Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House

Last weekend we had the chance to go through the new LDS temple -- the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I had taken Becca and her friends earlier in the week, and Becca loved it so much she claims that's now where she'll get married (poor Provo Temple ... :). In any case, here we are in front of it:


The windows of this beautiful building had stars in them -- the windows were frosted, but the stars were plain glass in the midst of the frosted window (if that makes any sense). Anyway, Becca and her friends noticed that the higher windows had more stars. The windows on ground level had none, the second floor had a few, the third floor more, and the fourth floor the most. Cool! The chandeliers also looked like they were made of stars if you stood underneath them and looked up.

My kids are VERY lucky kids this year! This is the third temple they've been able to go inside since we also got to go through the Draper Temple open house, and they all got to come into the Provo Temple when Becca was sealed to us. I hope they remember this year forever!


(I love that Shayla wanted to bring her doll with her ...)

Shayla's doll looks like a real baby! It's good that you said it was a doll or people would have been wondering why you didn't tell them you had another one! :)

That's the same way I decided where I wanted to get married--I went to the Mount Timpanogos Temple open house and loved it.

Lucky indeed! I think is cause they have a great Momma!!!
Adam and I were married in the San Diego Temple because we both toured it and it's beautiful so it's a good way to choose. But yeah poor Provo the don't get much action!

I agree with Becca, it looks and sounds like a beautiful temple to be married in. Not that the beauty changes the ordnance, it just will look nicer in pictures.
