Such a Great weekend!

me and my hubby after the dedication!

I am so happy to say that i live 5 min. away from the Gila Valley Temple. This past weekend the Temple was dedicated and now is open. I am so thankful that i can go as often as i want now. Before we were having to find a babysitter all day to make the 3 hr trip up and back to go to the Mesa Temple!
During the Cultural Celebration i got to sit 4 rows behind President Monson. This weekend was such a spiritual High i didn't want it to end!! Go here and see more pictures of the Cultural celebration! - Ariz. Latter-day Saint youth perform in temple celebration CLICK to see President Monson and Elder Iring singing! SO cute!

How awesome is that to be in the very same room as Pres.Monson! SO jealous! I really am so excited for you to have a temple close by. What a blessing! Oh, BTW LOVE your dress!

What a neat experience! I'm happy for you to have a temple so close now! On a trip many year ago we went to the Mesa Temple, it is so beautiful!! And, to be so close to Pres. Monson, Awesome:)

You are so lucky to be close to a temple! We are 3 1/2 hours away from our temple {OKC}. My oldest will be going for the first time this Sat. to do baptisms! :)
Have a beautiful day!
