His House in Ogden & Manti

That picture makes me laugh. It’s such a typical face of my youngest.
We went to the Ogden Temple many times while we lived in Layton. It closed for renovation around the time that we moved. We decided to play hooky from school a few weeks ago in order to attend the open house. Rob wasn’t able to join us and we missed him but the kids and I had a very nice day.

We walked through the beautiful rooms and Madeleine enjoyed seeing the bride’s room the most. Nate liked the baptistry and Caroline liked the lights. Of course, the Celestial Room was my favorite.

It was so special to experience this with my children. These pictures were taken at the fountain. My kids threw a couple of pennies in and then fished some back out. I told them that meant bad wishes would come true 😉

Today was the dedication of the Ogden Temple and I was able to take Nate with me (Rob was in Fairview again). I loved that we took the time to visit the temple first. He was attentive during the whole thing and we had a nice time.

A couple of weeks ago we visited Rob in Fairview and there is really just so little to do around there so one of the days we ventured down to Manti to see the temple. It really is so beautiful! When I mentioned this to my Grandma Allred yesterday she told me that her father actually worked on the interior of the temple as it was being built. Fun little family history tidbit.

All of these days were great and full of love. We felt love from our Heavenly Father, I felt love for my children, and I hope they felt love from me. I’m so glad that Rob and I were sealed together in the Lord’s holy temple and our children are ours forever.
