At the Draper Temple


So, Ben, Melanie and Mike went out to see the Draper Temple Open House. As we were getting on the bus, we saw Joan Connolly get off the bus. We said Hello, spoke a bit, Joan asked if we were with Kate and Eric. "Nope, haven't seen 'em." Then, as we were walking through the temple, Eric grabbed Mike's shoulder, and there they were, both Kate and Eric. It is a beautiful temple, very nice, beautifully designed and decorated, and a smaller scale than others. Though the weather was good for us, much of the Open House period was during the cold season, so almost every step from getting off the bus to getting back on, was either in the temple, or the neighboring stake house, or covered temporary walkways, with lights and heat capacity. Here we are after the tour, in front of the neighboring Stake House with a connecting walkway. We celebrated after with a burger at Five Guys Burgers and Fries (As a burger guy, I can say, these are good burgers and fries www.fiveguys.com/. Ben got back home to finish an assignment in time!
