Our primary took a trip to the Dallas Temple on Saturday. Raine was really looking forward to seeing the temple and worked hard to learn the words to “I love to see the temple” before the trip. The Temple President and Matron talked to the kids while they sat on the stairs in the lobby and then the kids sang “I love to see the temple” and “I am a child of God.” It was a neat experience for them.

After singing for the Temple President, we took a self-guided tour of the Temple grounds. Sister Walker, our Primary President, was able to keep their attention for a few minutes, but once we got to the big lawn and the water fountains . . . the tour was over!
We managed to pull them all out of the fountains just long enough to take a group photo on the temple steps.

After visiting the temple we stopped for lunch (and ice cream) at Jason’s Deli . . . mmmmmmm!
