On Saturday our ward had a wonderfully planned day at the temple. I was able to take Kirsten and her friends Madelyn and Macy down there that afternoon. It was such a beautiful day - in the 60's and overcast, and they enjoyed time mingling with their friends by the fountain.
While we were singing, the youth were finishing up their session of baptisms. Then the kids divided into groups and the youth took them around the temple grounds to share a presentation about the temple. Did you know that the Angel Moroni is 7 feet tall and that there are 40,000 marble tiles on the outside of the temple?!
I treated the girls to ice cream on the way home, which seems to be the only part they really remember. I am glad that I was able to take them though. I know that the more they experience the special spirit that is at the temple, the more important that it will become in their lives.
