Today was another beautiful hot day down here in Mesa. We got up this morning at 5:30 and got ready for 8:00 church. The ward we attended was just awesome and the spirit was really strong. It was a great block of meetings for all of us and AJ did really well. We had some lunch and after a nap we got ready to visit the Temple grounds. WOW, it was so beautiful to see the temple grounds and the temple. Dad, I can't believe that you lived just one block away from this gorgeous building during your mission, talk about motivation! We walked around taking picture, looking at the details, and slowly roasting! It was 105 while we were out there and I had forgotten to put AJ's sunscreen on! We had to seek shelter in the visitors center. We were able to get these really cute pictures of AJ and Alaina on this petrified tree that was donated to the temple.
They had this really neat room that displayed paintings and photographs depicting the Savior's life. AJ was being fussy so Aaron took him out so that I could take my time and enjoy this unique room. All the images were ones that I had never seen before and the spirit was so strong you simply could not deny feeling it. After looking around, visiting with the sister missionaries, and taking pictures with the Christus statue, we got back in the car and came back to the condo.
Please notice how everyone else in this picture is black and I am still just as pasty as ever, I swear that I have been out in the sun just as much as all of them!
