Sunday Best - Easter

Jon and I were looking at these pictures and he said, "Wow - our kids are getting big."  Here's their Easter pics from two years ago:

Provo City Center Temple

Before Mormon temples are dedicated, anyone can go in to have a tour.  We got to do that as a family at the temple in Provo.  The girls loved seeing the beautiful rooms and we didn't have any tantrums (even though we had to get there by 7:30 am to do the tour).  

Suzy spent much of the introductory video, explaining why Mormon's build temples, hugging me and telling me that she felt so good.  It was so sweet.  She also said, "I wish we could live here," as we were leaving.

This temple has a unique story, because it used to be the Provo Tabernacle.  I attended this tabernacle for our annual church gathering where a few congregations met at the same time.  I think I remember my little brother Joseph throwing something off the balcony once.

Then, in 2010, there was a fire that burned the tabernacle completely.  Later, the LDS church decided to reconstruct it and make it a temple.  Here's a neat video of the time lapse on the work:

So glad we got to go!
