So Worth the Drive!! (SLC Temple Model)

On May 28th, the LDS newsroom announced a "Scaled Model Provides Salt Lake Temple Open House Experience" and I have been anxiously awaiting until the day when we could go see it! :)  Yesterday we went up to Salt Lake for Casey to sign a paper and the rode TRAX downtown.  The model is *amazing* and there is also a video behind it briefly explaining the rooms.  I would highly recommend this to everyone--including those who are not LDS.  It is a great learning opportunity to see into the building and to understand briefly about the special purpose of it.  The model is located in the South Visitor Center on Temple Square.  The pictures we took are not the best but more for our memory!  Please see the link above to view excellent pictures!

(This is the West side of the model.  
The "alcove" above my shoulder is where we stood to have several wedding pictures taken!)
(Gotta love the reflection...  The temple is so gorgeous and the detail is extremely accurate!  
I loved being able to see the 4th & 5th (I think...) floors because I have never seen it...)
(The walking around the rest of the visitor center right now, there are exhibits 
explaining how the temple was built and showing drafts and blue-prints and also 
cutting the granite, etc.  I loved this picture of the temple--although the picture 
isn't the greatest because it was at an awkward angle to take.)
(Of course we had to go take a picture in front of the real thing now!  
We were slightly in a hurry and having problems trying to take a 
self-portrait picture while using my camera phone. 
 I just love being here... especially with my sweetheart!)
