A trip to the Seattle Temple

In September (or was it October?) our stake president challenged each family in the stake to take a trip to the Seattle Temple before the end of the year. We were encouraged to get dressed in our church clothes and walk around the grounds. Since today was the last day of the year, we figured it was about time. And, it was a good trip.

Joy really wanted her picture taken with this statue. Doesn't she look innocent? It reminds me of how sweet she really is and my responsibility to treat her as such.

I think the kids really fit with this one. Mine are the ones in color. Those bronze ones just agreed to hold still for the picture. You know, the bronze ones, the ones that are actually behaving!

I didn't realize what a cold day it was! I am awfully glad we grabbed the coats, because it was much colder in Seattle than it was at home!

All in all, I am glad for the counsel of our stake president. It was a long drive, but we had some good discussion, and I feel that we have already been blessed. What a blessing it is to have a temple close enough to drive to!

You're roughly about the same distance from a temple there as you were here in Mankato. Although your weather there looks MUCH better than ours here!
