Yesterday as a family we decided to head to the San Antonio temple before we move.
Last Sunday Dustin and I spoke in sacrament about the blessings of temples so we thought it would be a great family outing one Sunday, and yesterday worked out well.
This last week the kids have had some nasty colds so we just went to sacrament yesterday and didn't take Thomas to nursery because we didn't want to pass the germs. He was a little put out since he LOVES nursery, hopefully he will like primary just as much, since he will be in primary next year - I still can't wrap my brain on that one, I shouldn't have a kid that old.
ANYWAY, so we decided to head to the temple.
And we broke a few rules in the process...
As we were driving when we realized we were low in gas, so we stopped to get gas, which we try not to do on a Sunday. Than Dustin was eating Dorritos on the way and got some chips stuck in his throat so we ended up in the McDonald's drive-thru to get some waters... than the Temple grounds and parking were closed so we ended up parking in a dead end road that had a sign "Don't Park" and walked around the fence when we saw a spot where we could sneak in so we did, and walked in the grounds when they were closed. So we laughed about all the rule breaking to get to the temple, and that it was a little ironic.
Thomas loved it and was excited to see the temple and to see Moroni on top and pretended to be Nephi as we were walking around. Nephi is one of his favorite Book of Mormon heroes.
The temple was gorgeous and it was a wonderful time with my family! I'm so grateful for temples and this Gospel, and I'm grateful that Dustin and I are married and sealed so we can be a family for eternity!
