for their scriptures and a piece of UT fudge, yummy.  It was a pleasant day.

Why We Don’t have TV

Parents need to watch this Consuming Kids: The Commercialization of Childhood.

We have decided to use our TV only for watching movies. I subscribed to FIOS and it lasted 1 week. The kids asked me if they could watch it all through out the day. They would turn it on themselves and pick a show. They started saying “I want that” to almost every commercial. I found it very annoying.  I am surprised I lasted a week.

After I unsubscribed to it they were bummed for a couple days and then forgot about it. They play together and make up things to do when they are not engrossed in flashing images and commercial brainwashing.

Click below to watch a great video. I totally agree.
