Draper Temple Open House

We had the privilege of going to the Draper Temple Open House!!! We were so excited to be able to take our kids through the Temple! We went with the Carters and the Baldwins and it was fun to be all together. We parked at a church building and rode a bus up to the Temple grounds...Who said you couldn't fit 6 people in 2 seats?!?
The Temple was BEAUTIFUL! It was so special to be able to walk with our kids and see them feel the spirit in the Temple!!! Brayden, Adelyn and Sophie loved it!!! It was incredible to be stand all together and look at the facing mirrors in the Sealing Room as a family. It made me excited for the time when we will be able to all be in a dedicated Temple together! Words can't even describe the feelings that I felt as a mother seeing all my children in the Temple. I'm so grateful for the knowledge that I have that FAMILIES CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER!! That's what I want more than anything!!! I love attending the Temple with LeGrand, but taking the kids with us was so special!! I hope they will always remember this and the feelings that we felt in the House of the Lord!
Of Course after the Temple, we had to make a day of it....We all enjoyed Lunch at Apple bee's!! Yum!

When the Sacramento Temple opened up here it was the best thing ever! My husband and I are the only members from our families, and it was so neat to share that experience with our families, and show them the temple. I'm glad you guys had a great time, and it is so cool for the kids to see it too!

What a wonderful experience. Chelsea and Jed got to go through with Jed parents and they said the same thing...that is was wonderful. What a neat experience to take your children through. I bet they will always remember that experience...especially Brayden who is so close to baptism. What a beautiful temple!

Being in the sealing room with my little family was my favorite part too. What a wonderful experience. I really miss you! We'll have to get together soon. Wish you could have come over last Friday.
