They loved it, the people in the gift shop were very nice. They gave the kids a penny with a cross punched out and said something along the lines of "Jesus is the one sent to us" and then three of the crosses that were punched out for the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The view was breathtaking, and the cross is beautiful with its new siding. I would recommend a trip to see this awesome cross. It really is a nice sight to see. You can read about the history HERE
