Gila Valley Temple

Last Friday we took a family trip to the open house of the Gila Valley Temple. We were met there by some of the Gurrs, and we all took a tour of the temple together.
Being in a Temple (even one that hasn't been dedicated yet) is always so much more special when you are there with family.
It was so great to teach the kids more about temples, and to watch them marvel at the beauty within the temple walls.
One room of the Temple had the most beautiful chandelier that I have ever seen. It was nearly impossible to take our eyes off of it. Eliza and Sarah especially loved the sealing room. (the room where you get married.)
All of the kids loved getting to spend a little time with their cousins, and grandparents.
After attending the open house, Grandma Gurr showed the kids the elementary school that she attended. Part of it has been turned into a museum. We had has fun looking at all the "cool old stuff". I was really surprised at how interested my kids were in everything. They thought the old record player was way cooler than an i-pod.
They got to sit in an old school classroom, and Sarah even sat in a chair that once belonged to President Spencer W. Kimball.
We had a wonderful day together. I am so grateful that Adam and I were Married the Temple so we can be together as a family for eternity.


  1. What a special day! Your kids are darling as ever!

  2. I'm glad you got the chance to go. We went too. I loved it. Hope to see you this summer!

  3. So awesome! I am glad you all were able to go to the temple and see Mom's old school.
