Yesterday we packed (very tightly) in the cars and made a quick (2 1/2 hour 😬) trip to Star Valley, Wyoming with our friends to go to the new Star Valley LDS Temple open house. The Star Valley temple is the first temple to be built in Wyoming, so it is super exciting for our friends from Star Valley. Yesterday was the first time I have ever been to a temple open house. It was really cool! Walking around the temple and hearing about the hard work, time, and prayer that is put into building a temple is very humbling. The beauty of a temple is literally breathtaking. While we were walking around I was reminded of the importance of the temples and how blessed I have been in my life to always have a temple so close to where I live. I know for a fact that when we go to the temple we are incredibly blessed and the feeling after being at the temple is unlike any other feeling. The quote, ‘The blessings of the temple are priceless’ by Thomas S. Monson says it all. Not only did we get to experience the brand new temple, but we had such a fun time with our friends, had a delicious Oreo shake, and got no sleep last night because we got home so late 😴(worth it).
Also, ignore that we do not look very good in this pic. The lighting was not doing us any good. 😝
