Temple Trip

Nope---not in Alaska (although that is in the works for NEXT summer, we hope)!

It has been bugging me that I have not gotten around to posting about our temple trip in Guadalajara last February, and so...well...better late than never.

It was a ward temple night, so we booked a babysitter, and we drove to Guadalajara (about 1 hour) with another couple from the ward. They were very sweet, and we enjoyed getting to know them better. It was entertaining to learn about their line of business in their semi-retired lifestyle. They now export tequila to the States. Hmm. To each his own. But I digress...

The Guadalajara Temple is beautiful, and located right downtown!

We did the session in Spanish, but all of the Gringos wore headphones to listen in English. It was very distracting for me to hear a combination of both languages (perhaps I should have turned my earphones up louder?)...but the spirit was strong, and it was very nice to attend the temple.

We will definitely have to make a better effort to attend the Guadalajara temple regularly in future years!

That is a beautiful temple! I love visiting temples that I've never been too before.

I guess I shouldn't be so judgemental but the other couple that went to the temple makes money from selling alcohol? I won't post another word.
