Saturday, the last full day

team Rilma put her in the fancy van. I kept feeling like we had just landed in a flying saucer. The van stopped and when the button was pushed it "knelt" and a ramp magically appeared from the underbelly.
The Church History museum started with Joseph Smith's first vision and went on with the history of the pioneers, immigration and then upstairs the modern day prophet's were honored.

two Angels...... Rilma loved President Gordon B. Hinckley

We walked across the street to the tabernacle just in time for it's daily organ recital by one of the Tabernacle Choir organists, known for his fancy footwork. All the organists that play the noon recitals play their own arrangement of "Come Come Ye Saints." This one ended with full sound shaking our benches

We started the day in a torrential rainstorm. Rilma is outside the Assembly hall and we are in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

By the afternoon the sun was out and so were the brides. I was taking a picture and someone said "Saturday is not the day to take a picture here, too many brides" I said "that's what I am taking pictures of" I think we saw 5-6 on our short walk to the Conference Center.
We saw the actual place where LDS general Conference is broadcast. The Conference center holds 21,000 people and fills up sometimes. The Tabernacle Choir broadcasts come from here in the summer so they can always have room for the many tourists who like to see them perform.
