Monday, January 10th, the rest of the world was on its way to work and we were on our way to see the SD Temple. We actually stayed a few blocks away from the freeway so it was on our way out of town. The temple and its gates were actually closed (on Monday, of course) but we were lucky and snuck in behind the hispanic landscape company's truck on its way in. And yes, eventually we were approached by security and visited with him for a while. I was surprised the temple grounds were so small. In pictures it seems so massive but up close it doesn't look any bigger than Idaho Falls. We enjoyed the warm temps and beautiful flowers and were lucky we didn't get stung by the swarm of bees that Ellie fell into. Also, to the gentleman who took our picture that either cut out the temple or cut our legs off, thanks but no thanks. So much for getting a family picture.
