I love to see the temple...

I'm going there some day.

Well, today I am one step closer. I interviewed with the bishop again today, and he filled out my recommend. Now I just need to schedule an appointment with the stake president. It won't be long now!So, of course after that, I had to take a drive over to the temple this evening.
The girls went with me.
I just love to walk around the grounds. It's so peaceful and lovely.
It was close to dusk already, so I didn't get many shots of the gardens-next time.

I loved this window. It's not real clear in the picture, but there's like a star shape in the middle of the circle. With the light shining through it, it just looked really cool. The picture didn't really capture it though.
