Chad and I didn't take our kids when we went to the Draper Temple open house in January. We didn't think we could keep them calm and quiet that long. And that was probably true. However we decided that we would take them to "Our Temple" is what the kids call it. Right down the street from our house, basically, and literally down the street from our old house. The kids enjoyed the golf cart ride up to the temple from the parking lot, they wanted to go on that "ride" again when we left :) Austin's favorite part of the temple was the baptismal font because of the oxen and Alyssa's was the celestial room, because it's sparkly. Austin, Alyssa and their cousins Abby and Haylie were so reverent and really enjoyed walking through the temple. My mom walks with a cane and she rode the elevator and we got separated for about 20 minutes but the kids even sat still while we were waiting, I was very impressed. The kids enjoyed their own water bottles and cookies afterward. It was an amazing experience to be in the sealing room with our kids looking into the mirrors seeing our family go on and on and on and on. I am so thankful we will be a family forever. I hope you were all able to make it through the open house. We are excited for the dedication this weekend.
The day we went it was so hot and SOOOO windy
windy doesn't even describe it, it was border line tornado :)
