Draper Temple Open House Visit

Tyfani, Mica and I took the 4 grandsons to the Draper Temple Open House today. It was the first time for the boys to be able to walk through a temple and it was a nice experience for all of us. The outside is gray stone from China, the inside floor stone is from France,and the interior doors and woodwork are from Africa. The murals reflecting our Utah scenery covered the walls of 2 rooms. The window glass was beautiful, similar in some ways to the Mount Timpanogos Temple. The bride's room was very beautiful with unusual cut glass work on the lights. In the sealing room there was a couple that taught us about families being forever. We couldn't take pictures inside the temple of course, since we were all being very reverent. Our pictures are taken next door at the church where cookies were served and there were displays around the room. It was a great afternoon!
