draper temple open house..., you guys are quick!  Yes, as you have guessed, I was able to attend the LDS Draper Temple open house yesterday morning with the Young Women of our ward.  draper_lds_temple

I was excited to be able to take Meagan (my daughter) with me...we had enough tickets and car space, so she woke up bright and early to go with us.  It was a great experience, and so fun to be there with this group of amazing your women who had never been inside a temple...and who talked of how amazing it will be to one day be married in such a beautiful place!

I was going to try to take my camera and take pictures of our group outside of the temple, but there were heated tents set up all around the temple...and it was raining (HARD) we didn't get an opportunity for a photo.  However, I have found some amazing photos on the internet and thought it would be appropriate to share them here. orig_2_0031_30Dec08-734427 orig_6_DETAIL_03_30Dec08-783696 orig_15_WAITING_AREA_30Dec08-735130 orig_7_DETAIL_04_30Dec08-777691 orig_14_ordinance-0021_30Dec08-783128

[I did a google search for photos...and found all of the above photos on this blog...couldn't find his original source, but when I do, I'll credit them...]

So, Emily (or Mike) who left this comment:
