Houston Temple

One thing that's been awesome about living in the Houston area is being so close to Jason's sister Tiffany. She and her family live in one of the cities right outside of Houston (unfortunately, on the opposite side as us - but that's our fault), and so we have been able to see them pretty regularly since we moved here.

In mid-February Tiffany's daughter Brynn's preschool group took a field trip to the Houston Temple (of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). The girls and I were able to join them. It was so cool to be able to see the temple! Each of the kids were given papers that were sort of like "I Spy;" the paper had pictures of parts of the temple (the front entrance, one of the windows, the spire, etc.) and when the child found that part of the real temple, they got to circle it on their page.

Ellie and Zelda had so much fun. They spent pretty much the whole time giggling with their cousin Brynn, and really liked walking around the temple grounds and especially seeing the fountains and all of the flowers.

After a little picnic-style snack at the temple, we all drove to a nearby mall where the kids got to play on a fun indoor playground, and we had lunch at the food court. From there we finished up and went home.

It was a fun activity!
