I love to see the Temple

In April we had the wonderful opportunity of attending the dedication of the temple in Langley British Columbia. It was so neat to feel the excitement of everyone to have the first temple built in their province. We also had connections, which made the weekend even more exciting. Caleb's Mom was conducting the choir for the cornerstone ceremony and we were able to sing in the choir. Caleb and I may have not known all the words to the songs, but we made up for it in spirit!

It was such an amazing experience. We were so close to the prophet and Elder Uchdorf. We were also able to get into one of the dedication sessions, pretty much by the skin of our teeth! The evening prior we attended a cultural event put on by youth in the province and it was pretty amazing. They danced and sang and it was all incredible. The prophet loved it and even wore a flashing Canadian pin! He sure loves Canada.

So Mom Lee was pretty much a celebrity this weekend. She got to lay some of the mortar in the cornerstone ceremony. President Monson asked the lady in the green dress to come help, because that's his favorite color. Good choice of dress!

And later she was also interviewed by Salt Lake press. She did a great job conducting the choir.

We had such a great weekend and it was so much fun to see everybody!

LOVE these pictures, Kail. What an amazing experience. I definitely wish I could have been there! You have to get Caleb's mom to email me the music - I need some ideas for new music!
