I Want to See the Temple

On Good Friday, we headed to the DC area
for our short spring break.
The weather was absolutely beautiful
and the kids loved seeing the Temple.

Did you know that the Washington DC Temple was the first
Temple built in the east coast? It was also the 1st Temple since
Salt Lake to feature 6 spires. These 6 spires
portray the church as a "light to the world."
The 3 spires to the east represent the Melchizedek Priesthood,
and those to the west represent the Aaronic Priesthood.
It is 1 of 5 Temples featuring the Angel Moroni holding the
gold plates.

If there is a maple tree around, I am going to take
a picture of it. I love maple trees.
Especially the weepy ones like this one.

Ruby loves her big brother Ethan.
A very rare, precious moment.

I absolutely love this shot of Savannah.

This picture looks all sweet and innocent.
Well, it is not! The two of them took off running
towards the front of the Temple.
Thankfully, Xander caught up before they made
it to the parking lot.

My happy family.

Having some fun on the back steps.

Larry captured a great shot of Ethan.

I hope you all have had a wonderful spring too.
