When we got home from the temple, we had lunch at the apartment. Sister Holm gave us the makings for an Italian Meatball Soup for Christmas. It was delicious! After lunch we drove over to Chapin so Lisa could see where people in our branch live. Then we drove into downtown Columbia.
Lisa got a few shots of the giant fire hydrant (Clifford's fire hydrant)
And a few shots of the tunnel wall mural. I hadn't noticed before, but the mural is an optical illusion.
No matter which side of it you stand on, it looks like you're headed straight for the tunnel!
We parked across from the State Capitol
and Lisa waited at least 10 minutes to cross the street and get a good shot of the building.
After a SHORT tour of downtown and a stop at Mast General Store, we came home to make dinner. Salsa chicken had cooked in the crock pot all afternoon, and Lisa and I made tortillas. I made the dough and cooked. Lisa pressed the tortillas. She got very good at it! After dinner, there was time for a quick stop next door at Cold Stone Creamery. Then we went to "Frozen." It was great having Lisa with us!!!
Had to get a picture, so we could send it to Dad. He looks forward to our Cold Stone visits every week.
