Much needed

Yesterday we spent our first night away from Walker. We have been wanting to go to the temple and with it being 3 hours away, it takes some planning. About two weeks ago Eric asked me to take a day off so we could go to the temple. He wanted to make it an over night trip because we both work and he goes to school. So we asked Karen (our babysitter) and she agreed! She is so amazing because she doesn't normally watch kids on a school night. Lets just say it was so worth it and much needed. I only got one picture of the temple and then the camera decided not to work. So heres a picture from lds.org

It felt so good to be at the Temple. I can not wait for the temple to built in Fort Collins so we can attend the the temple more, but the temple will not be finished probably until we leave. I have a testimony in attending the temple. I know that it strenghens your marriange and your family. I feel so amazing after attending and doing the Lords work. When I leave the temple I feel so pumped up. You can learn so much from going to the House of the Lord. I am so grateful for the knowledge of temples and for belonging to Christ church that teaches that famlies can be forever.

I Love to See the Temple
 I love to see the temple.
I’m going there someday
To feel the Holy Spirit,
To listen and to pray.
For the temple is a house of God,
A place of love and beauty.
I’ll prepare myself while I am young;
This is my sacred duty.
I love to see the temple.
I’ll go inside someday.
I’ll cov’nant with my Father;
I’ll promise to obey.
For the temple is a holy place
Where we are sealed together.
As a child of God, I’ve learned this truth:
A fam’ly is forever.

Karen and Walker went to the store together and you can see how much he missed us.....
