Sunday we went to the Mesa temple to walk around. There was an awesome storm coming; the sky looked amazing. Because of the awesomeness of the sky overhead Allan insisted on holding Ember and my diaper bag and my camera bag so I could take pictures! I must have told/asked him twenty times to let me take at least one bag or hold Ember for at least a couple minutes but he was stubborn about me getting the short time we were there to take pictures!
It was really hot outside despite the impending storm and the fact that it was 7pm. The kids were pink cheeked and sweaty minutes after arriving. That didn’t phase them though. So many new things to look at, no time for worrying about the heat!
The kids loved the place. It reminded me of the first time I went to a temple visitors center as a child. I was probably 12 or around there somewhere and we went to the Salt Lake City temple. It was a really special time. I’ll never forget the peaceful, happy feelings of that day. Watching my kids in this visitors center made me wonder if they’d remember this short, hot visit to the temple together when they are older.
