The first song Joshua learned months ago was, "I Love To See The Temple" with a two-year old twist. "Be-Be-Bah" is temple in his language.

So when our opportunity came to have a special tour of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple, I wanted all of us to go together.

What a special occasion it was. Joshua clung tightly to his Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House pamphlet in one hand and held Megan's hand with his other as he reverently toured the temple.

It is a memory we hope for our children to always remember. The older three children signed their name on their pamphlets, and we traced Joshua and Drew's hands on theirs. We dated them and promised as a family to one day return all seven of us together to the temple when Drew is 19 years old.

"We love to see the temple, we went inside today."

P.S. I hope to never forget Luke's (temporary) souvenir from the temple. Ranch dressing! After the tour, we had refreshments, Luke liked the ranch dressing that was served with the salad so much, he brought some home because "this will taste really good with carrots." The sister in charge thought it was so cute, she sent us home with more.
