We ate a picnic on the outskirts of the temple grounds. The temple was closed due to the holiday weekend, but that meant we were the only ones there, which was kinda nice.
Lunch! I made a point of it to grab this quilt specifically- it's a handmade quilt my great-grandmother made for me when I was in high school. It was very special to have my 4 little ones on it, at the temple. We miss my Grandma Knight.
The landscaping is so beautiful- as are the grounds at all the temples. It was the perfect day for a picnic.Cute lil' thing enjoying her poptart
It was a wonderful experience! As we pulled away from the temple in our van, Fred had a great idea. We stopped and said a prayer thanking Heavenly Father for the great time we had and for all the temples. When the prayer was over we all sang "I Love to See the Temple." I felt like I was in an Ensign article about families and temples. I'm SO grateful for my eternal family!
