Temple Trip

Last Saturday we had an amazing day.  Our ward planned a big temple trip to the Los Angeles temple. The youth and some pretty incredible moms babysat about 30 kids at the temple apartments so that those who wanted could attend the temple. They had crafts, games, movies, toys, and lunch all prepared for the kids. We were lucky enough to fit in a temple sealing for a lady in our ward who was sealed to her husband (who passed away 2 years ago) and son, as well as do an endowment session. It was such an amazing uplifting 3 hours. We came out of the temple to the grounds covered in Christmas lights!  We went to eat dinner that was provided and then took the kids to tour the grounds, see the Christmas lights, and roll down the big hill!  :) It was such a great day, especially to share it with our children. Elena and Max had so much fun. Here are just some of the pictures we took.

Two amazing kids that didn't fight the whole time!  (or so I was told)

What a great way to enjoy the holiday season!

That is so nice that you could do that. Even better that you could take the kids and enjoy the experience all together. Sounds like you had a great day. The pictures are so pretty.
