I love to see the temple

About six months ago we were talking with the kids about the temple and why it is so special inside.  The kids all said they wished they could go inside a temple -- my response, "remember when you got to tour the Columbia River Temple when it was built?"  No one remembered it and then I remembered it was built in 2001 and most of the kids weren't even born yet.  So I quickly looked up which temples were going to be having opening houses and found that the Meridian, ID temple was set to be completed in November. 

We were delighted to spend the weekend with Tavia and Vaughn's amazing family!  They always make us feel so at home and welcomed when we come visit -- which is especially nice since we are usually like a bomb dropping in for one day and then leaving out messes behind. 

The temple was absolutely beautiful.  Although, the open house tour was fast I think we all felt the special spirit that resides in the temple.  Nathan commented afterwards that he noticed how automatically quiet all the kids were when they toured the Celestial room.

It was a crisp morning but the sky was beautiful!
Such a special day!
The rest of the weekend we enjoyed pizza, playing with cousins, going out to a movie at the cheap theater, and going to church with the Kimballs.  We all had such a wonderful time together!

The marvelous Kimball kids!
