We figured the line would be about 5 minutes, then we would do the tour, and then go out to dinner.
We ended up standing in line, in an underground parking garage for an hour, at dinner time, with 5 kids.
Amazingly, the kids were very patient, they didn't complain, and they just waited out the hour. I honestly think that somehow they felt the peace and sacredness of the temple, just by being so close to it. It was actually really neat.
The tour was great, and the temple is beautiful. The inside was so clean, calm, beautiful and peaceful, and the outside is stunning! I LOVE this temple.
It was neat to see the kids get to look around this "mysterious" special place, and to answer questions. They especially loved the baptismal font. I literally had to drag Luke away from it.
It was a very neat experience for our family.
We didn't end up eating until after the kids bedtime, but they were such great troopers.
The temple truly does bless families, even in the smallest of ways.
|Bet you can't tell the sun was in our eyes, and the dude taking the photo kind of missed the rest of the temple. Oh well.|
I love the temple.
