I love to see the Temple...

This year for my birthday I asked Joel if we could visit Megan for her birthday. So we made the 7 & 1/2 hour trip and what a marvelous time we had! Hiking the red rocks in the morning and spending the afternoon in the temple. Megan went with her ward to do baptisms and we went on a session at the same time. Here is a shot of the temple when we were done. You an barely see it in the darkness but it was lovely just the same.

Later that evening we took Megan to the Olive Gardens for dinner and as we were seated I realized Elder Holland was seated in the booth right behind us!! What a thrill to be so close to this amazing man! Later, when he started to leave with his family, he greeting us and took my hand. Couldn't ask for a better ending to a perfect day.
