Last night we had the chance to take the kids and go threw the Draper Temple before its dedication. While I was getting the kids ready to go Porter told me "Mommy I'm going to be quite in the temple so I can see Jesus". Such a sweet spirit he has. We meet Jen and Paul and their kids as well as Matt and his friend Sharah. It was neat to take the kids threw. Alison always has lots of questions about the Temple and it was nice to show her what the inside of one looks like. She relay liked the brides room, and the celestial room. Porter loved the cows (baptismal fonts oxen). He saw them and went crazy talking about he white cows. Then when we were able to walk around the other side and see the water in the font he says "O we better not step on that". As we kept walking he saw the oxen again and said Mommy more cows. Kids will be kids. Alison and Porter had a hard time waiting in the long lines to move from room to room but over all I think it was a good experience hopefully one they will remember for a long time. I can't wait tell they have it dedicated and James and I can go back and enjoy the peace and wonderful spirit that is there in the temple.
