Yesterday was a great day. We left first thing in the morning to attend the Indianapolis Temple Open House. Oh, it was so beautiful! We are so excited that this is going to be our temple. I loved being there with my kids. It's the first time we've been in a temple with Sadie.
After our tour, we got this picture together:
There was a huge tent set up next to the temple where they had displays and information about the church and temples. I love this picture of the kids in front of the Christus statue replica. It looks like He's ready to swallow them all up in a big hug.
Jeff, Savannah and the boys all had the opportunity to serve at the temple for 5 hours after our tour. Sadie and I did a little shopping and then hung out on the temple grounds while we waited for them. There was a big photo screen where people could get their picture with the temple. There wasn't time to get one with our whole family, but Sadie got one that turned out super cute.
Jeff's assignment was to help with parking. It was a hot and sweaty job, but he said he had a great time. We can't decide if he looks more like Indiana Jones or Luke Skywalker. :)
The other kids helped with a few different things. Mostly they put shoe coverings on the visitors before they entered the temple. Sometimes they moved to the exit and helped take the shoe coverings off. For a while, Savannah got to help take pictures of the guests in front of the temple. Each of the kids had a good experience and they were happy to help.
It was a great day and one we'll remember for a long, long time!
