Draper Temple Open House

A few weeks ago, David & I made reservations to attend the Open House for the new temple in Draper. We went this evening right after David got off of work. It was a pretty neat experience. Neither one of us had ever attended a Temple Open House before, so we were excited. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside (temple rules) & it was too dark to take pictures outside once we were done, so I don't have any images to post (sorry). We started off in a chapel down the street from the temple where we watched a short 12 minute video on temples and their importance to Latter-day Saints. Then we boarded a bus that led us on a little 5 minutes journey up to the temple grounds. After that, we just took a nice, relaxing walk through the entire building. It was beautiful! One of my favorite parts was the paintings. Many of them had gorgeous, vivid colors that just made those rooms sparkle with life. :) It was a nice adventure, to say the least.
